Keeping it in Perspective

I love my friends. . . for many, many reasons. One reason in particular that I love them is that they help me keep things in perspective. I have the personality that given one bit of information, I tend to jump to "worst case scenario". Partly, I do that because if I can 'handle' "worst case scenario", then anything else will be OK. Partly, I just "go there".

My friends remind me to stay in the now and to have faith. They remind me of Matthew 6:34 "So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own" (NASV). They remind me of a favorite quote "If you pray, why worry. If you worry, why pray?"

Which is another reason I so love my friends. They pray with me and they pray for me.

I have been blessed with many wonderful, wonderful friends.

Thank You, God!
