“A friend loveth at all times. . . A man that hath friends must show himself friendly.”
I never cease to marvel at the generosity of my daughter for her friends. I am not talking about monetary things. I am talking about giving her time, her energy, and her home.
As each opportunity comes up for her to help a friend, her response is so enthusiastic that one would think she was wondering what to do with her time. Actually, her mind is juggling all of her chores to fit in the new one. As I observed this generosity at work, being a typical caring mother, I cautioned her to be careful to not overextend herself; however,
I realized this was her way of putting her faith to work. As she actively demonstrates her friendship, her life is richer by far than it would be if she were not giving of herself. What
an example she is to me.
O GOD, HELP US ALWAYS TO BE AWARE OF YOUR PRESENCE AROUND US AND WITHIN US. USE US AS CHANNELS OF YOUR LOVE AND PEACE.FILL US WITH YOUR GRACE. AMEN.
