I look forward to joining in the free flow of word on Friday, linking up with Lisa-Jo and all her friends. Today we're talking about just that. The prompt; On Friends.
Eyes catch twinkling merry, laughter flung wide. Heavy sigh falls on warm heart, soft as a bed to rest upon. Shoulders pull in the harness of life, hands work together. Sharing life, need, toil.
Yet these relationships are pictures of what's to come. We smooth rough edges, learn to love. Until perfect friendship dawns, one in heart at last. Gathering together around the wedding feast, community, final victory won!
Together we will stand shoulder to shoulder, face to face with the great Friend. Having followed the signposts home.
"So now we can rejoice in our wonderful new relationship with God because our Lord Jesus Christ has made us friends of God." Romans 5:11
