Picture of a rose carved into a rock

Dear Friend,

How are you? I just had to send you this letter and tell you how much I love and care about you.  I saw you yesterday as you were walking with friends. I waited all day hoping you would talk to me also. As evening drew near I gave you a sunset to close your day, a cool breeze to rest you, and I waited. You never came. Oh, 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 face. Again I waited, wanting to rush down so we could talk. I have so many gifts for you.

You awakened late and rushed off for the day--my tears were in the rain. Today you look so sad, so alone. It makes my heart ache because I understand. My friends let me down and hurt me many times, too, but I love you. I try to tell you in the quiet green grass. I whisper it in the leaves and the trees, and give 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 have.

We will spend eternity together in heaven. I know how hard it is on earth, I really know....

My Father wants to help you, too.  He's that way you know.

Just call on Me, ask Me, talk to Me, but if you don't call, you'll see....I have chosen you and because of this I will wait....because I love you!

Your Friend,
