Friendships

Hello dear sisters and saints
Babygirl has not being feeling well so she has had me on and off awake all night. I am not very good at that so this last time I decided to stay a wake for a bit for my own sake and hers.

I have been laying here contemplating friendships. I got to thinking of my beloved husband. He truly is an incredible man, incredible person. He has this friend- work buddy that adores him. Yes this man is older than he is but he often text me asking me, "how is he really Angie"- I want to know the truth. He worries about his physical well being. 

On Father's Day this same gentleman contacted me and said " I wanted to give Sam a gun but I know he won't just accept it, so here is the deal, you gather a dollar $1.00 - from every child in your home and I will sell you this gun for $7.00. The kids then can give him this gun for Father's Day." I agreed of course. I got the gun and since I know nothing about them had no idea the true value of this gun. When Sam opened it on Father's Day I even thought wow that is a nice looking gun. 


I envy their friendship. I have traveled through life seeking a friendship with someone as they have for one another. Oh as you know it is so much more than the gift of the gun. The heart that this man has for Sam so willing to give up something of great value to the world so he can have it. At the same time caring for him as a man and being sure he did not step on that man ego! (Which is where the "buying" it came in )

How come Lord I don't have that?
What is about me that keeps women from loving me? From caring for me and wanting to walk through life with me? 

Friendship - what does that look like and mean?

John15
13 Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.
Friendship to me is someone you are safe with. No matter what you say or how you say it they know your heart and love you through it all. I try to love with all that I am.

Proverbs 17:17 

A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.
Friendship to me is realistic- we aren't always going to agree on everything or see eye to eye, but through that friendship and love words can be exchanged without offense and we can love through our differences.



Solo para la Gloria de Dios
