Alone on the Bush

 Hi, Friend. I'm glad you stopped for a visit.

One lone snowball exists on my snowball bush hidden among hundreds of green leaves. Did the flower forget to bloom in the spring or has it hung there all summer and I never noticed? 

We can be so familiar with a person or flower, we really don't see them until something good or bad happens to them. Several times I have wanted to mention this topic on my blog. Today's the day.

Be encouraged to look closer at people you know.
    Do they have friends? Be one to them.
    Do they usually keep to themselves? Invite them to an event or lunch.
    Do they enjoy reading books? Give, not loan, them one of your favorites.
    Have you talked on the phone with them in recent months? Now's the time to call, emails don't count.

They might be dying for a hug.

Be alert to those acquaintances who need a real friend like you.

Join me in being a better friend to someone this week and thereafter. We might make a huge difference in their lives and their future.

This is not deep psychology, just friendly advice.

"The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart . . ." Psalm 34:18

Proverb for the Week: "As the beating of cream yields butter
                                     and striking the nose causes bleeding,
                                     so stirring up anger causes quarrels."
                                     Prov. 30:33 NLT

Love to all of you, Juanita
