I would like to ask you two questions, first: "What would you consider the highest honor that you could receive? The second question is: "What is the finest gift that you could give?"
Everyone's friend, Murphy
Answers to these questions can vary widely. But I can answer these questions very simply, I believe the highest honor I can receive is the friendship of another. I believe the finest gift that we can give to another is our friendship.
Bert, a buddy if ever there was one
When Jesus met with his disciples in the Upper Room he shared with them many things that eventful night. Jesus gave his disciples the highest honor they could ever receive. He took them into his heart and said, "You are my friends ...."

You know what I think characterizes a friend? It's one to whom you may pour out all the contents of your heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the gentlest of hands, or paws as it were, will take it and sift it, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.
I had to show you this. Look I am WET from head to tail! Yes I did it, got all the way in the water. True it was because I slipped and went in head first. But I did it, I SWAM!
Friendship is like a thief that was wearing a mask, and his gun was pointed toward a frightened victim. The robber is holding out a sack and saying, "Give me all of your valuables!" The victim then begins stuffing into the sack all of his friends.

I don't believe there is hardly anything in life, outside of the grace of God, that is more valuable than a friend. I can honestly say I don't know of anything more valuable, more blessed, more strengthening, and more encouraging than a true friend. A friend is someone who multiplies your joys and divides your grief.
While Logan swims I try to get this stick out of his way.
There is a scripture that talks about friends and sticks (I know, how cool is that?) it says "a friend who "sticks" closer than a brother." Did you know that the Indian word for friend translated into English means, "One who carries my sorrows on his back."
This would not be complete without a picture of my best gal pal Belle
Friendship is a loving relationship. You see, a real friend is not only someone who likes you, it's someone who loves you. Prov. 17:17 says, "A friend loves at all times..."
