Emmanuel Garant painting
Befriending the life in others is sometimes a complex
matter. There are times when we offer our strength and
protection, but these are usually only temporary measures.
The greatest blessing we offer others may be the belief
we have in their struggle for freedom, the courage to support
and accompany them as they determine for themselves
the strength that will become their refuge and the foundation
for their lives.
I think it is especially important to believe in someone
at a time when they cannot yet believe in themselves.
Then your belief will become their lifeline.
