Ecclesiastes 4:9â€“12 â€œTwo people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed. If one person falls, the other can reach out and help. But someone who falls alone is in real trouble. Likewise, two people lying close together can keep each other warm. But how can one be warm alone? A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.â€
â€œPortrait of a Friendâ€
I canâ€™t give solutions to all of lifeâ€™s problems, doubts, or fears. But I can listen to you, and together we will search for answers.
I canâ€™t change your past with all itâ€™s heartache and pain, nor the future with its untold stories. But I can be there now when you need me to care.
I canâ€™t keep your feet from stumbling. I can only offer my hand that you may grasp it and not fall.
Your joys, triumphs, successes, and happiness are not mine; Yet I can share in your laughter.
Your decisions in life are not mine to make, nor to judge; I can only support you, encourage you, and help you when you ask.
I canâ€™t prevent you from falling away from friendship, from your values, from me. I can only pray for you, talk to you and wait for you.
I canâ€™t give you boundaries which I have determined for you, But I can give you the room to change, room to grow, room to be yourself.
I canâ€™t keep your heart from breaking and hurting, But I can cry with you and help you pick up the pieces and put them back in place.
I canâ€™t tell you who you are. I can only love you and be your friend.Â Â ~ Unknown Author
