Thank you to My Friend

Dear friend,

Thank you for taking the time for me

For listening to me even though you have heard it all before

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.  John 15:13 

For being a shoulder when need to cry

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 2Corinthians 1:3-4 

For your honesty even though I may not always agree

Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of a friend springs from their heartfelt advice. Proverbs 27:9

For your patience

And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone 1Thessalonians 5:14

For your kindness and encouragement

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, Hebrews 10:24 

For loving me for who I am

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 1 John 4:7

You have no idea how big of a difference you make in my life 

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.  Proverbs 27:17

I just want to say thank you, your friendship means so much to me

Love, T

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: 10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.  Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

    Hi T , I’m sure you have many friends and I hope you value me as a Blogging friend as I do you. I use to think there was only two types of friendship God’s and the worlds but now I realise their is also Blogging friendship and it is special in it’s own way but with all friendship, we need to value others highly as Jesus touches our hearts and lives with His Friendship..

    I created a Power Point on friendship, I used Roses, I hope you enjoy it, you are a very special person and I thank God our lives touched.

      Thank you Anne,I do value you as a blogging friend. I just started the blog because I felt like God wanted me to start a blog, I never really thought about the fact that I would end up reading blogs too. Before I started blogging I never really even knew what a blog was. what started as writing turned into going to check out those who liked or commented and then reading and following blogs… and to top it off making friends! what a huge unexpected blessing! Thank you for your friendship and also for your own blog and also for sharing your beautiful power point. I am glad and thankful our lives touched too!

    Wow Terri, you are a natural at blogging, this is so well thought out, I can see you put a lot of effort in this. To find scriptures to match your letter absolutely brilliant. You should repost this?

      Thank you, your always to kind. What you just said about reposting… since you have been reading and commenting on posts that I wrote some time ago, I have been going back to reread to see what I wrote to be able to comment back to you. It has been a really good trip down memory lane on quite a few of them and I have thought of posting several again because I realize how much was going on when I wrote them and even how much more they mean now. thank you for your encouragement, I just may do it. Blessings to you!
