“Friendship”

Standard


In Mark Nepo’s daily reading today he says, “Honest friends are doorways to our souls, and loving friends are the grasses that soften the world. It is no mistake that The German root of the word friendship means, “place of high safety.” This safety opens us to God. As Cicero said, “A friend is a second self.” And As Sant Martin said, “My friends are the beings through whom God loves me.”

Wow! When you think of it that way…could there be any greater or simpler ambition then to be a friend.

I've come to know myself as a unique individual expression of God. I love that there is only one me in all the world. I'm still learning, growing and experiencing all the wonders that this life has to teach me. I live, move, and breath in this shell of a body God has given me, and together we travel. He see's, hears, taste, smells and touches all that I experience through the individual personality that I am. I believe He exist in each one of us for the same purpose. I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. I love to write and express the many thoughts that swim around in my head. I love to read. I'm a creative crafty kind of person. I love being in my garden. I've been working on my families genecology for 25 years. I think that about sums me up for now.
