Iron

I have a friend. Let's call him....Ken.

Ken is going "under the knife" soon and I thought I would share a verse that has been rolling around in my head (which I don't believe is coincidence by the way).

"As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." Proverbs 27:17

If I could chose a friend for my own daughter, I would choose someone just like my friend Ken: Someone who loves you as you are; someone who is genuinely interested in what you think; someone who would never speak ill of you to others; someone who makes you better for having known them; a true friend.

I, as a father would choose just that kind of friend for my daughter.

I'm glad God, my Father, choose someone just like that for me.

And, God may not "move the chess pieces," as my friend Ken likes to say, but He is powerful enough to get us to move them where they need to go, when we are listening.

  1. Does this mean I get to get a suit of Iron Man armor? Cause that would be SO freakin SWEET!!!

    So if I croak tomorrow because of a botched anesthesia thing, just so you know, you and your sister both would go right on the center shelf in the Action Figure display of Life.

    I'd give you a Dark Tower accessory, no problem
