The Meaning of Love in Friendship


We say, “Best friends forever!” We share friendship bands. We tug at each others clothes. We create beautiful things together; yes we share one love and real friendship.

Real friends never let go, even if they fight. They are like kids who punch and hug. They are like sisters who comb each others hair after sticking gum on it. They are like brothers who kick each other’s ass and later on give a helping hand. They are friends, who after a fight make up, forgive, and accept each other again. Real friends don’t give up on each other. Their friendship never ends. It thrives good fruits around the fence, near and even faraway.

Check these thoughts on love in friendship:

Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other’s gold. (an old song)
Let there be no malice.
Speak the truth to your friend.
Feel that which your friend cannot speak.
Accept and understand each other.
Don’t forget to admonish, for then in mistake, both will learn and get corrected.
Be generous in charity.
Don’t dig graves.
Share water and cookies.
Set each other free.

Let each other thrive like a kite flying high, but like the waves kissing down.

Truly, we are all blessed with friends. When I was a young adult and professional, I was blessed with many and I had two best friends who stayed with me against the odds. I will not name them, but their names are engraved in my heart. May they forgive my shortcoming and indifference. May they, also, know that I have never doubted their love nor betrayed, even if time had separated us; or life or death had caused us to be away from each other.

My Bible highlights remember Matthew, Chapter 18 Verse 19-20.

I also tell you this – if two of you agree down here on earth concerning anything you ask for, my father in heaven will do it for you.

For where two or three gather together because they are mine, I will be right there among them.

Love in friendship is loyalty, respect and that love looking up waiting for nothing, but God’s grace and love. It is laughing together, crying together and making things happen together. It is never afraid, nor cheating, but rejoices along with the truth.

Perhaps, best of all, the meaning of love in friendship is what the holy Bible says.

“Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me!”

How to Publish Posts that Search Engines Will Love

The Daily Post

In the world of website creation, on-page SEO is one of the most important factors (if not the most important) in helping potential visitors find your site.

On-page SEO is a term that describes the elements — both content- and code-based — that produce a page that ranks well for searches around a certain topic. Building a perfectly optimized page is challenging; overdoing it might result in penalized sites and poor rankings.

While there are countless guides out there, each with their own opinions on what an optimized page entails, there are a few important factors that practically every SEO resource agrees on — factors that come organically with good content, which search engines love. Let’s go through six of the most crucial ones.

Your Audience Comes First

Great content satisfies a need that a person visiting your site has.

The expression “Content is king” has been tossed around the search engine marketing sphere for a number of years. It’s used as…

I was a cartoonist fan! Every morning,when students and adults in the house read, and all of them finished, I ended up the newspaper master! I would spread the pages on the sofa and searched for pictures. I loved Nancy and Mutt Jeff, and the Filipino cartoonists drawings, among others. I cut quotes and collected them. In adulthood, of course, I have to collect all broadsheets and tabloids for my work. My life evolved with the newspaper. Thank God for all the newspapers!

Let Us Pray Together

Praying is communicating to an Almighty God. It is linking oneself inside the halos of holiness. It is opening the self and every heart beat in front of a Creator.

There are different ways of praying and many forms of rituals. Life must be filled by it to endure difficult times. Men are endowed with gifts from heaven, and one of them is the power of prayer. This will be a shield to fulfill one’s goal and find the meaning of his/her life.

People are God’s children. Though the different religions and races, there is a Divine Omnipotence, called God. God is one Father to His children. The children pray and live life on earth, to find joy yonder even after life.

History is composed of life and death. The memory of the dead becomes alive in the present time. Cultures are built by generations one after another in the hope of creating changes and progress. Many theories are formed of the sciences, and there’s the book we call the “Holy Bible” showing documents – how we all come to be one body in Christ. Truly, eyes see us and the big hands of God hold the world.

How do people pray?

When we can’t utter words, but find peace in our hearts – we are praying.

When tears fall, and nothing could describe it – we are praying.

When we call “My Father, my Lord, my God” – we are praying.

God is with us, any place we go, 24 hours a day. Sleeping and waking let our hearts be filled with him – that is praying.

When we do our work and serve others – we pray.

Try this prayer from the Bible:

Anima Christi (Soul of Christ)

Soul of Christ, sanctify me
Body of Christ, save me
Blood of Christ, inebriate me
Water from the side of Christ, wash me
Passion of Christ, strengthen me
O good Jesus hear me
Within Your wound, hide me
Never permit me to be separated from you
From the evil one, protect me
At the hour of death, call me
And bid me to come to you
That with your Saints
I may praise you forever.

Send O Lord, Holy Apostles
Into Your church.

It is good to wake up with a prayer and sleep with a prayer. Also, give thanks before and after meals. There is also the midday prayer and the Angelus. Some religious and faithful pray/chant eight times a day, the others maybe three times or as their hearts desire; even every hour with work (?). The monks pray as early as 3am at dawn.

Don’t worry, God will not count and it’s not how many, BUT how you pray. Are you sincere? Do you love God so much and want others to be happy and be of God?

Let us always pray together. Let us not forget each other in prayer.

Learning To Pray In Silence

Praying is an act of holiness. No matter how sinful one can be, in prayer one transforms into a positive energy that warms the earth and the human race. Prayer is a gift from God.

It does not choose. Everyone is equal. Everyone can come. It is full of power.

So you can come. You can accept God for free with your whole heart, mind and spirit. In various ways you can do it aloud or in silence. God is always listening in every way.

“For where two or three gather in my name, there I am with them.”

There are situations that wreck your heart then all of a sudden you find yourself sitting quietly, clasping your hands and bowing your head. Sometimes, you become too happy, then your blithe body looking up or down in adoration and thanks, you are praying!

The priest, nun, parents, teacher or the catechist in the community can help and inspire you to adore God, but then it is only the Holy Spirit that will show you what to do and as you learn your chants, novena or Nicene Creed, you are in pact with the Holy Ghost.

Says a priest, “The Eucharist or the Holy Mass is the highest form of prayer.”

Moreover, the rosary is a form of remembering how Jesus lived his life on earth, from birth to death, through the intercession of Mama Mary and the holy Saints and angels. For me this depicts the word Emmanuel. God is with us!

So in silence, your eyes stop blinking or they blink a lot. Something mortal inside you stops. Everything in the body meet in one glorious space of Holy grace and mercy where mind and heart meet fully focused on Him alone. In silence, when you consider yourself a sinner (trying not to sin again), when thoughts crave for the holiness and benefit of others (pray for their intentions), when you humbly admit you give nothing but yourself; you will feel God. His breath will capture every word in your heart and mind, even those you cannot speak. And though there are those, who speak in words or in tongues, there can be those who say nothing, and in awe adore God deep inside every heartbeat, every atom in the flesh, all the hands can grasp, the nothing and everything of the world and the self in one Sacred Heart. “Take me, I am yours… ”

Prayer can substitute for the word love in the Holy Bible. The Our Father is the prayer which Jesus taught (his disciples) us.

Let me share this.

Create in us, a clean heart, dear God that we may love and be happy.
Send forth thy Holy Spirit. Make us one with thy most Sacred Heart.
Gather us in your arms, please don’t be apart.
Most Sacred Heart, we love you. Dear Jesus, we trust you.
