A Family Affair

Some 18 years ago I met some people who would become “forever friends”. I know this because they told me so. Sadly, at the time of, I admit that I wasn’t a believer of the term.

ECCLESIASTES‬ ‭4:9-10‬ ‭AMP‬‬ “Two are better than one because they have a more satisfying return for their labor; for if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion.

Walking Out, Taking Thoughts Captive
