Friendships Are Special

Treasured Friendship

In trust and harmony

our friendship, you and me

Treasured times together

a fond-ship that lasts forever

Looking forward to those special times

we'd meet somewhere nice

when the weather is fine

We'd share our secrets, yours and mine

Yes, pleasant and happy times.

True Friendship

If you're feeling joyful or sometimes bleak

Your presence I would always seek

We lend each other special strengths

we're with each other for the length.

We seek to build each other up

in joyful loyalty and trust.

We like to have those special times

where we share our secrets__ yours and mine

True friendship lasts forever.

Soul-mates are people who bring out the best in you.

They are not perfect but they are perfect for you.

True Qualities in Friendship

You have a say and I have mine

we may not fully agree all the time

You don't have to meet my every need

that is a kindness, love indeed.

Your manner fosters special trust

not given to pride contempt or lust

That is a friendship that will work

where discontentment does not lurk.

Wisdom In Friendships

Healthy Friendships

People are not always at their best

but on these qualities our friendships

should rest:

Forgiveness when one speaks a word out

of line

but it should not be necessary all the time

Some interests to be shared and ventured

Pleasant times that we can treasure__

that does not have to be without measure

And occasional time for adventure.

A Better Friendship

The last time that you spoke to me

to get things off your chest

when you forgot them afterwards

I was not feeling at my best.

I'd like to have some lighter times

for laughter and for fun

some peaceful relaxation

like when our friendship begun.

We're living in a world of stress

you know that would be less

if we value each other's company

in ways that make us free.

Enjoying certain activities

not just sitting down

we could enjoy a walk in a park

with nature all around.

There's something about activities

they make us forget our cares.

So does placing them on the shoulders

of our Mighty God upstairs.

Choose Wisely

Once I had some friendships

that went like sour grapes

They used to be so sweet they really were a treat.

Take care with whom you share your secrets

and aspirations in life

Make sure it is a proven friend who will not give you strife.

If life becomes too much for them

do not your confidence lend

for their moods can be unstable

even at your table.

Make them a casual acquaintance

and do not give them entrance

to the inner circle of your heart

be careful from the start

to see their true nature not just at their best

Make sure they are consistent so you have rest.

And if you can trust them you're truly blessed

you've found a friend indeed.

Friends and True Friends

True Friends are the Sunshine of Life

– Not hardship and strife –

Some Friendships need to be Reviewed,

so Life can Become New.

If people offend repeatedly again and again,

don’t hold on to them to the end –

Trust that you will find True Friends.

Some people continually make you feel sad,

decide for friendships that make you glad.

Friends

As we walk our path of life,

We meet people everyday.

Most are simply met by chance.

But, some are sent our way.

These become special friends

Whose bond we can't explain;

The ones who understand us

And share our joy and pain.

Their love contains no boundaries.

So, even when we are apart.

Their presence enhances us

With a warmth felt in the heart.

Cherished Friend

God must have known there would be times

we'd need a word of cheer

Someone to praise a triumph

or brush away a tear.

He must have known we'd need to share

the joy of "little things"

In order to appreciate

the happiness life brings.

He knew we'd need the comfort

of an understanding heart

To give us strength and courage

to make a fresh, new start.

He knew we'd need companionship

unselfish...lasting...true,

And so God answered the heart's great need

with a Cherished Friend....like you.

A brand new day is dawning

And as it gets its start,

I want you know I am thinking

Of you with warmth in my heart.

It shows in everything that you do

So, have a perfect morning

And an even lovelier day...

Always.... not just for today!

Friends Are Angels

Our friends are like angels

Who brighten our days

In all kinds of wonderful

Surprising ways.

Their thoughtfulness comes

As a gift from above

And we feel we're surrounded

By warm, caring love

Friends are like angels

Without any wings

Blessing our lives

With the most precious things.

Great Friends

Great friends are such a treasure,

and are often far and few.

So when we count our blessings,

we count great friends, like you.

Loving families and true friends

have immeasurable worth.

And bring the most true happiness

that one can know on earth.

So we thank you for your friendship,

and we thank dear God above,

for giving us great friends like you,

to cherish, and to love.
