New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 4, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas Thursday May HeraldZeitung 7 ByCRISTABELLWEST Special to the HeraldZeitung Have any of you ever stopped to wonder how many true friends you have For centuries the saying You can count your friends on one has been popu laiyn many countries Why Could it be that we have justified the word friendship and allowed the true mean ing offriendship to become watered down or less meaningful When I speak of friendship I speak with bluntness of a true friendship With the honesty that must charac terize relations between friends who respect each oth er and who have each others interests at heart Most of you are quite familiar with the following phrase Friendship is really more precious than gold There is no man so poor that he is not rich if he has a friend and there is no man so rich that he is not poor without a Friendships are not easy to maintain however if you have a friend you have a real treasure To maintain your friendship look with your heart and see with understanding It once was said by Emerson The only way to have a friend is to be You can not expect a onesided relationship and have a true friendship As you receive kindness and understanding you must reciprocate In many cir cumstances you will not receive the same gestures of kindness from the friend whom you have helped how ever I assure you that your goodhearted intentions will be returned to you by other a total stranger Throughout the centuries writers have tried to define the essence of friendship Their efforts give us insights but it is only through our experiences in the true world and by having a friend that we come to have a true understanding of what friendship really is Friendship has no barriers and can not be broken by time or distance One thing we all know about friendship is that we all need it It is a precious thing to have Many people touch our lives but a few touch our hearts Friends are like are a dozen kind In life you will meet many kinds of friends however it is the people who go along with you in life and stay with you through the good times and bad that are invaluable These you will call unconditional friends When I call someone a friend I make a commit ment to that statement A commitment to honor respect and trust the full meaning of friendship One thing that should exist in friendship is the respect of the trust Lets plant our seeds of friendship and prepare your ground with patience clear the path with understanding plant your seed with care you cultivate your ground with kindness you depend on Gods word for light and you shower it with love Today I dedicate everything that I have mentioned to you to my friend LUCRECIA whom I have lost I remember her with not only sadness but happiness and satisfaction that we were true friends When we said hello she would say Hello The meaning of a Christian friendship ByCRISTABELLWEST Special to the HeraldZeitung In a Christian friendship one of the strongest points is that the relation ship can bring people together closer to long as you are willing to do it together and include everybody without being cliquish For example getting together to taste foreign foods praying together making robes and blankets for those in the hospital or making food baskets for the needy There is always the comfort felt when a friend says I will pray for I feel this should only be said if this is a true feeling In the book Beirrtj a Christian Friend it is said that in the Christian friendship there are not only two there are you count Jesus first your friend second and yourself last Do You Have True Friends Are you really a friend For exam ple if something wonderful happens to you today which of your friends do you go to first Who do you turn to with your most personal problems When you are recuperating in the hospital would that friend be there for you A friendship needs a checkup once in a like a medical check up Friendships that have stood the test Time and surely But old friends alas may die New friends must their place supply Cherish friendship in your New is good but old is best Make new friends but keep the old Those are silver these are gold Parry poet What fs Dining Entertainment ftp 0 Friendship Out there in the There are many who call themselves our friends We should be sure before it goes too That everyone understands Friendship is more than just knowing Or seeing them every day at work Its a commitment to really And being there if they have a need Its filling that Not because we have to but because we want to Its trying your best to see the best in Letting small differences be just that Small Sometimes it means telling them the Even though it may hurt Then being there to soothe the It seems to me that friendship is just another word for Love Masse greatest off these is love 1 Corinthians As gold more splendid from the fire appears thus friend ship brightens by the length off years There is no
