There's a good saying: we become like the friends we spend time the most. 

If this is true, then it's only logical that we 
choose the friends who could have great influence on us. They could greatly affect the quality of our life.

The righteous should choose friends carefully, for the way of the wicked leads them astray. Proverbs 12:26

No one is born with exact beliefs, opinion and upbringing. Getting beyond these differences is what makes a relationship rich. All relationships have things to be worked out. 

While we have acquaintances, we need friends who would help us see the truth about ourselves and our lives. People who care enough for us to spend time to speak the truth in love to us. A good relationship does not break down when truth is spoken in love.

Be friendly to everyone but choose your best friends wisely. 

1. Tells you the Truth in Love
Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful. Proverbs 27:6

2. Gives you sound advice
Ointment and perfume delight the heart,
The sweetness of a man's friend gives delight by hearty counsel. Proverbs 27:9

3. Refines you
As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27:17

4. Helps you grow in wisdom
He walks with wise men will be wise, but the companion of fools will be destroyed. Proverbs 13:20

5. Stays close to you
A man who has friends must himself be friendly, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

6. Loves you and stands by you
A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. Proverbs 17:17

7. Helps in time of trouble
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift us his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, for he has no one to help him up. Ecclessiastes 4:9-10

What are the other things that you think a good friend naturally does?
Work with a Purpose
The wisdom of the prudent is to give thought to their ways, but the folly of fools is deception. Proverbs 14:8

Insist on Integrity
Righteousness guards the person of integrity, but wickedness overthrows the sinner. Proverbs 13:6

Never make Excuses
He who conceals his transgressions will not prosper, but he who confesses and forsakes them will find compassion. Proverbs 28:13

Never Stop Learning.
The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge, for the ears of the wise seek it out. Proverbs 18:15

Economize your time and Energy.
Sluggards do not plow in season; so at harvest time they look but find nothing.Proverbs 20:4

Resolve to Stick with It.
For though the righteous fall seven times, they rise again, but the wicked stumble when calamity strikes.

Do you think you are Righteous?
Righteous men are not those who never failed. They are not flawless nor perfect. But persistent.
Every time you fall, Rise up...NEVER GIVE UP!

Submit to the Lord Jesus Christ.
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7

Seek His will in everything that you do... Think of what will last FOREVER...

This spells a WINNER!
What do you think do you need to apply in your life right now?

"Some people don't understand the promises they're making when they make them," I said.

"Right, of course. But you keep the promise anyway. That's what love is. Love is keeping the promise anyway."

Grief does not change you... It reveals you.

But I believe in true love, you know? I don't believe that everybody gets to keep their eyes or not get sick or whatever, but everybody should have true love, and it should last at least as long as your life does.

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18


Protect me, God, for the only safety I know is found in the moments I seek You.
I told You, Eternal One, “You are my Lord,
    for the only good I know in this world is found in You alone.”
The beauty of faith-filled people encompasses me.
    They are true, and my heart is thrilled beyond measure.

All the while the despair of many,
    who abandoned Your goodness for the empty promises of false gods,
increases day by day.I refuse to pour out blood offerings,    to utter their names from my lips.

You, Eternal One, are my sustenance and my life-giving cup.
    In that cup, You hold my future and my eternal riches.
My home is surrounded in beauty;
    You have gifted me with abundance and a rich legacy.

I will bless the Eternal, whose wise teaching orchestrates my days
    and centers my mind at night.
He is ever present with me;
    at all times He goes before me.

I will not live in fear or abandon my calling
    because He stands at my right hand.

This is a good life—my heart is glad, my soul is full of joy,
    and my body is at rest.
    Who could want for more?

You will not abandon me to experience death and the grave
    or leave me to rot alone.
Instead, You direct me on the path that leads to a beautiful life.
    As I walk with You, the pleasures are never-ending,
    and I know true joy and contentment.
Keep your eyes open and your mind active.

You dont have to be good to start.. But you have to start! :)

Our will is the strongest part of our soul.

Dream with your eyes open. 

The past: a place of potential promise, and possibility. We are the sum of our choices, as what we do now defines what we will do. Infinite decisions mean infinite consequences, for the future is never truly set.

Just because someone stumbles and loses their path, doesn't mean they can't be saved.

Countless choices define our fate…Enough ripples and you change the tide. For the future is never set.

The greatest gift we have is to bear their pain without breaking and it comes from your most human part – hope.

Your best is enough. Trust me.
Found this letter from a dog online...
This is too cute not to share...

With Albear the French Bulldog :)

1. My life is likely to last ten to fifteen years. Any separation from you will be painful: remember that before you get me.

2. Give me time to understand what you want of me.

3. Place your trust in me—it is crucial to my wellbeing.

4. Do not be angry at me for long, and do not lock me up as punishment.

5. You have your work, your entertainment, and your friends. I only have you.

6. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don’t understand your words, I understand your voice.

7. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget.

8. Remember before you hit me that I have sharp teeth that could easily hurt you, but I choose not to bite you because I love you.

9. Before you scold me for being uncooperative, obstinate, or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me. Perhaps I might not be getting the right food, or I have been out too long, or my heart is getting too old and weak.

10. Take care of me when I get old. You too will grow old. Accompany me on difficult journeys. Never say: “I cannot bear to watch” or “Let it happen in my absence.” Everything is easier for me if you are there—even my death.

Ask and it will be given to you...
Seek and you will find...
Knock and the door will be opened to you...

Matthew 7:7

Everyone who asks receives...
He who seeks finds...
And to him who knocks, the door will be opened...

Which of you, if his son asks for a bread, will give him a stone?

Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? 

If you then, though youre evil know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask Him!"

Matthew 7:8-11

These things I plan won’t happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, do not despair, for these things will surely come to pass. Just be patient! They will not be overdue a single day!” (Habakkuk 2:3 LB)
