Synchronous Difficulties

I wait upon the Lord, my soul doth wait,
and in His word I hope.
~ Psalm 130:5 ~

Synchronous Difficulties

Chaos
Trials
Struggles abound
Healing heart exposed once more

Despair
Anxiety
Shifting sands
Perfect illusions shattered

Circumstances
Tribulations
Exploding bombs
Rigid expectations shot down

Prayer
Friendship
Synchronous difficulties
Hoping for peace to come

Light
Strength
Never ending love
God’s mighty hand reaching within

Waiting
Listening
Splintered heart
Standing with bated breath
Be still and know the loving God

Love or friendship?

Today a friend came to visit my church, which was indeed wonderful.  Later in the day that same friend came by to play cards, eat yummy food, and enjoy some fun with my son, another friend, and me.  During the card game, one of the gentlemen started a round if inquisitive questions meant to help pass the time between turns….which I thought pretty cool.

Anywho, the first question out of the gate was intriguing: which comes first, love or friendship, and why?

As we all proceeded to respond, it got me thinking that I should pose a question of the week here which will have the potential to spark some interesting responses and conversations.  Two ground rules….1) be respectful of all responses, even if you don’t agree, and 2) keep the language clean.

With that said, the question that started the evening off tonight is the very same one I bring to you…let the thoughts begin to fly!

Which comes first, love or friendship, and why?
