It is right for me to feel this way about you all, because I hold you in my heart, for you are all partakers with me of grace, both in my imprisonment and in the defense and confirmation of the gospel.
True friendship is indeed a rare gift. It isn’t easy and sometimes it causes bleeding hearts. Jesus certainly bled for us. In Paul's letter to the Philippians you can almost feel the great love he had for his friends in Philippi. He knew that they were there even in the hardest days of imprisonment. And he also knew that the the reason this friendship was so strong was because it was anchored in God 's grace. Who do you hold in your heart today? Take time to tell them how grateful you are for their friendship. Maybe even send them a flower, a bleeding heart.
Thank you for the gift of friendship that is anchored in your grace. Thank you for friends that remind us of your love, even in hard times, and help us rekindle hope.
