The Road to Losing Friends

Have you ever changed something in your life and your friends or family have said, “I don’t even know who you are any more” or, “you are not the same person you were when I met you”? There are going to be times in our lives when we are transformed by resurrection from our old ways, attitudes, thinking, feeling and way of being.
