The real friends in the world.

Richard had grown up as an only child not having the opportunity to share his adventures or misadventures if you will with a sibling. There was no playing with a brother or sister pretending as Daniel Boone to fight the Indians away from the Fort called Boonesboro.There was no pretending to ride the western range as the Lone Ranger with your faithful sidekick Tonto or Tontolina if it happened to be you sister that you were pretending with! So an only child still uses his imagination even if it is to use his dog as his sidekick. Life still has to be explored and conquered! As children grow into adults there is so much peer pressure and influences whether it be good or bad. Individuals seem to not be able to distinguish the difference between an acquaintance or a true friend. There are so many people who get into situations and need a visit or a kind word or maybe some financial assistance at this low moment in their life and there will be a true friend or family member who will go out of their way and stick by them and do whatever it takes to be supportive of them even though that friend or family member may be a little strapped of time or finances but they will still do whatever it takes. The people that were thought to be friends don’t seem to exist at this time even though you beg and plead with them to no avail. Now when you have pulled yourself out of the valley you want to return to whom you thought were your friends and once again you want to accept what they want to bestow on you as what you and they believe are tokens of their friendship. It takes more than money to be a true friend! Friendship and love of family goes much deeper! It has been said that ” a cow never gets it’s tail too high that it doesn’t need it at fly time”! Think about it, and realize who your real treasure is and search your mind and soul and reflect on who has really been at the Fort protecting you from the valleys and desperations of life. Isn’t it only right that you repay their love for you and share at least a little of yourself?
Also think of this in terms of your relationship with Jesus Christ! Hasn’t He always been there for you even when you slipped into the valley? Spend time with your real friends and family and spend some time with the Ultimate Friend and Family Member your Lord! Why not even visit His House some Sunday?

Quote for Sat January 26, 2013

“The world rings changes, it is never constant but in its disappointments. The world is but a great inn, where we are to stay a night or two, and be gone; what madness is it so to set our heart upon our inn, as to forget our home ” – Thomas Watson Devotional

1 Timothy 4:9,10 (TLB) (Devotional)

We work hard and suffer much in order that people will believe it, for our hope is in the living God who died for all . . . -1 Timothy 4:9,10 (TLB) Our life has its beginning in suffering. Life’s span is marked by pain and tragedy, and our lives terminate with the enemy called death. The person who expects to escape the pangs of suffering and disappointment simply has no knowledge of the Bible , of history, or of life. The master musician knows that suffering precedes glory and acclaim. He knows the hours, days, and months of grueling practice and self-sacrifice that precede the one hour of perfect rendition when his mastership is applauded. The student knows that years of study, privation and self-renunciation precede the triumphant day of graduation and honors. Yes, there are clouds of suffering for each one of us, but God says, “I come to you in the thick dark cloud of suffering,” By faith you can see His blessed face in the storm. God has His plan and purpose in all suffering. Billy Graham

Check out this verse.

For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the ignorant talk of foolish people. Live as free people, but do not use your freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as God’s slaves.

Bible Verse

Ephesians 6:16-18 () 16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; 17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints. . . .
