We Are Fighting Back - Day 59

True Friends Stand With You

Thursday, January 9, 2020

Today is Day 59. It has been said that if a man can count on one hand the number of friends he has at the end of his life, he has lived a blessed life. Our family feels so blessed for all the friends who are filling our hands today. A bowl of warm lentils, a loaf of banana bread, a prayer for God to be with us, a phone and email hug, contacts and meetings with public officials on our behalf, letters asking for others to help stop this attack, so many acts of kindness and support. Yes, our family has been hurt deeply by betrayal, corruption, and unchecked tyranny; but God is using this situation to remind us what a value true friends are. True friends stand with you even when it is cold, wet, snowy, and unpopular. True friends remain by your side even when it costs them or puts them and their personal interests at risk. True friends believe you are who they know you to be even when those around you are spreading lies and making false claims. We are thankful for every one of our true friends and we pray God will bless each of you with handfuls of true friends to be there in your hours of need. When it happened to us, our true friends chose to stand with us and those who were pretenders were quickly exposed. What has happened to us can and may happen to you one day as it has happened to us and others. Who will stand with you when it does?

Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up.
Ecclesiastes 4:9, 10
