What does it mean to walk with a friend?


What does it mean to walk with a friend?

It is made up of many things.

Being there when life’s struggles descend

A hand to hold when hope is hard to see

One who listens with their heart

On whom you can depend

Who sees you at your worst and cares just the same

Takes you outside of your situation

Encourages you to laugh in order to uplift you

Will say the difficult thing to try to help you

But I think you truly walk with a friend when

you say, “I’m there. I always will be.”

Kevin and Karen Osborne are Christian pastoral counsellors and psychotherapists. Kevin is studying to become a chaplain and professor of Psychology specializing in Pastoral Theology. We have started You Can Hope Again Counselling. Karen enjoys doing cross-stitch while I like writing and singing songs. Karen makes me laugh when she sings the kitty bed-time song saying, “It’s that time. It’s the bestest kitty time of the day!” Kevin enjoys teasing the kitties and making them do kitty dances with music. Their kitty, Catherine, loves it when kitty daddeh sings All Things Bright and Beautiful. Kevin likes doing impressions. He tells children’s stories and helps others with their problems using his hand puppet, Dr. Teddy, who is a therapy bear. He is a partner with us in our counselling practice.We are available to assist with worship and preaching to give busy pastors and ministers a much-needed break. We offer in-office, and phone counselling to anyone in the world.
