Friends are the chocolate topping in the milk shake of life.
Friendship is like cheese; it gets better as it grows older.
A faithful friend is the milk of life.
Friends are chocolate drops that never melt
Friends are the cheese cubes in the salad bowl of life.

Don't go for looks; they can deceive.
Don't go for wealth; even that fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile,
Because it takes only a smile
To make a dark day seem bright.
Find the one that makes your heart smile.
For this new morning and its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For every gift His goodness sends
We thank you, gracious Lord.
Amen
Give thanks to the Father,
who has qualified you to share in the
inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light.
Colossians 1:12

we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words,
but to live by them."

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord,
continue to live in him,
rooted and built up in him,
strengthened in the faith as you were taught,
and overflowing with thankfulness.

When you arise in the morning,
give thanks for the morning light,

If you see no reason for giving thanks,
the fault lies with yourself.

being watchful and thankful.
