A place to go when a friend is all you need.

 

"A friend is a person who goes around saying nice things about you behind your back." www.JustCallMeFriend.com A place to go when a friend is all you need.

When I was in the 3rd grade, a family moved in across the street.  They had a little girl my age.  Wanting to be friends and play with her, I asked my Mom and Dad “how do you make friends?”.  They laughed, like any parent I’m sure would, and said, “you just go talk to them.”  Sounds easy enough.  So I did that.  And…well…we never really became friends.  She became part of the popular crowd.  I was not.

It wasn’t until I was in my mid-30’s and started getting an intimate relationship with my Savior, Jesus Christ, that I truly understood how to make and be a friend.  I can now say I have a few intimate friends.  These are the kind you can sit with, laugh at, cry with, shout at, shout for, pick up, hold high, pray for, pray with, call at a moment’s notice, talk for hours on end and then do it again the next week or next month.  I am so thankful for my time with them.  I also have an even larger group of close friends that I may not be as intimate with or talk to near as often but love dearly.

My point is this.  We all NEED friends. No one can have too many.  I pray that through this blog, you can call me friend, but more importantly, that you can call Jesus your friend.  Without Him, we could not possibly understand what a true friend is.
