Friend: A Holy Connection (5MF)



Friendship is a safe place, where one can lay back, arms behind the head looking up at the clouds as they pass, say nothing, and all is good.

A friend is one who never gives up on you, a million graces given for no other reason than they accept you. Just. As. You. Are. Flaws and all… better still are the friends who just don’t see all those faults you see in yourself. They hedge you in on every side with grace. Oh, yes,  a friend is a good, good thing!

A friend is a surprise God allows into  your life to remind you, He’s got your back, and when He loves you through the friends He brings into your life, there is a holy connection. Uncomplicated, precious and beautiful. He handpicks our friends, each holy connection to magnify His love.

  1. Hi Dawn! “A holy connection.” I love that. I know God has hand-picked my friends, but have never thought about them as a holy connection. Thank you for stretching my thoughts today! Your words are so true. Those friends that don’t see the flaws we see in ourselves are priceless. Thank you for sharing this today. You blessed me. May God continue to bless you, your writing, and your life with Him!


  2. Can I tell you that you are most definitely a “holy connection” for me? Since we are “only” internet friends I have given you a limited picture of me probably. But you love me and I feel your encouragement and care through this silly little screen. I am so very thankful for you Dawn….more than you could know. I love you dear lady. Susie
