When I have been ' exercising or working in the yard, I use an ointment to relax my muscles The ointment makes me feel better, which in turn helps my disposition. My improved disposition enables my family and friends to enjoy life a bit more, too. The proverb tells us that the encouraging words of a friend are like the cologne or ointment. Having friends who are open, trusting and honest enough to share good words of advice and guidance is a God-sent blessing, Those persons who have such friends need to praise and thank God.
