true friendship...

A blessed thing it is for any man or woman to have a friend;
one human soul whom we can trust utterly;
who knows the best and the worst of us,
and who loves us in spite of all our faults;
who will speak the honest truth to us,
while the world flatters us to our face
and laughs at us behind our back;
who will give us counsel and reproof
in the day of prosperity and self-conceit,
but who, again, will comfort and encourage us
in the day of difficulty and sorrow,
when the world leaves us alone to fight our own battle as we can.
~Charles Kingsley
Thank you, Father, for this kind of friends in our lives...
those who love us in spite of ourselves;
those who love us with Your love;
those who remind us of who we are in You;
those You have given to us
and us to them.
I am grateful.

Two are better than one,because they have a good return for their work:
If one falls down, his friend can help him up. But pity the man who falls and has no one to help him up!
~Ecclesiates 4:9-10
