:I seem to be seeing a lot of people around, myself included, who are feeling very negative today, about themselves, mainly, but also about life in general. This blows. Let's knock this off! I say, let's all go out on a brain weasel stomping mission. Go find someone and give them a compliment. Tell them you love them. Send them an e-card or an internet picture. Tell them a joke. Whatever, just let people you love know you're thinking of them. What does it hurt to say something to make people feel better?
Go! I send you out on your mission!
Let me add one request. I am not sending this out as a way of fishing for sympathy. I want you to reach out to someone who is not expecting it. I want my friends (or the friends of my friends) to be surprised by joy. They deserve it.
PRAYER FOR MY FRIENDS
Jeff Barbra / Sarah Pirkle
I'm taking a moment to pray for my friends,
A handful of people on whom I depend.
Our pathways are different, but I love them no less;
I’m hoping their sorrows will mend –
Tonight I pray for my friends.
When I don't know the answers and search for the truth,
And hope that my judgment will carry me through,
I'm so grateful for the people I have in my life –
They help me to do what is right,
They help me to do what is right.
There are people I've loved that I've lost along the way –
We’ve drifted apart or they've been called away.
I hold them so close in my heart here tonight –
They're dear to my heart for all time,
They're dear to my heart for all time.
