In our hurried world, we can sometimes forget to thank God for those special people He's placed in our lives. Maybe it's a friend who's always there when you need a shoulder or one who seems to make you laugh, even on the darkest of days. Is there a neighbor who makes the time to help when there is a need? Thank Him for allowing your life to be touched by those friends. Thank Him for the important role they each play in your life. Thank Him for calling you His friend. Ask Him how you can express your gratitude in a unique way to those who positively impact your life. If you're in need of friendship, thank God in advance for sending someone special your way. Ask Him to remove the barrier that has prevented the gift of authentic lifelong friendship in your life.
