Love Letter From A Friend

Dear Friend,

          How are you?  I just had to send you this letter to tell you how much I love you and care about you.

prince-of-peace          I saw you yesterday as you were walking with your friends.  I waited all day, hoping you would walk and talk with me also.  As evening drew near, I gave you a sunset to close your day, and a cool breeze to rest you.  Then I waited, but you never came.  O yes, it hurt me, but I still love you because I am your friend.

          I saw you fall asleep last night, and I longed to touch your brow, so I spilled moonlight upon your pillow and your face… Again I waited, wanting to rush down so we could talk.   I have so many gifts for you.  

          You awakened late this morning and rushed off for the day.  My tears were in the rain.  Today you looked so sad, so alone.  It makes my heart ache because I understand.  My friends let me down and hurt me many times, but I love you.

          I try to tell you in the quiet green grass.  I whisper it in the leaves and trees, and breathe it in the color of the flowers.  I shout it to you in the mountain streams, and give the birds love songs to sing.  I clothe you with warm sunshine and perfume the air.

          My love for you is deeper than the oceans and bigger than the biggest want or need you could ever have.  We will spend eternity in heaven.  I know how hard it is on earth.  I really know, because I was there, and I want to help you.  My Father wants to help you, too.  He’s that way, you know.

          Just call me, ask me, talk to me.  It is your decision…I have chosen you, and because of this I will wait… Because I love you.           

Your Friend,

Jesus

 

Note: This is not my work and the original author is unknown.  It has been circulating for years yet very few people have heard it at all.  I first heard it in 1982, read with a southern accent by Dr. Wayne Martin on a cassette tape recording, and was so impressed that it stayed in my head and in my heart for years.  I was thrilled to rediscover it all over again a year ago on the internet and share it whenever I can.  Now I have shared it with you.  I hope it touches you like it did me.  If it does, then please use the buttons below to share it with your friends.
