important friendship ingredients

 Maybe I’m a social anomaly, but from time to time, I have some struggles with friendships – thankfully, the older I get the less frequent these struggles seem to be, I think.  Nevertheless, it seems to me that there are a few essential ingredients for healthy friendships (as with all things, the best source for the pure, organic & untainted source for these ingredients comes from cultivating a rich, deep & surrendered relationship with the Triune God):

  • extract of high quality forgiveness
  • a robust stick of faithfulness – substituting frequency with faithfulness doesn’t work 🙂
  • several “ouches” of humility – ounces are too small ,)
  • a generous helping of humor – mostly with ourselves
  • a pound of patience is certainly very helpful 🙂
  • an infinite supply of genuine love – only available from our Heavenly Father, don’t substitute generic love as it will ruin the recipe

I’m sure I’ve missed some key ingredients, so I’d LOVE to get your input & of course, please feel free to add some spices, flavoring for sweet or savory ,)
