Friendship is born at the moment when one person says to another: "What! You Too? I thought I was the only one." -C.S Lewis
Friends. What is a true friend? What is a friend in general? I often think about the expression when one say "My Friend." A friend is someone who is truely sent by God, ordained and appointed for you. Someone who is able to hear and understand not only your hurts, and cries. But they are someone who understand your happiness and joy. They feel for you. They forgive and show compassion. Knowing the two are linked they build you up as you build them up. A friend is supportive and loyal. Trustworthy and knowledgable, showing sympathy and empathy. All these qualities is true defintion of "Friendship" a huge difference from associate.
Knowing when you have been blessed with true friends is a beautiful gift divinely touched by God. The beauty of a true friend is knowing that they are strong and able to do what need to be done. Embracing the mystery of true friendship and sharing it amongst each other is a gorgeous experience which last forever. Though you may have fall out's you always seem to make up. Love also plays a major role in friendship. LOVE! The word love conveys all! It shapes the lives and relationship.
However I just thank God for shaping me into the young woman I am. Being a friend to many. Showing them love, compassion, sympathy, and my light which shines so bright because of Jesus Christ! The beauty of friendship is a mir relfection of Christ. "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command." -John 15:13-14 Christ love is greater than all and he is our friend! What more can we ask for? Follow his footsteps (word of God) and you will know the "Beauty Of Friendship" which come from him.
"A faithful friend is a strong defense: And he that have found such a friend has found a treasure." -Ecclesiastes
