I was just thinking about something that my minister preached about today. Basically, he was talking about how we know how our enemy feel about us, they will tell you the truth, whether you want to hear it or not. However there are the people we call friends, they will never tell you the truth. They say whatever they think you want to hear in order to please you.
The thing about it is that certain true may be what you need to hear, or want to hear. How many times have you ask a friend something and they never told you the truth, but they will go behind your back and talk about it. You know they talked about because it always comes back later. Anyway, the sermon was about the betrayal of Jesus by a person he called a friend.
Does that apply to the people we call friends? On Housewives of Atlanta, Phaedra considers herself a good Christian. However she felt disappointed that her friend Kandi back away from her during the time she really needed a friend the most. Then that mentioned it to other friends. It get back to Kandi, who said she did not know Phaedra and her had any problems with their friendship. It is sad that even the men back up Apollo more than Kandi did Phaedra. These are people living there real lives in front of the camera.
Two things about it, everyone was watching this real life disaster unfold, air or not aired a friend would have been there. Unfortunately on television, I don’t even remember Kandi being there once. She said she was having problems of her own, really! Her husband was going to Phaedra husband was going to prison, and it was his intent to cause as much hell for her before going. A friend would have known, so when Apollo said Phaedra was cheating; she could have come to her defend. No way would I have let my husband say something about my friend like that, and not call her to warn her, before the enemy Kanya used it as the luncheon. The situation was messed up.
Just like the story of the Emperor New Clothes, everyone knew he was not wearing clothing. They smiled and agreed with him that his new clothes were great. He trusted them, but it took an unknown child to tell him the truth.
Do you have any true friends who will tell you the truth, before you are embarrassed?
Don’t you wish you had a magical wand so that you could get all the things you want done with one wave. Like the clock changing to five p.m. the moment you came into work. Of course if we had a magical wand we would love to have it be a payday everyday or have a little unexpected added to our check. That would make it a great Friday.
Well, it is still Friday!

Pretty so, it is going to be graduation time for a lot of people. The joy you get from not walking down the line, but from something you went through and completed.
This is my last week for two class, Web Design and Business Planning. You will never complete a class without learning something. This week however, I am expected to design a website and present a business plan. I know my instructors will be looking forward to what I come up with considering most of the time I was lost in the class. I love a challenge, this is going to be good.
We all get many opportunities in life. It is truly about doing something for yourself.
WHO WANTS SUCCESS?
This morning at the 6:30 am meeting, I was reviewing the plan for magazine to make 200k a year. It was the same plan that I presented last night to my teacher. He is great and owns a business. He looked at me kind of funny, why I am not sure. One the class is called business planning, who is trying to aim small? Two why be the boss and make minimum wage.
Of course, in my meeting this morning with (you know who), the person who always has something to say. It was suggested that I needed to break down my time a LOT more. Apparently in my 12 to 16 hours work days I am not getting enough done.
If it is your plan to make think big, don’t think small.
I had been thinking about taking my car to the shop because it had been driving badly. I held out thinking I just pull a lot in servicing a few months before and did not want to think about another big expense. So when someone brought it to my attention that one of the tires was going bad I knew I was going to have to make that trip to the shop. I gather up as much money as I could, and check around on cost before taking the car to the shop.
It was a surprise to me, after they replaced the one tire, the car drives prefect again. We do that with a lot of things in life, including when we say we have faith in God.
We say we have faith, but are too afraid, to let him handle problems. Not realize that he is there for a reason, to help us. I was driving all around on a bad tire thinking; about it, God protected me while I was out late, driving alone. Then he allowed the amount to be just right, so that I could take care of it. It was a good day, because he was truly there for me, as he has been many times before.
Ambition and drive it start at a young age. I grow up in a house fairly large household with lots of brothers and sisters. I remember when I was young, every child in my family would participate in sports. What one did the others followed through school? We never consider ourselves better than the others, and we did not always win. We all were very good in sport and won many awards, mainly because we would practice together and work hard.
Now that I am older, as I go through life, I still have that ambition and drive. If you want to succeed you have to be willing to go the distance, and finish the race when or lose.
You are never really a loser it you try.
Ambition or drive that both can help you go a long way.
