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.

Blessed Boundaries

When engaged in conversation
that attempts to weigh you down
remind them of the scriptures
before they make you frown.
We should order our conversation
to see the Salvation of The Lord
It should be pleasing to the hearers
a blessing we could afford.
So if you want to talk to me
then you'd be truly wise
if you refrain from negativity
and reports of strife.
I'll be careful not to lend my ears
to endless talk that leads to tears.
Because I value the Peace within me
it's a precious gift from Jesus
He gives to keep us Free.

Wisdom in Friendship

If you wish to be my friend expect me not to lend
my ears to negativity, of that I've made an end.
If you choose life and refrain from strife
we have some common ground.
But I will not engage in endless words
that make me wear a frown.
So if you have a good report
of how God is good to you
I have something to respond to
and it will keep you from feeling blue.
The words we speak are important
so let us be wise when we choose.
They make our friendship without relent
and that is kindness meant.
For if I hear all those sad reports
how can I lift you up?
Each time you give them you're getting deeper
I would not truly be a friend.
So let's share things that lift us up
it's written in His Word.
This way our conversations
can be some of the best we've heard.

A Better Friendship

The last time that you spoke to me
to get things off your chest
when you forgot them afterwards
I was not feeling at my best.
I'd like to have some lighter times
for laughter and for fun
some peaceful relaxation
like when our friendship begun.
We're living in a world of stress
you know that would be less
if we value each other's company
in ways that make us free.
Enjoying certain activities
not just sitting down
we could enjoy a walk in a park
with nature all around.
There's something about activities
they make us forget our cares.
So does placing them on the shoulders
of our Mighty God upstairs.

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.

Time for Change

You've made my life unrestful
you really ought to know
with your discontents
your perception has been slow.
Each time you share your hardships
it casts shadows on my day.
Where are the days that we once had
that used to make me glad?
You've become so serious
why don't you offload on God?
His shoulders are much bigger than mine
He has more energy and the time
to hear your needs but also make free.
Please choose Him next time instead of me
for I have challenges too
I was not meant to be in your shoes
I'd like to rest where skies are blue.
My heart used to be so free in God
while walking on this earthly sod.
I'm making a choice to return once more
would you like to join me
it's like pleasant shores?
If not my friend, I must go my way
to find myself some better days.

Choose Wisely

Once I had some friendships
that went like sour grapes
They used to be so sweet they really were a treat.
Take care with whom you share your secrets
and aspirations in life
Make sure it is a proven friend who will not give you strife.
If life becomes too much for them
do not your confidence lend
for their moods can be unstable
even at your table.
Make them a casual acquaintance
and do not give them entrance
to the inner circle of your heart
be careful from the start
to see their true nature not just at their best
Make sure they are consistent so you have rest.
And if you can trust them you're truly blessed
you've found a friend indeed.
