This celebration will be in
honor of National Friendship Day-created by Congress in
1935 to honor the special meaning of friendship.
"A friend is a person with whom I may be sincere.
Before him I may think aloud."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 - 1882)~
A Prayer for a Friend Dear
if I could only be,
Worthy of one wish from Thee.
I would not ask for wealth or fame--
For I have more in Jesus' Name;
I would nor ask for homes and lands--
My treasures lie in Jesus' hands;
I would not ask for health or food--
For thou dost give me all that's good;
But I would that I could see,
Just how the greatest friend to be
To one Thou'st given me to love,
Both here and in our Home above--
That, Lord, the love Thou hast given me
Might fill his life and soul, that he
Will never question, never fear,
My love for him is just veneer--
But man each time I clasp his hand,
Feel friendship true, and understand
That of Thy many gifts I see,
He is a precious one to me.
new Friends but keep the old;
One is Silver but the other Gold. ~Author
Here are some ideas for you
to do on Friendship Day:
Call a friend or
send them a phone card to call you
Watch 3 of your
favorite "girls" videos with your
friend. Maybe "Gone with the Wind";
"Sabrina" or "A Walk in the
Clouds". Don't forget the popcorn!!
Write a letter or
poem about your friendship and consider framing
it for them.
Put on some old
records and reminisce about the old days.
How about a day of
pampering yourselves? - Maybe a haircut and
manicure or even a massage.
