Screaming From My Bandwagon...

 
Living From Glory To Glory Blog

Here is my bandwagon of friends in my twenties;
We were all different and came in many shapes and sizes.
We all had a ton of energy and ideas to live out!
We were young...

This bandwagon was also the place where I knew everything;
And I needed no one to tell me anything!
We were taking our free ride.



Now, After getting a bit older and getting married;
My bandwagon got smaller;
These few friends on my wagon;
We're changing;
They we conservative, and voted and loved the Lord
We wanted our marriages to last!
We wanted our children to have a safe environment!
Not like the one where so many came and went;
And they believed many things...




Now, Here I am today!
I no longer need a bandwagon or a megaphone!
I just need a few people to give me wise counsel!
A few that stick with me through thick and thin!
A few that can be trusted!
Some that will take wise counsel from me!

I have said this once and I will say it again
If you can not take wise counsel
Or take constructive criticism
We will ride alone on a bandwagon...

So the moral of my story is this;
Better to have a few well trusted, honest friends on my flatbed;
Going places that matter and choosing my battles wisely!

Good Day!

Trusted friends are worth more than people you cannot rely on.

What a cute way to share an amazing parable in life! Isn't it amazing how our perspective changes as we age, from the lessons we've learned. Always enjoy your posts dear Roxie, you are such a blessing to "blogland" with your heartfelt posts reaching out to women to encourage, uplift and draw us closer to the Lord. May the Lord bless you in a special way today :)

You are one of my honest, trustworthy friends. Even if we never get to see each other, you are in my heart.

Love seeing the "friends" on your bandwagon. Yes, sometimes, we just need to get off that bandwagon with a few close, trusted friends.

My daddy used to say that he could count on one hand the number of true friends he had. I wonder if I can count that many. Yes, I get lonely, but it doesn't matter as much anymore. I have my family and a few prayer partners. Pray that God will give me a church home. Since our move, we are still drifting from one place to another. Just haven't found a fit.
