A True Friend

"A true friend is someone that knows the song of your soul, and sings it back to you when you have forgotten the words."- Anonymous

I love the quote above! True friends are hard to come by.  I am blessed to have some of those "true friends" in my life.  My friend Jasmine is one of those true friends.  She and I have been friends for almost thirty years!!!  We met at Baptist College (now Charleston Southern University) in Charleston SC.  We've come a long way since the '80's!

Jasmine has been that kind of friend to me that knows the song of my heart and reminds me to "tune my heart to sing His praise".  When I am negative, she helps me see the positive.  When I am stressed out she reminds me to focus on the One who calms the storms.  
And to top it off, she loves my children! They've started calling her "Aunt" Jasmine!

I hope you are blessed today to have a friend or friends like that in your life.  If not, try being that kind of friend to someone else.
Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion. But woe to the one who falls when there is not another to lift him up. Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
Thinking about friends and friendship, here is a cute video!  We might just have to do this routine!!!
