A number of years ago, I came across this prayer whose author seemed to look deeply into my heart. I wish that I could give her credit but unfortunately she is anonymous. I share it below in the hope that you will share it with your “heart friends”
“How generous is God that She has given me those few and special women who are the true friends of my heart. How She must love me that She has let us find each other upon this crowded earth.
We are drawn to each other as if by some mystical force. We recognize each other at once. We are sisters of the spirit, who understand each other instinctively. There is no blood between us, no common family history. Yet there are no barriers of background, or even age. Older, younger, rich, poorer-no matter. We speak the same language, we have come together in a special moment of time, and the sense of union we feel will last throughout eternity.
How generous is God that She has given me so many other women I can call friends. Dear, good, life-enriching women who add flavor, value, delight. I would be the poorer without them.
Yet surely God’s true concern for us Her children, is to lead us to these rare and special few. the one’s who call out to us from the crowds, who hold fast to us through trials, triumphs, long separations.
The friends with whom the heart feels joyfully at home.”
