Sunday Meditation--Friends

Friends are those rare people who ask how we are and then wait to hear the answer
Henri Nouwen

Nothing but heaven itself is better than a friend who is really a friend.

The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing... not healing, not curing... that is a friend who cares.
Henri Nouwen

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.
Oprah Winfrey

Romans 12:9 Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle.  (The Message)


  1. Simply lovely. Thank you for sharing. Have a great Sunday.

  2. There is nothing in the world like a good friend- one who is with you for the downs as well as the ups! Blessings- xo Diana

  3. I like the way the Message write that - so true. sandie
