Friends are there when you least expect them.
When your heart is aching and you feel all alone.
They seem to know and show up just when you
think you can't make it through another day.
They lend an ear, share a heartache, offer compassion,
inspire the spirit, pray for you daily and sacrifice
both their time and their love to uplift and
comfort at any time.
They accept you as you are, recognize
your faults and love you just the same. They offer
of themselves without thought of receiving anything
in return. A true friend shares both the joy and the
sorrow in your life. If you have a "true" friend
you have something more valuable than gold.
God's Boxes of Love
I have in my hands two boxes
Which God gave me to hold.
He said, "Put all your sorrows in the black,
And all your joys in the gold."
I heeded His words, and in the two boxes
Both my joys and sorrows I stored
But though the gold became heavier each day
The black was as light as before.
With curiosity, I opened the black ,
I wanted to find out why.
And I saw, in the base of the box, a hole
Which my sorrows had fallen out by.
I showed the hole to God, and mused aloud,
"I wonder where my sorrows could be."
He smiled a gentle smile at me."
"My child, they're all here with me."
I asked, "God, why give me the boxes,
Why the gold, and the black with the hole?"
"My child, the gold is for you to count your blessings,
The black is for you to let go."

A lovely little flower.
With petals bright as drops of sun,
Left by a summer shower.

And grew and blossomed there.

Will blossom into warmth and joy,
To brighten someone's day.

A word, a touch, a smile,

Love is still free as in yesterday.
Yet love can heal our wounds and pains,

Love's elusive in lonely nights and dawning day,
Love cannot be purchased with silver or gold.
