The Most Important Friendship

Writers meeting last night…

Incredible group of ladies.

They always make

My heart soar.

After the meeting

I grabbed a Timmies

With one of the members.

It was nice to catch up.

Ah, friends…

I just love ’em.

Recently

I’ve been challenged

As to the nature

Of real friendship.

If I spend no time with my friend

Maintaining a relationship is hard.

If I simply read about her

It’s not the same as

Personal interaction.

If I know what’s important to him

But never act on it

What kind of friend am I?

If my friend is in

A supervisory position over me

And I ignore his direction

Our friendship will be strained…

To say the least.

If I don’t set aside time for my friend

She may wonder if we’re

Friends at all.

And so it has been with

My Most Important Friend of all.

He’s never far from my thoughts.

I sincerely want to please him.

He always makes himself available.

He gives me all the tools I need

To follow his direction.

He is infinitely patient.

He never belittles me.

In fact

He loves and honours me

More than I could ever deserve.

So

My excuse

For not doing my part?

I could list dozens of reasons

But I have no excuse.

So

Today

I make it my aim

To work on,

To fly to new heights in,

My Most Important Friendship.

The righteous choose their friends carefully (Proverbs 12:26 NIV).
