FRIENDSHIP

“True friendship comes when silence between two people is comfortable.”

~ Dave Tyson Gentry ~

A spiritual practice that awakens serenity includes silence and stillness. “Be still and know that I am God.” True friendship is Divine. It is a special love that binds two hearts as one. It is the opposite of disease.

Friendship is necessary to recovery and involves sharing feelings. Often the feelings are silent: unspoken emotions, cherished moments that exist in wordlessness. As a recovering alcoholic, I have a thousand friends who attest to the silent witness of love by simply being there. They are my allies. They are my friends.

Sobriety allows me to communicate without speech when the situation calls for it. Seeing God in the eyes of others tells me more than words could ever say.

Thank You for the joy of friendship that grows in silence.
