Last week while we were at rehearsals for a play in which our children were involved, I asked my friends if I could get a picture of the two of them because I wanted to tell you about them. They wanted me in the picture, too, because that’s just the kind of people that they are.
I often feel very lonely for like-minded friends and while I am blessed with many such friends across the globe who I can interact with daily online, locally the story is different. Recently I went through a situation where I was overwhelmed by the opposition to my family and our values, and it seemed to me that no one cared about the truth. It seemed that way. But then Heather comes and asks to hear our story. Annie messages and sends encouragement. I remember, once again, that I do have friends right here that stick closer than a brother. I do have friends right here that seek the true, the good, the beautiful. I do have friends that trust my heart, and the heart of my husband and son.
Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. ~Romans 12
Two are better than one because they have a good return for their work; If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up. ~Ecclesiastes 4
