The Front Porch: Neighbors
Neighbors are so special,
They bring blessings without end;
Especially when your neighbors,
Turn out to be dear friends.
The love of God covers you on every side,
in every direction, inside and out, over and under, in front and behind.
The impact of a true friend upon your life
is something that words can never fully express,
and something that your heart can never fully measure.
Be persuaded, that neither death with its voice of fear, nor life with its many cares, nor the attacks of the enemy which falsely accuse you, nor things present with their pressing claims, nor things to come with their dark shadows, nor the height of any mountains that stand in your way, nor the depths of a great trial that you may walk through, nor any person or circumstance which tries to quench your joy or rob you of your peace shall be able to move you away, by even a single inch, from the Love of God that covers and guards your life.
(Paraphrase of Romans 8:38-39)
Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.
-1 Corinthians 13:4-8 NIV
