Five-Minute Friday: Friend
Today I am joining Lisa-Jo and others for the 5 Minute Friday where we are given a word prompt and write for just 5 minutes simply for the joy of writing. No editing or backtracking necessary. No need to be perfect. Just words freely flowing from my heart to yours.
Over the years, friends have come and gone. Moved away, chose to walk away, disappeared, never to be heard from again. I am thankful for those that God has brought into my life, who have walked with me as I’ve weathered life’s storms.
A friend loves at all times.
I have a community of friends that are tried and true, who have loved me through thick and thin. When my faith was weak, they’ve lended their own. When I could not see in front of me, they’ve brought sight to my blind eyes. When I felt as if I had failed, they’ve given back with nothing but unconditional love.
And you, my on-line, may never meet in real life friend, thank you for being here.
You inspire me to chase after my dreams.
You encourage me by your grace-filled words.
You have accepted me and given me unconditional love despite my flaws.
Thank you for accepting me into your space.
Thank you for sharing your life with me and allowing me to share mine in return.
Thank you for being my friend.
I would love for you to join me at Lisa-Jo’s place and share your thoughts on friendship.
