JOY For Our Journey~~Joys of Friendship

I've been thinking a lot about friendship lately,
and I believe it is truly one of the greatest
sources of joy in this life.
I mean, can you imagine a life without friends?
I certainly can't!
I found these beautiful quotes and hope that by
reading them you will have a renewed
sense of awe and appreciation for those special friends
God has gifted you with!!
"A friend loves at all times..." Proverbs 17:17

"Friendship doubles your joys, and divides your sorrows." ~ author unknown

"Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never ever the same." ~ Flavia Weedn

"Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light." ~ Albert Schweitzer

"A friend is someone who sings your heart's song back to you when you have forgotten the words." ~ David Coppola, Ph.D.

Stay is a charming word in a friend's vocabulary.
~Louisa May Alcott

Treat your friends as you do your pictures,
and place them in their best light.
~Jennie Jerome Churchill

Please know how very much I appreciate each of you!

You add JOY to my days and it is my delight

to call you FRIENDS!!

Have a glorious week!
Hugs, Becky


  1. What a beautiful post. I loved the friendship quotes and the sweet photo.

    Have a Marvelous Monday
    from the Raggedy Roberta Anne

  2. Becky, I proud to call you friend, for we all have days we need to have our heart song sung back to to us, even if its coming far away up in the wind, streaming through the lovely branches of a specail tree. Just do not let the light be blocked from the the branches of the tree. For with the light coming in when the wind blows the branches around, we can hear our friendship heart song.

  3. Oh Becky, do you know the sentiments are returned one-hundred fold!?!

    Sometimes this bloggy world gets a little overwhelming, but there are a few who make it all worthwhile, whose friendship I have come to appreciate and value so much, and you are one of those to me!

    Blessings to you today, dear friend. Hoping your week is off to a good start and keeping you in prayer.


  4. Love the new layout!!! Feel the same way!! Love being friends with you and the rest of my blogging buddies. Hope you're having a Joyful Monday!!!

  5. Friends are just the best! And your encouraging words make your friends feel so warm and happy inside! You are truly a blessing, Becky!

    These words of wisdom about friends are truly something to tuck away and read over and over.
    Thanks for these!

    AND and I LOVE what you've done to the place!! So cheery! I spy your phots on the side and you look way too young to be a nana!:)

    Have a great week!


  6. Hi there, I just ran across your blog through Lois and I've really enjoyed browsing through it!

    We homeschool also - I always enjoy "meeting" a fellow homeschooling family. Stop by and say hello!


  7. Dearest Becky, what a gorgeous, thoughtful, uplifting post. I began blogging last year, never for one minute thinking anyone would read what I wrote, or want to, or that I would come to feel part of a community of friends who's thoughts I would want to share, and who I would miss when they weren't around. You are one of the kindest, most generous spirited people on the internet, and have always managed to make me feel so glad that I decided to start blogging. I hope that you always feel as blessed and treasured as a friend as you make those who read your words feel when we visit. You are a friend to many, including those many miles away who feel so glad to have 'met' you!

    Love & friendship, Fiona x

    I am still a little of the whole coupon saving thing....I need coupons for produce! :) I really think that I will not be able to find coupons for much of the food I buy, but maybe I can save on paper products and toiletres.
