Everyone needs at least these 3 "F"s in life

Did you say "I reject that when you say this" when you saw the title? Careful what you reject...read before you reject.

I understand why you'd say that though. If a child or any adult comes and says to me:
"I got 3 Fs" - the first thing I'd say is "And you're proud of that?"
Too many times we are stereotyped unconsciously...

There are 3 Fs every Christian (in fact, everyone) should have, cherish and preserve:

Faith in God

Faith is putting all your eggs in God's basket,
then counting your blessings before they hatch. ~Ramona C. Carroll

To accept on faith is the basic requirement for getting on with life. ~ Robert Brault

Faith enables persons to be persons because it lets God be God. ~Carter Lindberg

Feed your faith and your fears will starve to death. ~Author Unknown

Faith makes things possible, not easy. ~Author Unknown As you know, with God nothing shall be impossible and with Him all things are possible. (Mark 10:27 para)

Life without faith in something is too narrow a space to live. ~George Lancaster Spalding


Family

When you look at your life, the greatest happinesses are family happinesses.
~Joyce Brothers

You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you, as you are to them. ~Desmond Tutu

In every conceivable manner, the family is link to our past, bridge to our future. ~Alex Haley

To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there. ~Barbara Bush

Family is the most important thing on earth.
~Princess Diana

Friends and family can set us right. And help guide us back to the light. ~Sera Christann


And the last "F" is...

Friends

Life is partly what we make it, and partly what it is made by the friends we choose. ~Tennessee Williams

A friend is a hand that is always holding yours, no matter how close or far apart you may be. A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care. A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart. ~Collin McCarty

A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down. ~Arnold H. Glasow

A real friend is one who walks in when the rest of the world walk out. ~Walter Winchell

A friend is someone who knows who you are, understands where you have been, accepts what you become, and still gently invites you to grow.
~William Shakespeare


The best part of these 3 "F"s is that they are all intertwined - if you start with Faith in God. You gain a new family in addition to your natural family and true friends come as a bonus.
