Susie, what a lovely quote. Thoreau had some good ones. I don’t throw the word friend around lightly. We have many acquaintances. We’re very lucky when some of them become friends. I’m very, very proud to count you among those. Thank you.
Thanks, squirl! Same backatcha And again, this red tree does my heart good. We finally got a little color here, but I saw nothing like what you all had.
william, yes! Oh, you read it! That makes me happy. The verses following are some of the most difficult, and to me and my theology, the most important, in the Christian life: v. 21: “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.”
sassyfemme, wow, since kindergarten. That’s wonderful. My longest are since high school.
ssnick, well, Squirl’s pix are always breathtaking. These scriptures are ALWAYS challenging, at least to me. Being friendly to those who behave like enemies is an unnatural thing to do. Whatever is going on, I hope you come out the other side of it soon.
kranki, so true. Oh, and I crushed Biscuit’s head today in your (and Yoshi’s) honor
That is a truly awesome picture. Squirl, thanks for sharing it with Susie, who shared it with all of us.
As usual a wonderful Sunday quote and scripture verse choice. I totally agree about it being very unnatural and contary to our human nature. That makes it a challenge for all. To be like Christ and show love to those who only show hatred to us, no easy task.
