Friends Are A
My life has not always been so blessed,
Because I walked along the wrong path
Looking for something or someone I confess,
That would give me what I never had.
Friends come in different wrappings.
Some all wrapped up neat and tight.
Yet some are so loose, you're afraid of trappings.
If they are showy and phony, they don't fit right.
When God sends you friends, he sends the best!
They are trained by His word and his love.
He has already decided to put them to the test,
To see if they possess the love, like comes from above.
Really true friends are hard to come by,
But if they are Christians, they're the best.
They not only love you for who you are,
But come to your aid when troubles steal your rest.
God has sent many friends my way.
Some who are unassuming and just quit.
But there are also those who make your day,
With greetings, prayers, a note that says, "you are
I thank God for all my friends, especially on the net.
They are friends that pop up every day at my place,
Make themselves right at home.
I feel as though we have met.
I feel the warmth, and care coming through,
Like looking in their face.
