A true friend -
- makes us a better person by their example. "He who walks with the wise grows wise but a companion of fools suffers harm." Proverbs 13:20
- confronts our faults by their honesty. "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." Proverbs 27:17
- sticks with us by their loyalty. "A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity." Proverbs 17:17
Thank you dear friends, old and new. I treasure our friendship -- you are a gift from God. May I be such a gift to you.
"Time spent with a true friend is nourishment for the soul." - anonymous
