1. A person whom one knows, loves, and trusts.
There is just something about sitting with a sweet friend and talking about everything under the sun. It does my heart good. It encourages me. and in the end it brings me peace... because the prayer of a friend is something that just cannot be explained.
As I get older I find myself needing that me time with my sweet friends more and more. I need to bounce ideas off of them. and get their advice. and have them pray for me. my heart just needs it because after those sweet moments I always feel better and encouraged. But more than anything, as I get older I am realizing that God has truly blessed me with such wonderful friends whom I can call my sisters. Without them I would not be the person I am... they just make me be a better me.
So, even though yesterday was crazy and the week has been hard, my time last night with my sweet sister friend was exactly what the doctor ordered. I came home feeling fulfilled. and encouraged. it was just so good for my soul.
Lord, thank you for placing sweet sister friends in my life whom I can be myself with. laugh with. cry with. love fully. receive encouragement from. and give love and encouragement to. They are all so precious to me.
For today I am grateful. and thankful. and counting my blessings that I have such sweet sister friends who walk with me every day through the good and bad. that right there is true friendship love.
Proverbs 17:17 "A friend loves at all times..."
