Gift of Friendship

"Two are better than one;
because they have heat: 
but how can one be warm alone?

And if one prevail against him,
two shall withstand him;
and a threefold cord is not quickly broken."
~Ecclesiastes 4:9-10~

Poems on Friendship
By Helen Steiner Rice

Friendship is a priceless gift
That can't be bought of sold,
But to have an understanding friend
Is worth far more than gold.

The world we live in can be harsh and unwelcoming, intolerant of our mistakes. God knew we would need friends to encourage us along the way. He knew we would need others to laugh with, sing with, dream with. He knew we would need comfort and support and loving-kindness. Cherish your friends; hold them close. They are very special people, for they do God's work in your life.

Across the years we've met in dreams
And shared each other's hopes and schemes,
We knew a friendship rich and rare
And beauty far beyond compare.
Then you reached out your arms for more,
To catch what you were yearning for.
But little did you think or guess
That one can't capture happiness
Because it's unrestrained and free,
Unfettered by reality.

We lock up our hearts
and fail to heed
The outstretched hand,
reaching to find
A kindred spirit
whose heart and mind
Are lonely and longing
to somehow share
Our joys and sorrows
and to make us aware
That life's completeness
and richness depends
On the things we share
with our loved ones
and friends.

"Love one another:
as I have loved you, 
that ye also love one another.
By this shall all men know
that ye are my disciples,
if ye have love one to another."
~John 13:34-35~

Thank you for your friendship
And your understanding of
The folks who truly love you
And the folks you truly love.

Friends and prayers are priceless treasures
Beyond all monetary measures,
And so I say a special prayer
That God will keep you in His care.

For the friends that we make
are life's gift of love,
And I think friends are sent
right from heaven above.
And thinking of you
somehow makes me feel
That God is love and He's very real.
