I have lots of friends but some are acquaintances, some are distant, some are close. On facebook I have over 600 friends. But some of those friends are just acquaintances, some are long distance friends, some are friends from years ago, some are close friends. I’ve become friends with a few folks simply because we have things in common. Some friends are relatives and some are relatives I’ve never met but we have family in common so we’re friends! We’ve enjoyed getting acquainted and sharing pictures over facebook.
I have friends all over the world! Some, I’ve gotten to go and visit. Some, have come here to visit me! Some, are correspondents.
This morning before church started a friend came to me with a bouquet of beautiful cut flowers. She had picked them from her yard before leaving for church. She handed them to me and said, “For you!” I couldn’t believe it!
Then she handed me a package. She recently went to Portugal and while there, bought some olive oil! In the package was a can of olive oil for me!
I treasure my friends. All my friends. It doesn’t matter what kind of friend…I treasure them.
Oh, what kind of friend am I? I hope I’m a true, faithful, fun, trusting, caring, generous friend.
Friends are a gift from God.
