What does it mean when people say, "Follow your dreams?" I think that means to never give up on what you really what to do or be. I believe it also means that your dreams are your true calling. "What is a true calling?" That is something that you were destined to do. That thing that you can't seem to stop thinking about and that you believe you will eventually find yourself doing.
A man who has friends must show himself friendly (Proverbs 18:24). If I believe this proverb to be true, then I must ask myself the question, "Am I showing myself friendly?" The ability to be friendly is in our sphere of control, and it will have a direct impact on our sphere of influence. The ability for others to approach us can and will impact our relationships. Because of this, it is necessary that we address the subject of showing ourselves friendly.

Today was another day of focusing on what's most important in my life. I do this so often to reflect on the beautiful things around me that I may get to busy throughout my week to notice. For instance, sometimes I forget how wonderful my family is and how patient they are with me. I am a very busy person sometimes with all of my writing and working that there are times when I have to just pause and thank God for all of my wonderful blessings.
Spring is in the air, which also means that the marriage season is upon us. Marriage should be honored by all (Hebrews 13:4). This means that marriage is an honorable estate and should be welcomed and celebrated with love and admiration as its corner stone. "And this provides a good picture of how each husband is to treat his wife, loving himself in loving her, and how each wife is to honor her husband" (Ephesians 5:33 MSG). Everyone should honor and respect the institution of marriage.
