You’ll know that you miss someone very much when every time you think of that person, your heart breaks into pieces.

A great friend is someone who makes your problems their problems, just so you don’t have to go through them alone
Dear Father, open our eyes to the needs of the people in the world. Show us how we can touch them with the time, talent, and treasure you have given us.
In Jesus’ Name
In reply Jesus said: “A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him.
We might think we love God and are concerned about others, but too often our lives are dominated by our schedules. We often are too busy to notice the needs all around us or to be used by God. Ask God to open your eyes to the needs of people in your life. Don’t pass them by. Be ready to pray, to help, to give, and to demonstrate the love of God.
Love does not begin and end the way we seem to think it does. Love is a battle, a war, and a growing up.
You’ve got to get up every morning with determination if you’re going to go to bed with satisfaction.
Dear Father, we receive your truth and your promises. We ask that you ignite our hearts with your holy spirit so that we can pursue your perfect plan for our lives. Make our thoughts and words agreeable to your will.
