Day Ninety Five – Cultivate Friendship with Love

posted by Melanie Lutz

True friendship is a plant of slow growth, and must undergo and withstand the shocks of adversity, before it is entitled to the appellation.  –George Washington

Washington was a passionate gardener and spent many hours tending such at his home in Mount Vernon.  A man who did what was necessary and lead an army of miscreant dreamers to defeat the British Army and establish a new republic is nothing short of a bright light of inspiration.

The Bible offers two notable examples of friendships. The first is that between Jonathan and David, in which Jonathan walks a slender tightrope between his loyalty to his friend David and his devotion to his father Saul. The second is that between Ruth and Naomi, which gives us the beautiful verse that has been adopted by lovers but in its spirit holds the heart of true friendship….

“Wither thus goest, I will go, and where though lodgest, I will lodge; thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God, where thou diest, will I die, and there will be buried: the Lord do so to me and more also, if ought but death part thee and me.”

Samuel Johnson, who knew the fragility of friendship and said that “life has no pleasure higher or nobler than friendship,” tended to place friendship on the same level of significance as marriage a joining with a brother in a space of safety and joy and peace.

Take the time to appreciate the friends in your life.  Tell your friends often how much you love them and find occasion to celebrate them whenever you get a chance.
