It is all done in black and white.
The pictures are what drew me right to it. They are pictures from the past.....
ummm I would say the '40s and '50s. The pictures are on one page and a quote and scripture are on the opposite page. Some of the pictures were really funny, like the one of the lady in cat-eye glasses (even more ridiculous than the ones I wore in the second grade). The quote next to her photo says, "A friend sees you through rose-colored glasses."
The scripture next to that one is, "Love looks for the best." 1 Corinthians 13:7 (The Message)
I love this quote: "A friend is someone who can see through you and still enjoy the show."
How about this one: "A true friend is someone who has met your family and is sure you will overcome the law of genetics."
And: "A true friend will bend over backward to give you a lift."
The scripture for that one: "Encourage one another daily." Hebrews 3:13.
One more: " You can always tell a real friend: when you've just made a fool of yourself he doesn't feel you've done a permanent job." You should see the picture for that one!!!!
Friendship is a special gift, a treasure, a Divine set-up.
Have you ever had a friendship end? A friendship that was deep and wide, secure and steadfast?
It is very painful. I am not sure you ever really get over it. It is like a death only its not. It is just something that is lost, gone forever, no way to get it back.
Okay, if you read my last post you are probably saying "take the spoil". And that is right. But some battles leave wounds that take longer to heal than others. I do see great gain alongside my loss........and I do consider it my loss. I miss her........my confidant, my best friend. I thought she would always be there.........You know?
So if you are hurting today, I understand. May the Lord restore your fortune like He restored the fortunes of Job.
"Agree with each other, love each other, be deep-spirited friends." Philippians 2:2 The Message
