~ ❀ Friends & Roses ❀ ~

I love spending time with a friend when there’s mutual

 acceptance, appreciation, and admiration present.

The spider and the rose don’t have a lot in common, 

but I suspect that they’re mutually beneficial. 

The spider isn’t envious of the rose’s beauty;

 nor is the rose threatened by the spider’s cleverness.

I love spending time with a friend who thinks the best of me

and wants the best for me.

I like honest friends. 

Friends that humbly warn me

 if they think I’m wandering off the path are treasures.

 I appreciate friends that aren’t defensive

if I lovingly warn them about straying too.

Is any pleasure on earth

as great as a circle of Christian friends by a good fire?

I’ve cheated when it comes to spending time with friends.

 I married my best friend.

What do you value most in a good friend?
