Today I woke up feeling low.
Why, I didn’t really know–
Oh, there were some things on my mind;
Then I remembered someone kind.
I looked at a photograph from a day
We’d spent together when she had come for a stay.
We had shared a meal and talked of things;
I thought of the day–the pleasant memory it brings.
Though life may have its ups and downs,
True friendships are one of its highest crowns.
P. A. Oltrogge
“A friend loves at all times….” Proverbs 17:17
Words of Jesus Christ, our truest friend:
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another.” John 13:34
“You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.” John 15:14-16 (NKJV)
“…I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:20
“…He Himself has said, ‘I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you.'”
