What’s Your Rush?

Driving fast down time’s hectic road

Passing new sign’s life-changing mode


Hey busy people, “What’s your rush?”

Best to paint life with brand new brush


Slow self down, before passing by

More to life than hello and bye


Coffee’s better with second cup

Take time to really size life up


Spend precious moments, call your friend

Each minute pays big dividends


Look around, lend others your hand

Playing music on life’s bandstand


Time spent with young children at play

Ageless, feeling younger each day


Neighborhood walk with man’s best friend

Rounding out life’s perfect weekend


Share love with your special someone

Lighting rainbows with rising sun


Cruisin’ along life’s peaceful street

No rush now, enjoying each treat

Destiny unites true friends

Transforming life with its spark

Sincere friendship fills two hearts

Never alone in the dark


Never take friends for granted

Honesty, laughter, and tears

Staying connected insures

Treasures shared over the years


Sharing life’s pain, healing wounds

Long-lasting friendship endures

Glue holding life together

Truly caring, reassures


Always count on each other

Offering silent support

“Forever minutes” share love

Caring never falling short


Life travels through forest trails

Friends together, all these years

Brings us home through darkest times

Greatest love when friendship cheers

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another:  “What, you too?  I thought I was the only one.”

From Proverbs 18:24:  “Some friends play at friendship but a true friend sticks closer than one’s nearest kin.”

Choose your friends carefully and wisely.  Gossips usually gravitate to gossips.  Rebels run with rebels.  You want to be wise?  Choose wise friends.

From 1 Corinthians 15:33:  “Do not be deceived:  Bad company ruins good morals.”

When you’re hungry and weary and thirsty in the wilderness, that’s when a friend comes through.  You don’t even need to ask.  They just do it.  This is faith in action.

From Proverbs 17:17:  “A friend loves at all times, and kinsfolk are born to share adversity.”
