Bread For The Journey
The ten of us women have had a very special friendship for the past 10 years. We have shared tears, laughter, encouragement, and prayer together. We love each other and are friends (family) for life! I call them 'sisters of my heart'.
I also have other friendships that I've treasured for over 50 years. These are friendships I don't take lightly. They are precious and close to my heart, an unbreakable bond between us. It takes time and effort to build these relationships but are truly worth it in the end.
Friends don't necessarily agree with each other all the time but true friendship allows you to separate the 'wheat from the chaff'. You keep the valuable and let the rest blow away!
Friends enrich our very existence. In the Bible we read that David and Jonathan had such a friendship.
1 Samuel 18: 1 - 4 ESV tells us how close these two were..in verse 1 it tells us that 'Jonathan was knit to the soul of David and Jonathan loved him as his own soul..' That is true friendship.
I want to be that kind of friend.
