I'm backkkkkk

I have 1,021 Facebook "friends".............

Today, my daughter learned a valuable (and VERY HARD) lesson on what friendship is and is not and what happens when we choose things that are not so good. I have tried to tell her (but I am still learning myself), that not everyone means you well. They take great joy in seeing you fail and mess up. Not everyone will always have your best interest at heart. They actually light up when discussing you with others. Not really sure if this is a way of not focusing on their own issues or they really have some serious mental issues. All I know is my daughter and I both recently found this out the hard way...and that is a hard pill to swallow from people you call "friends".

Ephesians 4:16: From him [Christ] the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.

It is important that we surround ourselves with people that will help build us up, support us, that help us make those right choices and reminds us that of God’s love for us. The Bible says "to overcome evil with good" and the way to do this is making a effort to change our thoughts and actions to positive one. Really ask, WWJD??? And then do it. Ask God to allow the Spirit to move in our lives, to guide us in the right direction so that our future will be secure with Him. I saw a shirt on FB that said " I got 99 problems, but my faith ain't one". As long as God is on my side, I know I (and my kids) will be okay.

It's been a long time. The writing thing. So much has happened and is still happening. I appreciate all the emails and calls. They meant alot. And the writing, well, I'm working on it. Be patient with me. Praying that you all have been well and that you are still being that "blessing to someone".
Until next time.......
