Sometimes little ones need a head boost.  These two were walking up an incline and the little hiker received a helping hand.  The scene reminded me of my earthly father lending a hand to my head.  My father has since passed away, but he game me a nice glimpse into our Heavenly Father and what he does for us.  I drag, get tired, collapse, turn to the right or to the left, but my God has his hand on me to give me the boost that I need. His hand isn’t hard or unyielding.  It is conformed to my head and to my needs for guidance and direction. He is tender, yet direct and purposeful.
