Five Minute Fridays

Joining Five Minute Fridays at 'the Gypsy Mama'

Guidelines:1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.

Topic: Friends

Friends are those with whom I can be transparent as glass, but know I will not break. Friends can become the family I long for. Friends are true gifts waiting to be opened, but one must be willing to see the gift.

Often, we can become fearful of hurt, especially if we've been hurt before and forget to look for the gift of friends around us. God gives us friends. He knows we need friends. He asks us to trust him to bring the ones with whom we can share our innermost hurts and joys with. He asks us to open our hearts up to the gift of friends and be the friend we long to have.

Reach out. Uplift. Encourage. Extend grace. See the gift of friends. Open the gift of friends. Trust enough to be transparent. Love enough to extend grace. Embrace the gift.

Thank-you, Friends for prayers and you!!

  1. Being transparent: has to be one of the top prerequisites of having a friend. If we can't be honest to and with our friends than we have almost nothing to offer. Great post!
