Quote for 11/07/2021

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.    Proverbs 17:17


Have you heard of Beauty Beyond Bones?  She is a blogger who is one of the top bloggers in the world on eating disorders.  She suffered from near-fatal anorexia but found her salvation and redemption through God’s power.

She writes of how she came to despise herself and did her best to manipulate and drive away family and friends.  She was by and large successful.

When she finally emerged from her disease, a few friends remained…friends such as Proverbs describes today.  They were able to look past her behavior and see a friend in pain.  They did not desert her.

Neither did her family, with siblings flying in from across the country to help with an intervention to get her into rehab.

Her true friends remained.  Her brothers did not fail her!

What sort of friends do you have?  What kind of a friend are you?  With God’s strength fueling us, we can be the friends and siblings of Proverbs.

  1. Caralyn is one of my “must read” bloggers every week. Her story is nothing short of a miracle, and she gives God the credit for bringing her back from the brink. Beauty Beyond Bones also has lots of engaging followers, like you and me! In fact, it was on BBB that I first read your insightful comments, Jeff, and started following you. And, though our relationship has only developed over the internet and telephone, I am your “Proverbs” friend. Blessings!

Your ideas are important too!
