What does it mean to be a friend?

We care about, pray for, encourage and inspire one another. We share fun and hard times, focus on the positives, the great ideas, appreciate our uniquenesses and differences, correcting one another in love. We get excited seeing ourselves and others have breakthroughs, make progress and grow in grace. So when I call you my friend,  that is all my heart can give.

Our friendships should move us closer to God and in love, promoting peace and not move us and others away from God. Friends add value to our lives, help us grow and get better. For me, I get inspired sometimes by others because I feel God put people in my life so I can learn from them and rejoice with them. Because I know I'm surrounded by great minds and inspiring people, it gives me joy to see those around me smile, prosper, celebrate and excel on all sides. Their achievements dont intimidate me but motivate me to see opportunities, potentials, possibilities and hope. Their successes glorify God and inspire me to keep moving forward. That alone puts a smile on my face. That's how I see life.

I stand for and support the happiness of those around me and in my life because that's all friendship is about. We were created to bring joy that fills and heals to those in our lives. If the world was just about us; you or me alone, life will be so boring because life is about variety, creativity and God loves variety. Variety makes life colourful, as it is said to be the spice of life.

Everyone; young and old, has the ability to teach us something no matter how little.  Cherish and value those in your lives. If you will keep them, then cherish them. Giving and showing love never hurts anyone because only love can actually change and save the world. I feel blessed and I'm grateful to God for all the friends and family He has placed in my life. I hope you feel the same way too. Enjoy God and stay blessed.
