I have been reading several posts today and I was thinking how some people really need to hear this. I believe it was brought to me as I needed to hear it and I bring it to you so you can hear it. Thank You

The Secret to Making (and Keeping!) Friends
Friends. Where would we be without them? But making—and keeping—friends is not always easy. The Apostle Paul has some solid advice on how to do just that. It is found in Romans, Chapter 12. This is how that passage reads as translated by Eugene H. Peterson in The Message:
“Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Let’s just go ahead and be what we were made to be, without enviously or pridefully comparing ourselves with each other, or trying to be something we aren’t. If you help, just help, don’t take over. If you give encouraging guidance, be careful that you don’t get bossy; if you’re put in charge, don’t manipulate; if you’re called to give aid to people in distress, keep your eyes open and be quick to respond; if you work with the disadvantaged, don’t get irritated with them or depressed by them. Keep a smile on your face.
Love from the center of who you are—don’t fake it. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle. Laugh with your happy friends when they’re happy; share tears when they’re down. Get along with each other; don’t be stuck up. Make friends with nobodies; don’t be the great somebody.
Don’t hit back; discover beauty in everyone. Don’t insist on getting even; that’s not for you to do. ‘I’ll do the judging,’ says God. ‘I’ll take care of it.’”
Think about your own life. How can you apply the ideas in this Biblical passage so that you are a better person, a better friend?
Thank You Mr Peterson and Apostle Paul...a few of you who have pawmailed me should stand tall.. Prince,
Leave it in Gods hands he sees.

I want to take a minute to Thank everyfur for the prayers you are saying for our cousin Rusty. I have no news yet Mom never called to ask Aunt Melissa how he was doing. I guess she feels no news is good news. Please keep the prayers coming . We love all of you and I am sure as soon as Uncle Jim and Aunt Melissa can they will update Mom.
God Bless everyfur and Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Your the best.
Love Prince, and Snick,

With another message this morning in my pawmail box about The Island I feel the best way to reach all the furs who cared and worked to make it a great place I would write here.
After much thought and talking with Laci we decided to close the club. Our Moms who played a big part in helping us run it are too busy and do not have the time to run it. I sent out several pawmails to members letting them know we were closing but I guess some didn't get everyfur. For this I am sorry. I enjoyed having the Island and we had lots of fun there. We gave it a try and we saw how much time it takes to run a club. Thank you everyfur who came and played with us. We made some wonderful friends who we plan on keeping a long time.
We will see you around and have even offered to help in some of our clubs we like to play in. So you have not seen the last of us.
On a happier note..fur those who continue to write me about my dad. Today he was released from PT. No more OT or PT and he will continue to get better. Again Thank you fur all the prayers and cards, and gifts on our pages. We had a whole lot easier time of getting thur it having you there. Thank You.
Woof Prince and Snickers,
( and Mommy Donna)
