Friends in the true sense of the word are far, few and in between in all the stages of life. They seem plentiful in times of blessing but are truly revealed when times are hard. These last three years I've grown to appreciate, cherish, love and bless God for my friends.
John 15:13 (Amplified Bible)13
No one has greater love [no one has shown stronger affection] than to lay down (give up) his own life for his friends.
