Friends and homes are hard to come by,
Yet so wonderfully belong together.
Searching for either can lead us astray,
Or it can lead us to loving hearts.
Thank God that Jesus goes with us
No matter which place we find.
When you are down, He is there to cheer you up.
When you are happy, He is there to share in your joy.
And whether you have friends or find moments alone,
It is the greatest feeling to know He loves you always.
I pray that you know Jesus is your friend,
And that you are always welcome in His home.
Meanwhile, God allows people like me the privilege
To be your friend and welcome you into my home.
What a gift for me to have been allowed to know such a friend.
I thank Him for the honor.
Please feel free to be my friend
In my heart, home, or anywhere… any time.
