LETTER FROM A FRIEND

March 2, 2001

I just had to write to tell you how much I love you and care for you.

Yesterday, I saw you walking and laughing with your friends. I hoped that soon you'd want me to walk along with you, too. So, I painted you a sunset to close your day and whispered a cool breeze to refresh you. I waited - you never called - I just kept loving you.

As I watched you fall asleep last night, I wanted so much to touch you. I spilled moonlight on your face - trickling down your cheeks as so many tears have. You didn't even think of me, I wanted so much to comfort you. The next day I exploded a brilliant sunrise into glorious morning for you. But, you woke up late and rushed off to work - you didn't even notice.

My sky became cloudy and my tears were the rain. I love you. Oh, if you'd only listen. I really love you. I try to say it in the quiet of the green meadow and in the blue sky. The wind whispers my love throughout the treetops and spills it onto the vibrant colors of all the flowers. I shout it to you in the thunder of the great waterfalls and compose love songs for the birds to sing for you.

I warm you with the clothing of my sunshine and perfume the air with nature's sweet scent. My love for you is deeper than any ocean and greater than any need in your heart. If you'd only realize how I care.

My Dad sends His love. I want you to meet Him - He cares too. Fathers are just that way. So, please call on me soon. No matter how long it takes. I'll wait - because I love you.

Your Friend,
Jesus
