Friendships Are Easy to End, Hard t

Friendships Are Easy to End…

 Hard To Rebuild!


When it comes to friendships,

 many are quick to “end it.”

I seldom see very few that try to “rebuild it.”


A harsh word said.  An angry thought spoken.

Can often cause many friendships

 to be broken!


Scripture says; “be quick to listen.” 

“Slow to speak.”

May we speak God’s grace

each day of the week.


A broken friendship can cause

 feelings of anger.

And soon, our “ex-friend.” 

becomes a “stranger.”


God will not give you a trophy

 for those you’ve “un-friended.”

May you ask for his love to have your

 hearts “amended.”


Broken friendship can have

 many repercussions.

Often leading to gossip and

 back-biting discussions.


May we seek God’s forgiveness

 to come back together.

May his love be the glue that

 binds you forever!


Life is too short to end a friendship.

The person you left, could be going

 through a hardship!


May the peace and love of Christ

 bind us as one!

And bring a healing to every parent,

daughter and son!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
