The beauty of special friends

FRIENDSHIP...something to cherish.. 


(click on the photo to enlarge..the tree of life)



The dictionary says...friend means, one that is attached to another by affection or esteem showing kindly interest and goodwill, inclined to favor,  is cheerful, comforting.


I have a friend that is all of these and more. It's not easy to discribe her..there are not enough adjective's to tell you all about her.


I have many wonderful friends and aquantances..but this friend is at the top of the list.!!!. A very special woman....When we met we found our life stories were very similar, she is a lot younger than me. yet we're a lot least I flatter myself to think so! 


She is the most positive and generous woman I know..Never a bad word about anybody or anything..regardless of what hardships she is going through or has gone through. Her struggles with health issues don't keep her down..people that hurt or disappoint her only makes her want to reach out to help them.


Do you have a friend that makes you feel wonderful when you talk or get together, one that you can share your inner thoughts with..? That's how I feel with my special friend. 

When I'm going through some down times, I say..." I gotta get a Ginny fix" to lift my spirits and encourage me to DO something about what is troubling me..Her sense of humor and a teasing way makes me laugh off the problem.    and hey...She makes the best popcorn..!  


I'm sorry she that she doesn't live in Wisconsin anymore..and trips out to Arizona are not as easy now...I've been able to visit when she and Jack lived in Ventura, Ca., Surprise Arizona and also in Prescott, AZ.  where they live now..


But distance doesn't matter,  even though we don't get to talk that often,  when we do it seems like time stood still and  I can feel the closeness and warmth.  


I'm telling you about my friend and hope you have one that makes you feel special too. If you don't, have that kind of friendship..then BE THAT TO SOMEONE ELSE.


We are blessed with the greatest of all Christ Jesus


We were created in God's image..his love is never ending..He asks us to love one another as he loves us..


"When Jesus saw the multitudes, he was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, Like sheep having no shepherd. (Matthew9:36) 


The Lord will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory.(Isaiah60:19)


The peace of God, which transends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.(Philippians 4:7)


The Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace ..(Numbers 6:25-26)


FRIENDS... loving friendship...I love all my friends, and thank God for them!
