My Friend...

A Friend is a Treasure
A friend is someone we turn to,
when our spirits need a lift.
A friend is someone we treasure,
for our friendship is a gift.
A friend is someone who fills our lives,
with beauty, joy and grace.
And make the world we live in,
a better and happier place.

(This is a post from Melissa.) I want to wish my dear friend Katy a very happy birthday! She turns 29 today. We met over in England when i was in Bible school. She was in the same missionary training class as Geoff. We had lots of fun times and became really good friends that year.
Katy now lives in Idaho with her husband and daughter, Florence. They are expecting their second baby in two months!
Below is a picture of Katy, Esther and I from when we were in England together. These two friends are very special to me even though we live so far apart and don't get to see each other very often. I thank God for their friendships.

Everyone should have a friend like you
You are so much fun to be with
And you are such a good person
You crack me up with laughter
And touch my heart with your kindness
You have a wonderful ability
To know when to offer advice
And when to sit in quiet support
Time after time
You've come to my rescue
And brightened so many
Of my routine days
And time after time
I've realized how fortunate
I am that my life includes you
I really do believe that
Everybody should have a friend like you.
