friends in Christ

“A faithful friend is a sturdy shelter: he that has found one has found a treasure.” Sirach 6:14

I have found very faithful friends in my life. Or rather, I believe God has placed them in my life. I am so blessed.

After going to young adult group tonight, I realize that it is truly a gift to have a friend of whom you are be able to say that you can:

A. connect deeply regarding your shared meaning and purpose: loving Jesus AND

B. just laugh and laugh and smile away together.

What a gift to be able to say that I can share my deepest concerns as well as my most uplifting joys with my best friends! True friends can see the darkness you experiences as well as the Light. True friends try to bring you to the Light all the time– or to sit with you when you feel like Jesus is so far.

Myself and a couple of my best friends last summer! The friend on the right is in a religious order right now, and I cannot wait to hear from her after Lent is over! 🙂
