when days are dark........are few!

One might probably be wondering why on earth this guy (the writer) will say something like this. Please take a deep breath and calm yourself down. I’m about to share with you the reaction that I got when days were dark in my life. I used to have many friends; rich, poor, classy and the ‘neutral’ you name them . But my friend, listen carefully to what I’m about to share with you.I was doing grade 8. We (together with my friends) used to go and hang around in the bushes looking after cows. One day I got stuck in the river bed, because it was rainy season. What happens then must be the only question that is roaming around your mind right now I guess! Yes stuck in the river bed, I could even imagine it now as I’m telling you this my friend. Every one of them and I mean all of them were looking at me and laughing. I tried to show them how much it was hurting in that muddy place, but none of them took me seriously.Next to that river bed was the hole, where a legavaan (creature looks like crocodile) used to stay. Imagine it now my friend stuck in that hole and no one sees what you see in the hole. What do you do then my friend? I know it’s my duty to let you know what I did. Unfortunately I couldn’t help myself. It was deep. I had to get someone who will pull me out of the hole coz it was deep. Guess what happened to my so called “favourite friends”, they eventually ran and they left me there, inside the hole. If it was not for the messiah who was passing by, you or should I say yourself would not be reading about something like this.

Aah jeff, well after this week you will as Johnny walker always says, "never walk alone". You have made some great people in this programme, people who without a doubt will not leave you stuck in the mud or even allow you to "shoot me now".

I wish you all the best and i will see you on the flip side of exams.

"Me myself" I wouldn't know what I would do if I was there. Like Nadi said though, you've got us now so take it easy and stay away from those rivers.

Jeff, it is in those tough moments where one realises that they stand alone in the world and the only one standing by your side is the gracious and merciful Jesus who never ceases to come to help and bring us above those raging waters there is a beautiful song that as you wrote this it made my heart relax and know the Lord knows our hearts desires.

Jeff your story just proves that there is a living God indeed. It's through the Grace of God that you had the opportunity to share this story with me. on behalf of your friends, never trust any of your 'friends' in life.I mean NOT ANY except us the FJPs-09

Me myself I was going to do one thing my friend SHOOT THEM ONCE. But you know what they say ( If doesn't kill you it makes you stronger) maybe that is why you are here today.

Mr. Crocodile Dundee, I hope you will be OK with the dark days.
Here's hoping that things look up for all of us.
We should always look at "problems" as "challenges" to be overcome.
We should also be prepared to put in some time; to work hard. And to pray (to God; god; Allah; Buddha; or whoever...)

Don't forget to live; and to love...

Hard luck Jeff but as your new neutral friend I would never leave you in the mud. Is the story true though?

Amen to that Sim. Jeff, that must have been a scary moment. We are so glad that you were saved from the muddy waters and look how far you've come since then!

Jeff it is quite difficult to chose friends who will be with you through good times as well as in bad times. It has had an impact on you, but stay positive and do not dwell on the past, you should try to move on so you can feel much better about yourself.
