F is for...

Friends are kisses blown to us by angels.
—Author Unknown

Everyone needs at least one friend she can share her heart with, no matter how painful, embarrassing, or uncomfortable the subject. Someone she can laugh with when things are wonderful, and who will cry with her when life brings tears.

Having one such friend is indeed a blessing. The person who has more than one friend of the heart…that person is wealthy beyond imagination.

I have little in the way of monetary riches, but I am wealthy nonetheless. I am blessed with friends I’ve known from childhood, as well as new friends who fit so well into my life that they feel as though I’ve known them that long.

To all of my friends—and you know who you are—thank you for enriching my life!

That’s my take on friendship. Here’s what a few folks better known than I have to say on the subject:

A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be.
 —Douglas Pagels

Only your real friends will tell you when your face is dirty.
—Sicilian Proverb

A loyal friend laughs at your jokes when they're not so good, and sympathizes with your problems when they're not so bad. 
—Arnold H. Glasgow

A true friend never gets in your way unless you happen to be going down. 
—Arnold Glasgow

The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart. 
—Elisabeth Foley
A friend knows the song in my heart and sings it to me when my memory fails. 
—Donna Roberts

Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art.... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival. 
—C.S. Lewis

The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch with, never saying a word, and walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you've had.

Great stuff, isn’t it? J I do love my friends, and I’m so grateful that they’ve honored me by accepting me into their circle of life.

Above all, I’m thankful that I have a friend in Jesus…He’s everything to me!


James 2:23 (KJV)— And the scripture was fulfilled which saith, Abraham believed God, and it was imputed unto him for righteousness: and he was called the Friend of God.


  1. Delia, such a good post. When your F was going to be about friends, I immediatley thought about Jesus and how we can always count on Him night or day to always be there for us.

  2. Yes, we can. He's the best Friend ever! :)
