  • May this encourage you ....

    A friend of mine sent me this. Just wanted to share this one with everyone.

    Words of encouragement from a friend

    Don't spend major time with minor people. If there
    are people in your
    life that continually disappoint you, break promises,
    stomp on your
    dreams, too judgmental, have different values and
    don't have your back
    during difficult times...that is not a friend.

    To have a friend, be a friend. Sometimes in life as
    you grow, your
    friends will either grow or go. Surround yourself with
    people who reflect
    values, goals interests and lifestyle.

    When I think of any of my successes, I am thankful to

    from whom all blessings flow, and to my family and
    friends that enrich
    my life.

    Over the years my phone book has changed because I
    changed for the
    better. At first you think you're going to be alone,
    but after a while new
    people show up in your life that make your life so
    much sweeter and
    easier to endure.

    Remember what your elders used to say, "Birds of a
    feather flock
    together. If you're an eagle, don't hang around

    Chickens Can't Fly!

    I love the Lord and thank Him for all that he does in
    my life,
    therefore, I'm passing this on. Yes I do love Jesus.
    He is my source of
    existence and Savior. He keeps me functioning each and
    everyday. Without Him,
    I will be nothing.

    Without Him, I am nothing but with Him I can do all
    things. Phil 4:13

    Be Positive - Be Progressive - Take the time to make a
    difference in someone's life.

    Walk by faith

    Not by sight

    Receive God's blessings

    hmmm, now there are people in my life that maynot be being friends at this time...but God sometimes encourages us to be giving to our enemies right? I guess there are times I see it important to be a friend even if the person isn't being one to me. Hard yes....and not good for IC if it causes you stress....but in the long run I do think happiness will happen! Don't you agree Angela?
