Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

A Mother’s Day Reflection – I Briefly Thought About How:


I briefly thought about how:

1. My natural mother is deceased. 

2. Both of my grandmothers are deceased.

3. Both of my God-mothers are deceased. 

The Lord blessed me to enjoy them prior to this day and time. And I am thankful and grateful for all of them. At this stage of my life,  I don’t have a “mother” or a “mother-figure” in my life, to call my own, or to tell Happy Mother’s Day to. Isn’t that something?! Cherish your Mothers! Happy Mother’s Day!

Until Next Time,

Do You Call Everyone You Know ( Know Of) A Friend?


Do you call everyone you know (know of) a friend? Do you know the difference between an acquaintance, associate, and friend?

How often have we said out of acknowledging that we know someone, “that’s my friend.” when really we should say, “I know who that person is, or I’ve met that person before, or we went to the same school, etc., Friend has a much deeper meaning:

friend
frend/

noun
plural noun: friends; plural noun:

1. a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations. – Google Web Dictionary

Keywords: has a “bond” of “mutual” “affection”.

That means friends have a “bond” of “mutual” “affection”. Friends hold in common;have affection for each other;toward each other.

How about acquaintance?

ac·quaint·ance
əˈkwāntəns/

noun

2. a person one knows slightly, but who is not a close friend.
“a wide circle of friends and acquaintances”
synonyms: contact, associate, ally, connection, colleague
“a business acquaintance –  Google Web Dictionary

Lastly, associate:

as·so·ci·ate

noun
əˈsōSHēət/

1. a partner or colleague in business or at work.
“he arranged for a close associate to take control of the institute”
synonyms: partner, colleague, coworker, workmate, comrade, ally, affiliate, confederate; More

1. a person with limited or subordinate membership in an organization.

adjective
əˈsōSHēət/

1. joined or connected with an organization or business.
“an associate company”

In reality people mistakenly use recognition or acknowledging of a person as the criteria of calling them “friend” or “my friend”.  When really what should be stated is, they are an acquaintance or an associate. Or someone I met at…., or just acknowledge how you really know the person.

That’s something worth considering!
