Lisa Jo Baker has a wonderful blog for moms. On Fridays, she does a whacky thing called, “Five Minute Fridays”. She asks fellow bloggers to write for five minutes on just one word. And if you know blogging, and women, that’s a hard thing! Refreshing though.
Today the word is….
A friend should/could/ought to be one who we can talk to about anything without fearing their response.
A friend might encourage rather than criticize.
A friend can bear a burden along the often hard path we walk.
A friend loves, even when we are unlovely.
A friend forgives, yet doesn’t do it so they will be loved back, but to truly show Christ’s love.
A friend responds when called or written or texted.
A friend listens.
A friend counsels.
A friend sips coffee together and laughs at life’s simple joys.
A friend can take a month or six months off to do her own thing, and when you get back together, it’s like you were never apart.
I pray I show these qualities to my friends.
How do you define “friend”?
A friend loves at all times, And a brother is born for adversity. Proverbs 17:17
