“Friendships multiply joys and divide griefs.” H.G. Bohn.
In a few weeks I’m attending my 40th High School Reunion. I will see friends I haven’t seen in years. We will laugh, tell stories and may even shed a few tears as we recall memories and catch up on our lives. September is the official Friendship Month, but I couldn’t wait until then to celebrate and honor my friendships!
One of the ways I love to celebrate my friends is to send scriptures and/or quotes in cards or emails. I want to let my friends know how much I cherish and value them. I’ve listed a few of my favorites below for you to use with your friends. For more ideas on how to nurture your friendships, click here: https://ibloom.co/blog/how-to-nurture-your-friendships/
Scriptures and Quotes to celebrate friendships:
“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” C.S. Lewis
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for the servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you.” John 15:12-15
”Friendship is a sheltering tree.” Samuel Coleridge
“Love one another with brotherly affection. Out do one another in showing honor.” Romans 12:10
“A friend is someone who understands your past, believes in your future, and accepts you just the way you are.” Unknown
“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity.” Proverbs 17:17
”A friend is one of the nicest things you can have, and one of the best things you can be.” Douglas Pagels
