when people say, "oh, so you're religious?" As if it's a bad thing? But I respond with, "I don't like it said that way.I have faith in God. I believe Jesus died for me." Anyone can profess to have a religion, not everyone has a relationship.
True friendships become even stronger in the hard times. I'm finding I have some amazing friends that I can count on through thick and thin.the few that fall away never really were my true friend to begin with. True colors shine through!
