Ed's Corner

I saw this saying in something a while back and thought of it today when I was working on my newsletter article. It goes like this:  Old friends are like Gold! New Friends are like Diamonds. If you get a Diamond, don't forget the Gold! Because to hold a Diamond, you need a base of Gold!

 

As our kids get ready to start school, I thought this might be something we would want to pass along if they are old enough to understand. Each year usually brings a new kid or two to the classroom. As we go off to college there will be lots of new kids. Even when we as adults move to a new neighborhood or change jobs... sometimes even within the same business; there are opportunities to make new friends.

 

Wasn't it Will Rogers that said: a stranger is just a friend I haven't met yet! That's something to think about....for all of us. Hope all of you....teachers, parents, kids.....and all the rest of us...have a great school year.

 

Hope to see you in the pews on Sundays this fall.....

 

Ed
