Five Minute Friday - "Friends"

It's Saturday- I know. I'm trying to get back into this five minute Friday writing again- because I find it to be so relaxing. Anyway- I'm back- just in time; because I really need to get showered and ready for the day.
Fridays word was "FRIENDS"

Here goes:

We hear it said time and time again that in order to have friends; one must be a good friend. In fact I just saw it on a school classroom door; just yesterday.
It made me think, not just think but take a moment to say a short prayer.

You see I have been so let down by friends that I have become super shy; and worried that I may not ever be someones best friend. Where does this come from?; I ask God. It stems from a horrible word called jealousy- Not jealous of people and their things- but a different kind. Jealous of other woman's friendships. They seem so unattainable to me; that I've found myself in a place of flat out giving up. With a focus on that I cannot realistically be a good friend.

But back to the poster on the door- It isn't about having friends- it really is about being a friend.

- this I do know...

I have a best friend- His name is Jesus- and he is showing me through His example of being my best friend- just how I can do the same for someone else.

And for this...I am grateful.

AND .... STOP.

5 minutes is up. Have a Great Weekend! I thank God for giving me a lot to reflect on.
Now it's your turn click here to participate, or just to read some beautiful entries based on one word.


  1. You are so right! He is our best friend.

  2. Friendship is something only those who have it know it's value. Thank for writing this up. Love it.
