I watched the movie Marley and Me, last night for the third time. As I wiped the tears from my face, I listened to the words spoken at the end, “how many people are rare, pure, special, extraordinary…..give a dog your heart and he will give you his….”.
Nothing is more faithful and loves unconditional like a wonderful “fur” person….but if you are blessed, the encouragement and love of a faithful friend, is the icing on the cake of life. I had brunch today with such a person. In the afternoon I received an email from her, “although we talked about getting older and having less patience and less interest in “things”- our friendship is more valuable as we get older”. That warms my heart.
Song on my Canvas
…..You’re the hope in the morning, you’re the light when the night is falling, you’re the song when my heart is singing it’s Your love…..
Contemporary Christian singer Brandon Heath’s song Your Love, according to his official website is a “testament ot God’s abounding love that never leaves us, gives us purpose, and lights our way. The lyrics celebrate both God’s heart and His love for us.”
Blessings and hugs…
A man who has friends must himself be friendly, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. Proverbs 18:24 (NIV)
