Friendship

Today is Valentine’s Day. I wish for each one who reads this post a wonderful, loving day!

This morning during devotions I read in Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 that “Two are better than one because they have a good reward for their labor.”  I prayed about my relationships with friends thought how easy it was for me to neglect them over time.

A friend can share my joys and trials. Friends double my joy in the good times and support me during grievous ones. Dividing the heaviness of burdens through loving support is priceless. On the other hand, how sad it would be to have no close friends with whom I can share my successes…

The Lord led me to phone my closest friends today and tell them how much I love them. It seemed especially appropriate today! An action that took just a few minutes positively energized me the rest of the day.

What about you? Is there a friend who would enjoy hearing from you? Not only will your friend be blessed, but hearing his/her voice will lift you up and bless your day! Let me know if you told friends today how important they are in your life. Thanks for stopping by and visiting with me!
