Treasured Friendship

In trust and harmony
our friendship, you and me
Treasured times together
a fond-ship that lasts forever
Looking forward to those special times
we'd meet somewhere nice 
when the weather is fine
We'd share our secrets, yours and mine
Yes, pleasant and happy times.

Your Friendship
 
"There is something in your friendship
Very sweet for rainy days—
‘Tis your thoughtfulness in finding
What I like in little ways
And of doing one by one,
Things that others leave undone.

There is something in your friendship,
Sane and strong and glad and true,
Which makes better worth the doing
Everything I have to do,
And your friendly word and smile
Somehow helps make life worth-while.

There is something in you friendship
Very rare to find, my friend,
‘Tis unselfishness in giving
Without stint and without end;
So there is—at last I learn—
Love that asks for no return.

There is something in your friendship
That has stood through many a test,
Giving me a sense of safety,
Of security and rest—
Friend of mine, my whole life through,
I’ll be glad that I met you."

Pure Delight

It's such a pleasure and a joy
To have a friend like you.
You always care, you're always there,
You say the right things, too!
You make me smile when I am low
You're just a pure delight.
We talk a lot about everything;
You make my life so bright!
I hope that I am giving you
Some joy and happiness,
Because you mean so much to me,
More than I can express!

True Friendship

If you're feeling joyful or sometimes bleak
Your presence I would always seek
We lend each other special strengths
we're with each other for the length.
We seek to build each other up
in joyful loyalty and trust.
We like to have those special times
where we share our secrets__ yours and mine
True friendship lasts forever.

Soul-mates are people who bring out the best in you. 
They are not perfect but are always perfect for you.

You Are A Blessing to Me

Have I told you lately,
you are a blessing to me
have I expressed how much
in you, God’s grace I can see.

Have I let you know recently,
how much I appreciate you
have I conveyed in actual words
my gratitude for all you do.

Have I voiced my pleasure,
of just having you around
have I said, you lift me up
whenever I’m feeling down.

Have I uttered my thanks,
for your kindness and love
have I spoken I believe . . .
you’re my angel from above.

Have I told you lately,
what a blessing you are to me
have I expressed just how much
of Jesus ~ in you, I do see!

True Qualities in Friendship

You have a say and I have mine
we may not fully agree all the time
You don't have to meet my every need
that is a kindness, love indeed.
Your manner fosters special trust
not given to pride contempt or lust
That is a friendship that will work
where discontentment does not lurk.

Healthy Friendships

People are not always at their best
but on these qualities our friendships 
should rest:
Forgiveness when one speaks a word out 
of line
but it should not be necessary all the time
Some interests to be shared and ventured
Pleasant times that we can treasure__
that does not have to be without measure
And occasional time for adventure.

Prayer for a Friend
 
O Lord, Please bless our friendship
Our friendship is like a long steady soft rain.
It's not so harsh that it will destroy.
Yet it is not so soft that it goes unnoticed.
Our friendship is growing in your grace.
Please bless our friendship, and keep it holy at all times.
Friendship is a gift from you, O Lord, and we thank you.
May our friendship always produce the fruits of the spirit.
And may the soft rain of our friendship nourish the heart forever.
I wish you inner silence.
When things look empty

Amen!
