When times were tough or there were heartaches or heartbreaks my Grandma always used to say "The back was made for burdens...............Lord, either lighten my burden or strengthen my back~Thomas Fuller.

She was such a wise woman, Grandma never asked that any burden be taken from her, she just prayed to the Lord and asked how to handle it and for Him to be with her.

In her later years, Grandma had two back operations.......her comment was always that the Lord had more work for her to do and she had to get her backed fixed for more!!!
