Letter from a friend
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 on loving you.
As I watched you fall asleep last night, I wanted so much to touch you. I
spilled moonlight onto your face—trickling down your cheeks as so many
tears have. You didn’t think of me; I wanted so much to comfort you.
The next day I exploded a brilliant sunrise into a 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 meadows and in the blue sky. The wind whispers
my love throughout the treetops and spills it into the vibrant colors of
all the flowers. I shout it to you in the thunder of the great waterfalls
and compose love songs for 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 so.
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,
