Thank you to My Friend

Dear friend,

Thank you for taking the time for me

For listening to me even though you have heard it all before

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.  John 15:13 

For being a shoulder when need to cry

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 2Corinthians 1:3-4 

For your honesty even though I may not always agree

Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart, and the pleasantness of a friend springs from their heartfelt advice. Proverbs 27:9

For your patience

And we urge you, brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone 1Thessalonians 5:14

For your kindness and encouragement

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, Hebrews 10:24 

For loving me for who I am

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God. Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 1 John 4:7

You have no idea how big of a difference you make in my life 

As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.  Proverbs 27:17

I just want to say thank you, your friendship means so much to me

Love, T

Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: 10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.  Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
