optimistic enthusiasm that overcomes negativity and inconvenience to make it

through to the end. (10,000 Reasons Overflow)

Dani and I were talking about "friends" and he was telling us stories of younger escapades, I was not part of these, I had moved away by then. Funny, none of these stories impress us, look were they got him?

I love Dani, even in prison with a sentence of letters not numbers, he still is full of energy, and full of friendship. Life is not as complicated for him. He knows who his true friends are because they are still by his side. I am thankful to be one of them.

People are surprised that to find out that I am friends with someone in prison. Apparantly I don't look like someone who hangs out with prisioners. Dani has friends in prison who have stories that could make your hair with curl or straighten. He has stories himself that would do the same. I look past that because I know I have done things that I am none to proud of, and afterall, a sin is a sin, right? He's surprised, maybe more like disappointed that more people haven't stuck by him, I told him "it's easy to be friends with someone who everything is great for, true friends see you through it all".

Proverbs 17:17 A friend loves at all times

Nothing worse then a "fair weather friend". You've proven your much more then that. Dani and others are blessed to have you.

Glad you visited and remained his friend. Jesus has lots to say about visiting prisoners.

i imagine that someone who visits and cares about a friend in lock-up probably looks a lot like Jesus. :)
i also think its safe to assume that the only difference between a lot of prisoners and free folk is the fact that they got caught!
