Friendship

Dear Lord,

My friends are important to me!

Lonely roads are hard to walk!
When I fall down, I need someone to hold me up
When I am hurt, I need someone to comfort me
When I am alone, I need someone to keep me company
When I am happy, I need someone to share with me

Good Friends:
When I am in pain, they share the burden with me
When I succeed, they won't be jealous of me
When I fail, they won't leave me
When I am proud, they rebuke me
When I am wrong, they correct me
If I have wronged against them, they forgive me

My Dear Lord:
Before I have others' friendship, please teach me how to be other's friend
Not looking at others according to:
what they wear
how much knowledge they have
how wise they are
how pretty / handsome they are

Help me:
not to be proud of my strengths
not to look down on others' weaknesses
not to boast about my success
not to forget others' blessings

Teach me:
to speak gently
to have a kind attitude
to be cheerful
to be faithful

Even though I may not do anything big for my friends, lead me to give my care, concern and prayers !
I long to be a blessing to all of my friends, my loved ones!

Thanks for this poem. Friends are so important. We often have many people who are friends that we do things with. But the "true friends" that we can tell anything to, are few and far between. We need to cherish them.

You know what? I praise God for the internet, and blogs. Without this medium, I wouldn't have 'known' each of you - my blogger family - reading all your comments above put tears in my eyes. I feel so blessed to have every single one of you as my friend and my blogosphere 'tribe'. May God bless each of you richly as You follow hard after Him. Cherish you all heaps!
