A friend loves at all times,
    and a brother is born for a time of adversity. —Proverbs 17:17

It is something—it can be everything—to have found a fellow bird with whom you can sit among the rafters while the drinking and boasting and reciting and fighting go on below; a fellow bird whom you can look after and find bugs and seeds for; one who will patch your bruises and straighten your ruffled feathers and mourn over your hurts when you accidentally fly into something you can’t handle. —Wallace Stegner, The Spectator Bird

Give us kind traveling companions, O Lord, brothers and sisters with whom to sing and dance, struggle and strain. Give us kind traveling partners, Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
