I’m so thankful for the friends I have that walk beside me through life. It sure does make a difference and there are only a handful of “real” ones. This quote on being a good friend was perfect for this shot I captured of Graham and his friends. My prayer is that Graham will find a few close friends of substance that will be there for him for many years. I hope he is a great friend to all. Every morning we say these few things together before he heads out of the car for school: “Today I’m going to be a helper and let others see Jesus through me.” We’ve also been practicing a Bible verse thanks to a wonderful suggestion from one of my close friends. Can you guess which one?
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
How do you encourage your children to be good friends? My belief is that they will see how you treat others and model that behavior. May we constantly strive to be that example for our kids.
