Treasured Friendship
In trust and harmony
our friendship, you and me
Treasured times together
a fond-ship that lasts forever
Looking forward to those special times
we'd meet somewhere nice 
when the weather is fine
We'd share our secrets, yours and mine
Yes, pleasant and happy times.

Blessed Boundaries
When engaged in conversation
that attempts to weigh you down
remind them of the scriptures
before they make you frown.
We should order our conversation
to see the Salvation of The Lord
It should be pleasing to the hearers
a blessing we could afford.
So if you want to talk to me
then you'd be truly wise
if you refrain from negativity
and reports of strife.
I'll be careful not to lend my ears
to endless talk that leads to tears.
Because I value the Peace within me
it's a precious gift from Jesus
He gives to keep us Free.

Wisdom in Friendship
If you wish to be my friend expect me not to lend
my ears to negativity, of that I've made an end.
If you choose life and refrain from strife
we have some common ground.
But I will not engage in endless words
that make me wear a frown.
So if you have a good report
of how God is good to you
I have something to respond to
and it will keep you from feeling blue.
The words we speak are important
so let us be wise when we choose.
They make our friendship without relent
and that is kindness meant.
For if I hear all those sad reports
how can I lift you up?
Each time you give them you're getting deeper
I would not truly be a friend.
So let's share things that lift us up
it's written in His Word.
This way our conversations
can be some of the best we've heard.

True Friendship
If you're feeling joyful or sometimes bleak
Your presence I would always seek
We lend each other special strengths
we're with each other for the length.
We seek to build each other up
in joyful loyalty and trust.
We like to have those special times
where we share our secrets__ yours and mine
True friendship lasts forever.

Soul-mates are people who bring out the best in you. 
They are not perfect but are always perfect for you.

A Better Friendship
The last time that you spoke to me
to get things off your chest
when you forgot them afterwards
I was not feeling at my best.
I'd like to have some lighter times
for laughter and for fun
some peaceful relaxation
like when our friendship begun.
We're living in a world of stress
you know that would be less
if we value each other's company
in ways that make us free.
Enjoying certain activities
not just sitting down
we could enjoy a walk in a park
with nature all around.
There's something about activities
they make us forget our cares.
So does placing them on the shoulders
of our Mighty God upstairs.

True Qualities in Friendship
You have a say and I have mine
we may not fully agree all the time
You don't have to meet my every need
that is a kindness, love indeed.
Your manner fosters special trust
not given to pride contempt or lust
That is a friendship that will work
where discontentment does not lurk.

Blessing Others
Let not my ears be too holy
when others are in need
Let me not overwhelm them with advice
all those things I think best for their life.
But to let them know simply
of the One who sets Free
let them see this in me
the best encouragement I can give.
For if they feel this in a gentle way
the Love of Jesus can Bless their day.
When they open their hearts
this will be a new start.
And if not, it's a seed well sown
Your Glory can be shown
when they remember the time we met
and how their hearts did feel so blessed.

Healthy Friendships
People are not always at their best
but on these qualities our friendships 
should rest:
Forgiveness when one speaks a word out 
of line
but it should not be necessary all the time
Some interests to be shared and ventured
Pleasant times that we can treasure__
that does not have to be without measure
And occasional time for adventure.

Time for Change
You've made my life unrestful
you really ought to know
with your discontents
your perception has been slow.
Each time you share your hardships
it casts shadows on my day.
Where are the days that we once had
that used to make me glad?
You've become so serious
why don't you offload on God?
His shoulders are much bigger than mine
He has more energy and the time
to hear your needs but also make free.
Please choose Him next time instead of me
for I have challenges too
I was not meant to be in your shoes
I'd like to rest where skies are blue.
My heart used to be so free in God
while walking on this earthly sod.
I'm making a choice to return once more
would you like to join me
it's like pleasant shores?
If not my friend, I must go my way
to find myself some better days.

Choose Wisely
Once I had some friendships
that went like sour grapes
They used to be so sweet they really were a treat.
Take care with whom you share your secrets
and aspirations in life
Make sure it is a proven friend who will not give you strife.
If life becomes too much for them
do not your confidence lend
for their moods can be unstable
even at your table.
Make them a casual acquaintance
and do not give them entrance
to the inner circle of your heart
be careful from the start
to see their true nature not just at their best
Make sure they are consistent so you have rest.
And if you can trust them you're truly blessed
you've found a friend indeed.

Attributes in Friendship
You don't have to meet my every need
but we're there for each other when there's 
a special need.
Joyful times we like to share
that should not have to be one that's rare.
Life's not perfect, this we know
in these times our kindness shows
We're there for each other
like sisters and brothers
You have my trust and loyalty
affections that were meant to be__
always constant but I am free.
Seek for balance and liberty.

Yes, I've had a few challenges with friends in recent years that
resulted in 'burn-out' - if you've heard of that term. My sister
invited me on a refreshing holiday....and on return,
Jesus gifted me with Poetic Language so I could keep the nice
Nature Feel of that short country trip.
I recommend NATURE and Pleasant Music to those who
are exhausted. Try them and SEE!

YES, Friendship is meant to be a Blessing.
 
 
 It's alright to have a listening ear if you listen
to your needs as well.  ©
 
Friendship is not for meeting each other's needs 
but people often think it is. ©
 
Don't expect your friend to meet your need 
but expect God to meet both your needs. ©
 
It is good to have some joy in friendship....
not problems all the time. ©
 
You can make an atmosphere that would
make for cheer....ask your friends to work at it with
you. Most people don't think of this!
