Friends Are Folks Wonderful To Know

Updated on May 6, 2013

Friends Are Folks Wonderful To Know

Friends are folks wonderful to know,

Real friends are kind faithful and true.

Friends will hear no word against you .

Truly, I want to be a friend , don't you?

True friends will hasten to your defense

When someone spreads about cruel lies.

A friend will not listen to that gossip,

For a true friend is much too wise.

When you feel the world's against you ,

A friend can cheer you as no other can

And we all know the greatest Friend

Is the Lord's most precious gift to man .

That Gift lives deep within our hearts,

He is the one friend Who never fails.

He listens to no false accusations

And He listens to no ones fairy tales.

Why aren't we like the Blessed Savior?

Why can't we be true friends to all?

Folks, don't play around with gossip.

Just like ice ,it can easily make us fall !

It is good to have friends in our lives,

We may not get to see them very often

but they are always in our heart.If we

have one or two really good friends we

are really blessed. Sometimes your best

friend may be your husband or wife,if

that is true then you are especially

blessed ,My best friend and I have been

friends for almost 60 years now. In fact

it was her idea that I put this poem on here.

We don't see it each other often but we

keep in touch via's so much better

than trying to write letters all of the time,

you can always put the computer to sleep

and go back later and finish,It is great

to have good friends in your life.!

      Hello Sweethearts2,My hug is coming back to you . It is good to meet you , stop by any time ,my door is always open to you. When I came on here I never dreamed I would find so many Christians on here, it is wonderful to meet so many who still believe in God. America seems to have lost all fear and love for God now. America needs prayer. With love and a hug, Clara

      Hello Sparklea,True friends that are forever friends can be the best kind,they know so much about you and yet they love you. maybe in spite of all of your flaws, we all seem to have them even if we don't even admit it even to our selves. New friends are wonderful too,and when the newness wears off they will be as comfortable as an old shoe. I will keep writing as long as God gives me the ideas to put on paper.Love,Clara

      voted up and beautiful! I am still friends with a girl I met in kindergarten! True friends understand us, even if we are not in contact for awhile. When we do get together, we just pick up where we left off.

      A wonderful hub about friendship. KEEP WRITING. You ARE not only helping people you are inspiring and motivating them! God Bless, Sparklea :)

      Hello Sheila , thank you for your nice comment.Up until tonight I did not even know there was a, "Hug of the Day ".I wondered what happened when I turned Yahoo on and saw all of the comments and new followers and 2 fan mail , but I didn't know until I came on what had happened. That was very nice of Jackie and Faith. I really appreciate it .I said that I was beginning to wonder if I really was doing any good on here. After today I feel like I might be helping some people .That is why God gives them to me to pass them on to people who needs them. And thanks for the hug , I can use a few of them . Love,Clara

      Hello Maria , up until today I had no idea there was a , "Hug of the Day", until I saw it on here, that must be the reason that I had 2 fan mail, I think it was 7 new followers and 6 new comments today, I was surprised and curious ,too. At times I have wondered if I really was doing much good on here . It makes me feel good that I might be helping a little ,with God in it the poems must be touching some people , thanks to all of you. Love, Clara
