TO THE ONE CARRYING A BROKEN HEART : 6 COMFORTING VERSES

I remember observing an older woman who had a hunch on her back when I was a teenager. One day I befriended her and asked her how she got this hunch. She replied how she was forced to do labor-intensive jobs by carrying huge sacks of wheat on her back since she was a young girl.
