" I wonder Why "

Updated on May 1, 2010

I have been just reading a hub from "Quill" and as I had this written some time back I thought it most aproppriate to put this here.

Who has Friends? Does everyone who has a friend knows the meaning of the word "FRIEND"

The Universal Dictionary states this.........

1. A person whom one knows, likes, and trusts, ( that is a strong word trust)

2. A favoured compnanion, ( mans' best friend is his dog)

3. An aquaintance or associate, ( or my Honourable friend)

4. One with whom is there through a struggle, or cause, a comrade.

5. One who supports, sympathises with, or patronises, a group. befriend, warm, comforting.

This is a quite a list to describe a friend.

Now as we all know that each of us do have friends here in hubpages, some have more friends than others. "I wonder why?"

Now to start this hub, it's all about friends, not about how many or how little in number that anyone has, its about do any of us can really say that any of our friends are true friends or are they there on our list to show others that we have many friends?

( I may get kick backs with this, But if you read all this you will see where I'm coming from, and that we should encourage more to come and write here.)

I have seen that some friends of mine have a large number of  friends, now do they ever get a large number of  comments back, or do the large number ever get to read the hub.

And when new comers write do we go and read what has been written, or do we think that we have so many friends now I don't have the time to read them all?

As we know that when some one reads and comment on our hub it is recorded, yes it looks good to see many come and read etc, but what about the new comer how many leave comments?        " I wonder why?"

Have you ever noticed that "YES" many friends do let you down.

BUT there is one "friend" that will NEVER let you down " I wonder why?"  well it is because he loves you so much.

He is there every day and every night, you will find comfort, peace, he will be with you as you go through stormy weather.

And the name of this FRIEND is JESUS

          Hebrews  13 : 5...God has said, " Never will I leave you ; never will I forsake you."

      I will confirm the above, James is a huge source of encouragement you can see his name all over HubPages and I have been blessed by his comments on numerous occasions. It is always good to read comments that are encouraging and so often the right comment at the right time can have an effect that is enough to turn things around and change your day. I enjoyed your hub very thought provoking.

      I agree with RevLady (as always). What a Friend we have in Jesus!

      On HubPages I have lots of "friends" or fans or followers. I got them one at a time. For the first six months I was on HubPages I read maybe forty Hubs a day by other people. This is how I made my presence known. After a while I no longer had time to do that, because I got too busy answering comments on my Hubs, but I still read maybe a dozen a day to stay involved in the community and encourage others.

      Raymond Hello Friend. (-; I really like this writing of yours very moving and it got this reader thinking!! Friends may let us down we may let friends down because we all fall short of The Glory of God. On my life journey with Christ I have learned much about friendship. Christ has opened my eyes to much. More will be revealed. Wisdom knowledge and discernment are gifts of the spirit. He Will show us things to come Raymond you are my friend and brother in Christ. Thank You for being there. Thank you for all your prayers. I am grateful our paths have crossed at the hubs.

      Blessings Galore

      I have a new hub 'When are you going to trust' When you have time check it out. NO hurry. Goodnight friend. tee hee GREAT hub.

      You are spot on Raymond. As a relatively newcomer to the net and hubpages my friends or followers are few. I do like to get back to each one and read their hubs also. However some have been at it for a long time and i find my time gets away. I love reading but my aim is to spread the word of Gods love first and foremost. For if we can save even one soul for Christ we are making friends. I love the fact that though we may never meet here on earth. All of us who love The Lord and share His love will in-fact meet in His Presence. Blessings friend and brother.
