The love of my life is the love between friends. (Source Unknown)

There are many ways to describe love and to express this strong emotion. Romantic love often leads to a lifetime commitment of marriage, and many would testify that their spouse is not only the love of their life but their very best friend. Others realize that there is a bond between close friends that is an unusually strong support in life’s trials and difficulties. Friends are invaluable.

A friend is always loyal . . .. The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense. Proverbs 17:17; 27:9)
