Sometimes you just need extra pairs of eyes on your moral compass.  To catch little (or big) jogs off course that you might not notice yourself, or that you might try to rationalize away.  To grab your steering wheel when necessary.  That’s when it is great to have loving but honest friends.

I have to say, though, they are getting me pretty well-trained when it comes to keeping an eye on myself!  While I know that they love me flaws and all, they just make me want to be a better person!

So to all my friends, near and far, new and old, future too:  This is just to say that I love you, I am grateful for you, and I hold you in my prayers always.  May the Lord bless you and be with you always!
