Got me thinking

I was talking to a good friend tonight about this and that.After some time they opened up about some family problems they are having. They went on to say the hurt they have felt because of all of this.It got me to thinking.......
We go day to day with our happy faces on and pretending all is OK.Someone asks how are you we answer, doing fine,OK, no complaints.......
I just ached for this friend and how they were hurting.They are the one who is always there and encouraging others.Being upbeat and happy.
I was happy to be able to listen and try to encourage them in their time of need.
But most of all I am happy to know I can lift up them in prayer as well.I know not everyone who reads this blog has a close walk with God and has a daily prayer time either. I am not one to preach or tell others what to do and I by no means am a perfect or near perfect christian.I struggle all the time too.But what great compfort it is to know that I can give all my troubles to the lord.He will always be there for me.
It has been a great compfort to me to also know when I asked for prayers from my blogging buddies I got it.
I know we all have struggles from time to time.We just need to be there for each other and lift each other up in prayers when needed. Be not afraid to ask,not details are needed just an I need prayers is all.
I know I will be praying for my friend who I talked to and some of my blogging friends who need encouraging words too.
Blessing to all.
I hope I did not step on any toes with this post. I just want peace on earth and everyone to be happy and enjoy life.( Do I sound like a beauty queen contestant)?

Brian, you really are a sweet man. (And sweet IS a compliment!)

Thank you for the age regression! No wonder you were awarded the Schmoozer award!

This post was very nice. I read absolutely nothing you needed to worry about or apologize for.

No, I don't think you sound like a beauty queen contestant. I think you sound like a kind loving soul. You are always so sweet and dear to everyone out there in bloggerland. I for one appreciate there is someone out there saying a prayer for me. G-d knows I could use it! Thank you for always being there. And you're right, everything isn't always "ok" so it is comforting to know there are folks out there who really care.
