There are friends who pretent to be friends, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother. ~Proverbs 18:24~

My Child,

>From the pioneer woman who endured a solitary life, to the female corporate executive who clawed her way up through the ranks of a male-dominated system, self-sufficient women are often viewed as heroes. But I didn't create you to exist in a vaccum. I created you to need and enjoy other people. There's a place in you that will remain empty and incomplete until you know the companionship of friends.

The best source of true friendships should be the body of Christ, the family of my Son. And the best friend you'll ever have is Jesus himself. So don't go it alone, my child. Reach out to others when you're lonely. And grasp the hand of friendship when it's offered to you.

Your Friend and Father,
