    Friendship flowers by increased awareness
     
    "I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master’s business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you." - John 15:15
     
    Friendship flowers because we are committed
     
    "You are my friends if you do what I command." - John 15:14
    "You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you." - John 15:16

    Fruit of Friendship – Friendship Planted
     
    Life is sweet just because of the friends we have made
    and the things which in common we share;
    We want to live on not because of ourselves,
    but because of the people who care;
    It's giving and doing for somebody else-
    on that all life's splendor depends,
    And the joy of this world, when you've summed it all up,
    is found in the making of friends.
