She extends her hand to the poor,
Yes, she reaches out her hands to the needy.
The strength of friendship is not evidenced in how she treats you when things are good, it's how she treats you when things aren't.
It’s Monday, and I’m finally back. I hadn’t run in 10 days and danced yesterday for the first time in months. Notwithstanding my allergies and my general malaise, I just needed to get moving again, and I did. I laced up my sneakers, stretched my muscles and ran (some, and walked some). I haven’t been getting the best from myself, so, my empty pitcher could not pour. I have learned that the best cure for what ails me is giving love away; getting out of myself, letting the lavishing of love wash over me and opening my heart to receive God’s love. I have never benefitted from self-pity, and nothing’s changed.
