God Blessed Morning Family!
It is said that once you deem someone a Friend that the relationship takes on a different perspective for now you have not only extended trust but also love. For a Friend is no longer a stranger and has the opportunity to bond with you on a personal level. Some of us treat friendships casually for they can withstand a lot of positive and negative emotional wavelengths. Although a Friend is not a blood relative the relationship bond is at times deemed to be stronger for we allow our friends to do and say things we may not tolerate from family, for we see friendship as a selective choice and family as a legal, ceremonial or biological connection. When we deem someone a friend we place them at a level in which they are seen as someone that is trustworthy for we feel that we are kindred spirits through a connection that is ordained. For it is believed that friendship is not a coincidence but a relationship that was destined. "A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother." Proverbs 18:24 For friends are not bound by blood but by a brotherly love that is on a Spiritual level that makes us our Brother's Keeper. Friendships are not coincidental nor are they casual, for they are on a level in which once formed they become part of the physical and Spiritual journey and are irreplaceable for no two are the same, and although they may serve a specific moment in time they are not seasonal but eternal for they are not a physical bond but one of Spirit. Be Still And Know That I Am. Amen. Hallelujah.
