“Johnnie, don’t you think you have as much as you can carry?” said Frank to his brother, who was standing with open arms receiving the bundles his father placed upon them. “You’ve more than you can carry now.”
“Never mind,” said Johnnie, in a sweet, happy voice; “my father knows how much I can carry.”
How long it takes many of us to learn the lesson little Johnnie had by heart, “Father knows how much I can carry.” No grumbling, no discontentment; but a sweet trust in our heavenly Father’s love and care that we shall not be overburdened.
