My ultra cool husband made scones for breakfast today & he makes a fantastic scone! While we were eating, my kids & I had an interesting discussion about friendships with the importance of their various influences. In my morning Bible time, I read Prov 13:20, “He who walks with wise men will be wise, But the companion of fools will suffer harm.”
Here’s a quick synopsis of our conversation, chose your friends wisely because they will have either a harmful or wise influence in your life – affecting your choices, preferences and values. A companion of fools will suffer harm, but the person who walks with others who are wise, will himself be wise. Let’s be sure to chose wisely who we allow to be close to us, with whom we share our heart & allow ourselves to be vulnerable 🙂
Today is my mom’s 80th bday & I’m extremely happy to see such a great outpouring of love, respect & well wishes for her. She is a remarkable woman & has touched countless numbers throughout the world.
As her daughter, I want to include a few thoughts on this milestone. Here are a few things that are deeply meaningful to me about my mom:
*she is thoroughly genuine – the same person you may hear teach the Bible at an event or on tv is the same person one-on-one.
*she doesn’t quit & she maintains her endurance, in part, by keeping her faith strong. It’s my opinion that she keeps her faith strong by memorizing books of the Bible (which she’s done for at least 35 continuous years)
*she maintains grace & poise in very difficult situations
*she is one of the best encouragers you’ll ever meet
*she deeply loves Jesus
Happy birthday Mom!!
