Jesus' Letter

If Jesus wrote you a letter what might it say?

Maybe it would go like this:

"Dear Friend.  .  .

I just had to send a note to tell you how much I love you and care about you.  I saw you yesterday as you were walking with your friends.  I waited all day hoping you would want to talk with me also.  As evening drew near, I gave you a sunset to close your day and a cool breeze the rest you.  And I waited.  But you never came.  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 on your pillow and your face.  Again I waited, wanting to rush down so that we could talk.  I have so many gifts for you.  But you awakened late the next day and rushed off to work.  My tears were in the rain.

Today you looked so sad, so all alone.  It makes my heart ache because I understand.  My friends let me down and hurt me so many times, too.  But I love you.  Oh, if you would only listen to me.  I really love you.  I try to tell you in the blue sky and in the quiet green grass.  I whisper it in the leaves on the trees and breathe it in the colors 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 with nature’s scents.  My love for you is deeper than the oceans and bigger than the biggest want or need in your heart.

I wish you only knew how much I want to help you.  I want you to meet my Father.  He wants to help you, also.  My Father is that way, you know.  Just call me, ask me, and talk with me.  I have so much to share with you.  But, I won’t hassle you.  I’ll wait because I love you.


Your friend,

Jesus"
