“Father God, thank You for allowing us to forge friendships. Help us keep friends close as we forge them with Your Love as build. Our friends are not perfect, nor are we. The Only True Perfection is found in Your Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ, ‘Be My Cleanse.’ Thank You, Father God, for being a friend to Your Son so that through Him, we can keep clean the slate of being our ‘brother’s keeper.’ And thank You that we can forge friendships with BOTH humans AND nonhuman animals, as this picture shows. If Your nonhuman animals can forge friendships as an unlikely ‘fair/fare pair,’ then we need to take this lesson from them (‘but ask the animals, and they will teach you’ [Job 12:7]). I pray all of this in the Wonderful and Precious Name of our One True and Perfect Friend, Jesus Christ. This prayer is answered by my faith and my belief. Please help me, Father God, where my faith and my belief are lacking. Amen.”
(God’s Sonnet by Timothy J. Verret; “it’s how I cope to hope in forging friendships through my One True and Perfect Friend, Jesus Christ, this daily leavened [Jesus is our Brother’s Keeper!] bread.”)
You say you have friends but are you forging?
Are you constructing them with love as build?
Or are you tearing down ’cause you’re gorging
on their imperfections that’s your same skilled?
I forge friendships with “do they even care?”
Their care is there; my care for me is rare.
They can only build me up if I’m fair.
Friendships are a “flight plane,” BOTH with airfare.
“Forge your friendships with Me as your Create,”
says Jesus. “My Father and I are friends.
He made Me and you to keep clean the slate.
‘I am my brother’s keeper.’ Be My Cleanse!”
Welcome aboard to friendships with these tips:
Keep friends close as we are forging friendships.
