God didn't create us to be alone. He created us for fellowship, both with Him and with others. The gift of friendship is something that I thank Him for on a daily basis. My very best friend is someone that I've known since we were both 12 years old. We live 300 miles apart now but we still get together every few months to catch up with each other. We meet halfway and have lunch, shop and talk, talk, talk.

I also have my friends from church. I know I can call them at any time and they'll pray with me. I see them at least 2 or 3 times a week and we never seem to run out of things to talk about.

Finally, I have my internet friends. Now, to someone who doesn't blog or use an email group of some kind, this may be hard to understand. All I know is that God has simply provided another way to bring friends into my life. I belong to an email group of women who are the greatest. I've "known" some of them for 5 years or more and have even met one or two. I consider them some of my closest friends although we've never met. I know about their families and have prayed for them and had them pray for me. We share each other's joys and sorrows and are there for each other. Isn't that what friendship is all about?

I'm also beginning to make some wonderful friends here as well. I so appreciate the kind words of those who have stopped by to make me feel welcome in this new endeavor of mine. Thank you for making me feel so at home.

Friendship... what a blessing. Make sure to thank God for His wonderful gift!


  1. It is a blessing in my life that you call me your friend and I certainly call you friend too. I think heart-friend is what you call to my mind.

    Have a wonderful Sunday

  2. Hi,
    I found your blog through my cousin, Diane.
    I added your blog to my friend list and look forward to following it, it is very beautiful.

  3. Counting you as a friend is a blessing, Cyn, and being one of those that you've met after a time in cyber-space makes it even more special. I'm so thankful that our group shares such a loving friendship and can depend on each other for prayer.

  4. Cyndy, I have known you for such a brief period, and yet I cannot remember what my life was like without your friendship. Before I joined the 'internet age', I too had a difficult time understanding a friendship such as ours. All I can say is, everyone should have one friend in their life they love and trust with everything. It doesn't matter whether that friend lives next door, acroos the state or in another country, hearts know no distance. I love you, my friend!
