A Letter From Jesus

A few years ago, my grandmother, Christy Virgil, gave me this piece of paper from a magazine, that my great-great grandmother had.

Dear Friend,
I just had to send a note to tell you how much I love and care for you. I saw you yesterday as you were walking with your friend. I waited all day hoping you would want to talk to me. As evening came, I gave you a sunset to close your day and a breeze to rest you - And I waited. You never came. Sure, it hurts me - But I still love you because you are my Friend. I saw you fall asleep last night and longed to touch you, so I spilled moonlight on your face. Again I waited to rush down so we could talk. I have so many gifts for you! You got up late and rushed off to work. My tears were in the rain. Today you looked so sad - so all alone. It made my heart ache because I understand. My friends let me down and hurt me many times too, but I loved them. If you would only listen to me! I LOVE YOU! I try to tell you in the blue sky and in the quiet green grass. I whisper in the leaves in the trees and breathe it in the flowers. I shout to you in the mountain streams and give the birds love songs to sing. I clothe you in the warm sunshine and sweeten the air with nature scents. My LOVE for you is deeper than the ocean and bigger than the biggest want or need in your head. If you only knew how much I want to talk and walk with you. I know how hard it is on earth. I really know! And I want to help you. I want you to meet my Father. He wants to help you too. My Father is that way, you know. Just call me - ask me - talk with me! Please don't forget me! I have so much to share with you! All right, okay. I won't bother you any more, YOU are free to choose ME. It's your decision: I have chosen you, and because of this, I will wait, and wait, because...I LOVE YOU.
Your friend,JESUS.

I love this. And I hope you do too.
