Prodigal: Hi, I am glad we get to spend time together.
Me: Me too.
This is from the book Abraham: One Nomad’s Amazing Journey of Faith by Charles Swindoll
Each morning you wake up with a fresh opportunity to live that day well, to see your next twenty-four hours as a series of choices. The Lord has granted you a genuine stake in what the day holds. Choose a positive attitude. Choose to seek out and focus on the good things. Choose to face your opportunities with eager anticipation. Choose to set aside your own expectations, and then embrace what God chooses to do. Choose to live in a constant state of surprise by laying aside your will and letting the Lord’s will unfold.
Choose your friends well. Be kind to everyone, but distance yourself from negative people, or you will become like them. If they’re selfish, you, too, will become self-serving. If their world revolves around themselves, you, too, will become narcissistic, cynical, and bitter.
In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
