Friends are a gift from the Lord. Sometimes friends can even be closer to us than family. Seek to fellowship with people that will help you build a postive life. Especially young people. The people you surround yourself with, have an affect on you and your outlook on life. The same is true if they are a negative influence. Choose wisely and instruct your children to choose wisely.
The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, or kindly smile, or the joy of companionship. It is the spiritual inspiration that come to one when he discovers that someone else beleives in him and is willing to trust him with friendship. ~ Corrie Ten Boom
Light shines on the righteous and joy on the upright in heart.
Rejoice in the Lord, you who are righteous, and praise his holy name.
