True Friendship is not only measured by what a person says or does in your presence or the truth they tell when you’re present.
The true measure of a friendship happens when things are said about you when you’re not around.
Your true friend morphs into a paid attorney, putting up a strong defense for you when someone comes for you and you’re not there to defend yourself. They also hold your secrets in confidence like attorney/client privilege.
A True Friend ❣️
How do you ever know your thinking or actions are off if no one ever tells you. Sometimes we think our learned and established behavior or thought patterns are wise and correct. Truth be told, we ALL need that someone who is unbiased and cares enough to challenge our possibly wrong thinking/behavior. Woe be it unto the man who is never challenged in that manner or never challenges those close to them. ~Iron Sharpens Iron~BHicks
I saw this photo from Shawn McKenzie and loved it. I wrote some encouraging words below it for women like this. I pray it blesses you. The revelation blessed me.
If you are this, understand that every man is not looking for this. Make sure you’re ok with that fact and remember to not take a step back waiting for someone who doesn’t understand the value of this, to catch up. They just may not be in to you, or ready for you, or just not checking for you. That’s ok. If there is only one for you that means don’t gaze into the eyes of every man in the multitude wondering if he is the one. It may sound cliche but fix your eyes on GOD. If you deal in Faith you know HE will not make you ashamed, HE knows what you need, want and how to give it to you. HE is your Father. Your greatest champion who knows and calls you by name. Speak your name and who you are and what GOD has Himself said about you. It will help you to remember you’re worthy. As for me, my name is Bridgette. Though I had strayed I am called and chosen. I am waiting, I am patient, I am grateful and I Am LOVE.
Ich Liebe Dich Alle ❤️

Most of us, if honest, were once lost. Some of us still are. But honey let me tell you something. There is no truly good gain in giving goods and services away without a ring (Marriage). Now technically, there are lessons that you learn and beautiful children that result…let’s be clear. But, those same lessons were almost always preceded by a measure of pain and regret.
Those awesome children sometimes miss out on seeing a fruitful relationship between a husband and wife. This possibly can create a one sided view of relationships. Children then possibly have to deal with seeing you go through different relationships with different personalities, their temporary attachments to temporary people, seeing you hurt, seeing you hurt someone, or someone hurting them. Can you imagine. Well maybe you can because life many times is a cycle. What one does is possibly what they saw until someone in the cycle decided to change what they showed.
I know that players play…and some, both men and women, take pride in that. However, at some point, the lost…have to FIND their way home. Home to GODS good and perfect will…of not giving themselves away but allowing HIM to present you to the one HE chose for you. It’s not just for you, but the cycle…watching you.
Now I’m not an expert, but I have learned a few things… since I came back home.
