Quote(s) of the Week... on Friendship

Next Sunday is Friendship Day in Honduras, so we missionary ladies celebrated yesterday. In case you think that's strange, we only meet for prayer once a month, so since it was within a week, one of our Honduran colleagues suggested we honor our friendships this time.

We all brought a little gift to exchange and some of us brought quotations or thoughts related to friendship. Here's a sampling:

"A friend is someone who dares to ask the hard questions." (Marian H., SIL)

"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: 'What! You, too? Thought I was the only one.'" (C. S. Lewis, author)

"Only God can be a perfect friend, for he has promised, 'Thy word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.'" (Rose L., ReachAcross)

"I've discovered a way to stay friends forever --
There's really nothing to it.
I simply tell you what to do
And you do it!"
(Shel Silverstein, author of The Giving Tree)
