Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
~Henry David Thoreau

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Friends

Happy Sunday

Sunset from a couple of days ago from our front porch.

 Friends

Back in July I gave the devotional at Blankets for Babies.
This is a much shortened version.

Friends are an important part of our lives and we have many
different kinds of friends.
Family friends
Church friends
Walking friends
Casual friends
Blogger friends
Best friends 
and Life long friends.

But to be have a friend we must be a friend.

Proverbs 18:24
A man that hath friends must show himself friendly. . . 

Some friends come into our lives for a little while and then leave again.
That used to make me sad till I realized that sometimes
these short lived friends came into my life when we needed
each other. Sometimes just for a day or even a couple of hours.
I believe God gives us a blessing when he sends us these special friends.

Some people may say they have no friends but they would be wrong.
We all have a very special friend in Jesus Christ.
Jesus was the ultimate friend in that He laid down his life for us
so that we can have a home in heaven forever.
The only thing we have to do is Believe,
and ask him to come into our hearts.

John 15:13
Greater love hath no man than this.
That a man lay down his life for his friends.

John 3:16
For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son
that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.

❤️ Thank you my friend for reading this post. ❤️
🙂

A blessed Sunday to all.
👩🏻‍🦳 happyone ❤️

You are so right. I remember that in Brownies when they would teach, to have a friend you have to be a friend as well as, One is silver and the other is gold”

There have been times in my life where I could have been a better friend.

Nice post.
