“Therefore, encourage one another and build one another up, as indeed you do.” (1 Thessalonians 5:11)
Oh what would I do without friends? Shoulders to hug, shoulders to lean on, shoulders to laugh on, shoulders to cry on. I am feeling utterly grateful for them today. There is an aspect of loneliness to the situation I’m dealing with right now that could overwhelm me if I allow it. It could obscure the reality that I am not alone, that I am well loved.
Friends are God’s greeting cards; His notes of well-wishes and encouragement, intended to give you a smile, a sigh of relief and a bit of confidence that all will come right.
