Periscope

I wish I had a periscope in the morning when I am ready to jump up from the back bench seat where I sleep and run up to the front seat to drive away.  I would use the periscope to survey the area and make sure no one was around to see me do that.  Sometimes I lay on the bench seat for a looong time because I’m afraid when I pop my head up someone will see me.

I wish I had a special scope that would show me just how to be a good friend to someone. I want to learn how to say the right things that would be helpful to them and not make them mad.  I get in trouble sometimes because some of my friends just want a listener.  I can listen but if I see my friend going down a bad path, I try to warn them.  Some people don’t like that but what kind of friend would I be if I just let my friends run off a cliff without warning them about it?

I had a friend like that in the past…she didn’t like what I said to her (I wasn’t mean or anything)…we parted ways because of this.  She move to another area and whenever I thought of her, I prayed for her.  Soon she met some people who could help her in the way she needed to be helped.  I’m so grateful for that.  I’m also grateful that we are friends again.

God please help me to be the best kind of friend.

    You can easily build a periscope: http://www.exploratorium.edu/science_explorer/periscope.html

    Can’t help you with the other scope, though. Let us know if you ever find one of them.

    A mirror on a stick would work as a periscope.

      I might try that. B’s idea is good to but I’m afraid a periscope like that would get crushed easily in my crowded quarters.
