Johnson: Are you planting seeds of friendship?

My friend, what are you planting every day? Are you planting seeds of friendship? If you want friends, be one. I have driven to Kentucky, Alabama and Florida for funerals. Be there for your friends. You want to be blessed in your  finances, then sow the right way financially and good things will happen. Do you go out of your way to sow seeds of happiness?

Sometimes when we have a closing where nothing goes  right, I may stop and get something really good to eat and take to the ladies at the lawyer’s office that did  the paperwork sometimes five times. Do you plant your seeds with the good Lord each day, if not, why?  We say the blessing at the office or at the steakhouse before each meal. One bank president’s eyes got big years ago when I did that. It did not bother me, but weeks later that person called me and asked could I pray for his mom that was really sick and of course I did. Again, my question is, “What are you planting today?”

I have a grandson that scored three touchdowns the other day ,and he likes to shoot guns. When he comes next time, I already bought a brick of 22 and just he and I will spend two hours at the gun range.

I bet I will have the most fun. Plan your time and your future smiles, and they will happen. My special secret is thank God for all your blessings.
