    Always be a friend to God, and God will be a friend back to you and help you make lemonade even when it seems like life is serving you nothing but lemons. There is no better friend to have than God. How does one be a friend to a symbol of good that one can not touch, see, smell or talk to? All we know about God that is thoroughly documented in the book of Genesis is that He made everything in six days and He then rested on the seventh day. One way for us to be God's friend and to honor and respect God is to copy what God did by working hard for six days by helping God create a better world and then resting ourselves on the final seventh day for a period of not less than 24 hours. Resting means the absence of work. We all need a day off from the weekly grind. To satisfy the minimum spiritual/religious/legal definition of rest consider the following: Rest means to completely cease from all monetary transactions (Stop buying groceries and things!), to stop gossiping about those around you (Be quiet for heavens sake!), to stop traveling to places outside the city in which you live (Put a damper on your travel!), and to stay away from public events such as live concerts (Rest your ears as well!). When you rest for twenty four hours or more following six days of hard work trying to make the world a better place to live, then God will support you and everything you do in life as He feels that you are on his side and are truly trying to be His friend. God will then help you find purpose and success in life, and He will even help you find a natural, wholesome sweetner for your lemonade recipe even when it seems like life is serving you nothing but lemons.
