Thanks to my friend, Mary who always catches me in pictures. She loves that I am a ham!
Every once in awhile I get a song in my head, random. When I do, I just want to listen to it over and over again. For some reason last night, I sat tired and thankful, thinking back on my week and the day. I read a Blog Post which spoke to my heart, somehow…and I started thinking about the gift of good friends. Although I have had my share of all kinds, fairweather, fickle and frightening, I really began pondering the lessons, and amazing gift that God gives in the gems He lavishes us with called friends. I long to be the kind of friend to others that He is to me. But I so fall short. Yet, He is still faithful and gives me friends who truly accept me with all my quirks and shortcomings. Better even still they not only “like me” (Sally Field) they love me. So today I am dedicating this song to all of the sweet friends that God has given me.
Ain’t it good to know, you’ve got a friend?
You can pause the beach sounds at the bottom of the page to listen to James Taylor sing You’ve Got a Friend.
