To have a body burdened.

“Virtually everything in our lives is gifted to us, and there are many ‘gifts’ that we would prefer never to have received. It is part of our incarnational existence. We are the offspring of others. To have an embodied existence in space and time is to have a body burdened with the DNA of eons and a family and culture that is both the product and carrier of history.”

  1. To do nothing in the new day but that which is truly in HIS full light of the new day…everything sorted out through the tender mercies before more is taken on…such hope. For we cannot carry in our own strength the burden of history… not even our own DNA.
