I Love Good Friends - Things I Love #13

What are Friends?

What are GOOD Friends?

Are you blessed with Good Friends?

I know I am.

And I know that in the different places I have lived in the world God has always provided good friends.

One example from America was the person who invited my three kids and myself for a meal after our first Sunday in the church when we had only been in the country for 2 weeks & Fred was in Germany with work.  She had just met me and did this for us even though she already had another couple and another family of four coming for dinner.
Throughout our 3 years there this friend was always looking out for us and willing to have our kids stay over to let us go on a special weekend.

One example from Belgium was the person who called me up after her husband had met Fred at church and arranged to take me for coffee and show me around the area, then they also took us to a homegroup and many more friendships grew from that.

Then there are the friends from our younger years who we may not see too often but they are still good friends and we can pick up on the friendship even after a long break between seeing them.

Some years ago I started to make Name Rhymes and sell them at craft fairs along with some other items so today I thought I would make one to help to describe what Good Friends are.

So again I ask

Are you blessed with Good Friends?

Are you thankful to them?

Are you thankful to God for providing good friends?

Some say that to have good friends, you yourself, need to be a good friend.

I believe that we shouldn't be a good friend to have a good friend in return but we should simply do as God would want us to do and

just be that good friend regardless of any benefits to ourselves.

Let's do it!
Come on we can do it!

  1. I JUST wrote a post about my friends... (it'll publish tomorrow) there is nothing so precious as a good friend.

  2. I am blessed with good friends! I always say, quality over quantity. You don't need 500 friends to make you feel better. Even just 5 real and good friends are enough to make your life worthwhile. Good for you to be surrounded with wonderful people.

  3. Thank you for reminding me of the good friends that we have and to remember that it is better to give than to receive. Blessings

  4. I am super thankful for our good (GREAT!) friends, especially at our current duty station. As an army family, making new friends every couple of years is hard-- but God continues to bless us. Thank you for being a part of our community, dear Sandra!
