The Beauty of Friendship

Friendship is a priceless gift
That cannot be bought or sold
But its value is far greater
Than a mountain made of gold

For gold is cold and lifeless
It can neither see nor hear
And in the time of trouble
It is powerless to cheer

It has no ears to listen
Nor heart to understand
It cannot bring you comfort
Or reach out a helping hand

So when you ask God for a gift
Be thankful if He sends
Not diamonds, pearls or riches
But the love of real true friends

[Helen Steiner Rice]

1 Samuel 18:1 ... And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.

Proverbs 17:17 ... A friend loveth at all times, and a brother is born for adversity. ❤
