Close Friend Day.

There is a scripture that reminds us that there is a friend that sticks closer than any family member. There is no doubt that Jesus completely fits this description. However, He has also blessed us with earthly friends. Today I was reminded of close friend day by a true friend! I am thankful Lord for special friends.

Tell a friend today how much you appreciate them!

  

     ~Special Friends~

I am thankful Lord for special friends,
On who I always can depend.

The ones I may not often see,

Yet memories are still with me.

The ones who often come my way,

To listen, or to talk and pray.

The ones I know yet seldom meet,

Yet arms are open wide to greet.

The ones who answer to my call,

Who will rescue me if I should fall.

The ones who share my broken dreams,

And listen to my heartfelt screams.

The ones who bears my ups and downs,

Whose kindness seems to know no bounds.

The ones who see my need to rest,

And offers me their very best.

The ones who through life’s fuss and rush,

Still pause awhile to keep in touch.

The ones time cannot come between,

Though distance often intervene.

The ones who share a certain trust,

That stays between the both of us.

These Lord are friends who give their all,

Through winter, summer, spring or fall.
