Kingdom Friendships

Que Hannah Montana’s “True friend” or Toy Story’s “You’ve got a friend in me” to the soundtrack of this post. Friendships To some of us, that word brings pure joy and a flashback into some of the best memories. To others, it only brings back the thoughts of being betrayed or even forgotten. To some, it is a concept that comes and goes all too quickly. To some of us, it is something we long to have yet can’t seem to find. If we aren’t careful friendships can become self-oriented.
