A RESCUER had to be rescued.
Last Friday a St Bernard dog, normally a type used as part of a rescuing team, had to be rescued herself.
It appears Daisy, the eight and half stone dog, was with her owners on Scafell Pike, Cumbria when she collapsed with pain in her rear legs.
The Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team spent nearly five hours rescuing her and carrying her back down the mountain.
Although Daisy is not a rescue dog herself, St Bernards are well known for assisting rescuers in the Alps.
During this pandemic, we have heard of so many of our NHS personnel who have worked so hard to help those with the virus but they have had to be ‘rescued’ themselves because they too have contacted the virus.
Living through the past few months has revealed so many heroes and heroines who have gone the ‘extra mile’ to help those in greater need and often they have put themselves in danger, and we give grateful thanks for each one of them.
In many parts of the Bible we are encouraged to step out and to help others around us.
So often we can feel that we are not capable or equipped to help but as we step out we can find that Jesus Christ will give us that strength that we need for the task, as we offer up a prayer to him.
