It’s a Gift To Be Your Friend

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.

As his Christmas Poem as his present

Resting In Your Palms

Heaven and the heavenly host,
Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost,
and all the angels of God,
family, friends, and those forgotten.
All these wait for us to arrive,
waiting for our bodies to revive,
waiting to welcome us home,
never to be left again to roam,
waiting to rejoice and sing together,
praising our Lord Jesus forever.
What joys will we behold
that has not yet been told?
I long for the reunion and greeting,
especially when I ponder all that I’ll be meeting.
Thank You, Jesus, for hope in the Psalms.
Thank You for protection resting in your palms.
