Good friends, good church, good grief!

Everybody has a bad day every once in a while. Sometimes that day can stretch into weeks or months and we've all been there. Well, anybody with teenagers has probably been there. This week has been pretty good. Last week was one of the worst I've ever had. Several times this week I've wondered what people do that don't have Jesus in their lives and don't have Christian friends and a good church to come beside them and hold them up. Where do people go when they need help and advice and wisdom? Do you have friends that would pray for you in the middle of the night? Do you have friends that will come to your house just to sit with you or help you do things that you could do by yourself but don't want to? I do. I have friends like that. I have friends that take time out of their busy, stressful day to help me, council me, or just text me to let me know they were praying for me. All I can say is, thank you. Thank you so much!

Job's friends were fine as long as they shut up. Once they started talking, things went downhill fast.

I'd talk teenage issues if you'd like. You know that insanity is hereditary -- we get it from our kids.

Agreed. Last week was not one of my best, either. But this one I had three occasions where old friends called or emailed and suggested we get together.

It's good to have the support of friends.
