It's Five Minute Friday when I link up with Lisa-Jo of The Gypsy Mama. We are given a writing prompt each week. We have five minutes flat to write and that's it. Our word for today is ...FRIEND.
I am so fortunate. I have many friends. I don't take that lightly. Each one is near and dear to my heart in a different way.
I have childhood friends. We go back many years and thanks to Facebook I can still keep in touch to find out what's going on in their lives.
I have friends I met in church. Some have moved so I don't get to see them as often as I like. One is on the mission field far away but I love to see her when she is home on furlough.
I have friends I met through Bible Study Fellowship. We laugh together, pray together and cry together. We've experienced sickness, struggles and even a recent death of one.
I have friends I met through work, past and present.
I have many blogging friends. Some I have met and others I've yet to meet in person.
I have friends who are neighbors.
I have friends who also happen to be my family.
How grateful I am for the gift of friendship. Life isn't easy. Friends make the journey more fun.
Thank you Lord for my friends.
Blessings and love,
