> Cultivating Good Friendships
> by Chaplain Dan Langerock
> We learn to appreciate our friends when we have hard times in our
>lives. It may be a time of illness, divorce, death in the family, loss of a
>job, or any number of other maladies that affect our existence. This is
>when we can really tell who are our friends, and who are not.
> Take My Hand
>I cannot ease your aching heart, nor take your pain away,
>But let me stay and take your hand and walk with you today.
>I'll listen when you need to talk, I'll wipe away your tears,
>I'll share your worries when they come, I'll help you face your fears.
>I'm here and I will stand by you, each hill you have to climb.
>So take my hand, let's face the world. Live one day at a time.
>You're not alone, for I'm still here...I'll go that extra mile,
>And when your grief is easier, I'll help you learn to smile!
> One way you can have good friends is to be a friend. If you are
>faithful to others when they are experiencing difficulty, it is more likely
>you will have that support you need when you are 'going through the
>wringer' of life.
>Search for ways you can help others, and in turn you will be helped.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
