One of my favorite is in (Proverbs 18:24).
Some friendships don't last, but some friends are more loyal than brothers.
I believe this really says lots about the people we meet in our life.
We meet some people and become great pals and others may come and go and we wonder what happened. Some friendships are meant for a short time and others may last a lifetime. One never knows when you meet that person. Growing up in a small town, I still run across a childhood friend and we cherish warm memories of childhood as if it was yesterday.
He who walks with wise grow wise, but a companion of fools suffers harm.
I have had and have many wise friends over the years which I call mentors. I have learned much from them. They have taught me how to live, love and laugh. A few that come to mind were little old ladies in my garden club. They have passed now, but they knew how to live and be a friend. They were so much fun to be around they brought out the best in everyone. And yes, I have walked with a couple of foolish friends and know their negativity was not a good influence, so it was time to move on. With some people, it is just too much work to stay friends. I Love them, but it best to let them go.I believe you can learn from each of your friendships. I feel you can grow and learn, even from the ones that hurt you.There is always a lesson to be learned. It may help you too appreciate what friends you have in your life.
Letting go can be hard, but sometimes necessary. As they say, when one doors shuts, another opens.
I have made many new wonderful friends on the web with my Blog, Facebook and playing Scrabble. It has restored my faith in believing that most people are good. I hope you enjoyed my lovely church pictures of Murray, Kentucky. Have a blessed week and make a new friend.
And Yes, I married my best friend Bill.
