Sustaining Meaningful Friendships  For women over 50 

Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘You too? I thought I was the only one.

— C.S Lewis

As Christians, we can find comfort in the knowledge that God designed us to thrive in community, including the friendships we build with other women. As we age, our friendships become more meaningful and important. For women over 50, the bond of friendship can be especially powerful.

But friendship is essential to our well-being. Friends provide us with companionship, support, and laughter. They help us through tough times and celebrate with us too. And they can make our lives joyful and more fulfilling. Am I right? 

Whether we’ve known each other for decades or have only recently met, our friendships give us a sense of belonging and support. We can encourage each other in our faith, share our struggles and joys, and offer a listening ear when needed.

As we navigate the challenges and changes that come with aging, our friendships can provide strength and resilience. We can pray for each other, share our wisdom and experiences, and have a warm hug and a shoulder to lean on in times of need.

Most importantly, our friendships can reflect the love and grace of Christ. As we build each other up, we can demonstrate His compassion and kindness to each other and the world around us.

So if you’re a woman over 50, take heart in the knowledge that your friendships are a gift from God. Cherish them, nurture them, and let them bring you closer to Him and each other.

Let’s look at a few reasons why women’s friendships are so meaningful later in life:

  • Friendship provides companionship. Friendship can give us someone to talk to, share our experiences with, and enjoy spending time with. As we get older, we may find ourselves spending more time alone. Our children may have grown up and moved away, and our spouse may be busy with work or other activities.
  • Friendship can provide support. Life can be tough, and having someone to lean on is always helpful. Our friends can offer us emotional support when we’re going through a tough time and can also help us celebrate our successes.
  • Friendship can help us to grow. As we grow older, we often find ourselves changing and evolving. Our friends can help us to see the world in new ways, and they can also help us to learn and grow as individuals.

So if you’re a woman over 50, take heart in the knowledge that your friendships are a gift from God. Cherish them, nurture them, and let them bring you closer to Him and each other.

Friendship is a deep oneness that develops when two people, speaking the truth in love to one another, journey together to the same horizon.

— Tim Keller
