Sometimes, friends come to us…
in ways we might not expect.
Through written words.
Through small, thoughtful gestures.
Through a voice on the phone, across the street or across the miles.
Through a hug, when it’s needed the most, and nothing else will do.
Friendship crosses gender barriers, racial barriers,
economic barriers, age barriers,
time and distance.
Friendship plants itself deep in the heart…
A place that always feels like home.
Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart,
and the pleasantness of a friend
springs from their heartfelt advice. Proverbs 27:9 NIV
