Susie, what a lovely quote. Thoreau had some good ones. I don't throw the word friend around lightly. We have many acquaintances. We're very lucky when some of them become friends. I'm very, very proud to count you among those. Thank you.

Very appropriate passage this week." brotherly love", "Practice Hospitality."

Have a good Sunday

 
Blogger Susie said...

Thanks, squirl! Same backatcha ;) And again, this red tree does my heart good. We finally got a little color here, but I saw nothing like what you all had.

william, yes! Oh, you read it! That makes me happy. The verses following are some of the most difficult, and to me and my theology, the most important, in the Christian life: v. 21: "Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."

Very nice passage. And the verse on evil that you put in the comments- quite appropriate.

And, what Squirl said. Ditto.

There's no substitute for a good friend. My dearest is one that I've had for over 34 years, we met in Kindergarten!

A breathtaking picture enhanced by admirable but for me at the moment bittersweet and challenging words.

Really true friends are rare and to be cherished. Great quote!

sassyfemme, wow, since kindergarten. That's wonderful. My longest are since high school.

ssnick, well, Squirl's pix are always breathtaking. These scriptures are ALWAYS challenging, at least to me. Being friendly to those who behave like enemies is an unnatural thing to do. Whatever is going on, I hope you come out the other side of it soon.

kranki, so true. Oh, and I crushed Biscuit's head today in your (and Yoshi's) honor ;)

Nice, Susie - I can't even think of anything smartass to say. See what you've done? ;)

That is a truly awesome picture. Squirl, thanks for sharing it with Susie, who shared it with all of us.

As usual a wonderful Sunday quote and scripture verse choice. I totally agree about it being very unnatural and contary to our human nature. That makes it a challenge for all. To be like Christ and show love to those who only show hatred to us, no easy task.

Wow...awesome pic...awesome quote!

OH wow...that tree reminds me of one that used to sit on my old college campus when I was a student. So beautiful. They cut it down a few years ago for a new building :(

Did you photoshop that sucker even more red?

 
Blogger Susie said...

bucky, uhohnowlook what I've done. I must find a way to remedy this situation. I shall not be known forever more in blogworld as the one who rendered BFE smartassless :(

momo, yep, that's it.

lilsis, nice pic, but I miss the chic! Thank you, and happy Thanksgiving to you :)

andrea, for shame! Who could cut down a tree like that?

kristine, I didn't do a thing; I don't think Squirl did, either. Flaming, isn't it?

 
Blogger Amy said...

Man, that Squirl can take a picture.
