true friends

Friendship by Naveen Kadam CreativeCommons 2.0

We give you thanks, O God, for those who mean so much to us –
   Those to whom we can go at any time,
   Those with whom we can talk and keep nothing back,
      knowing that they will not laugh at our dreams or our failures,
   Those in whose presence it is easier to be good,
   Those who by their warning have held us back
      from mistakes we might have made.
Above all, we thank you for Jesus Christ,
   Lord of our hearts and Savior of our souls,
   in whose Name we offer this thanksgiving.

William Barclay, 1907-1978 minister in the Church of Scotland


Proverbs 17:17

A friend loves at all times,
   and a brother is born for adversity.
