Friend's Love

Proverbs 17:17. Friends...

            What makes a person a 'friend?'  A friend is more than an acquaintance but is someone you can count on in good times and bad.  A friend is one who can give advice or just be a listening ear.  'A friend is someone who knows your faults, but loves you anyway.'  'A friend is someone who accepts your past, supports your present, and encourages your future.'  'A friend is someone who does things that count, but doesn't stop to count them.'
            As believers, we are friends with God.  He is the friend that does love us 'at all times.'  We can try to be a 'good' friend, but we will still disappoint our friends at times.  God loved us, even while we were still sinners.... there is no greater love than that.
            Today, I began the FBF Friend Plate of sharing both goodies and the fun of friendship.  Susan Franco was the first friend to receive the plate.  What fun friendship can be!
