Barbara's Entourage

tulips Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends; for all things that I have heard of my Father I have made known unto you. John 15:15 KJV


Dear Friend,

How are you? I just had to send a note to tell you how much I care about you.

I saw you yesterday as you were talking with your friends. I waited all day hoping you would want to talk to Me too. I gave you a sunset to close your day and a cool summer breeze to rest you-and I waited. You never came. It hurt Me--but I still love you because I am your friend.

I saw you sleeping last night and longed to touch your brow so I spilled moonlight upon your face. Again I waited, wanting to rush down so we could talk. I have so many gifts for you! You awoke and rushed off to work. My tears were in the rain.

If you would only listen to Me! I Love You! I try to tell you in blue skies and in the quiet green grass. I whisper it in leaves on the trees and breathe it in colors of flowers, shout it out to you in mountain streams, give the birds love songs to sing. I clothe you with warm sunshine and perfume the air with nature scents. My love for you is deeper than the ocean, and bigger than the biggest need in your heart!

Ask Me! Talk with Me! Please don't forget Me. I have so much to share with you.

I won't hassle you any further. It is YOUR decision. I have chosen you and I will wait--

I Love You.
Your Friend,

Jesus should be our closest friend, but here in this life, we couldn't make it without some close friends. Or we would certainly be lonesome without any friends. Some people call any acquaintance a 'friend', but just what makes a friend for you?

My husband is my closest friend, but I also have a close friend whose name is Nancy. She sang with a quartet with which my son played lead quitar. I was not going to that church at the time, but on Easter Sunday, 1985, she and her husband stopped by our house and we met. She is the kind of person who never meets a stranger. Her husband thought she was crazy, barging in on strangers. But, thank the Lord, she did, and we became instant friends! She's the type, after you meet, you will never be the same. We don't get to see each other as much as we would like, but we certainly know that, if one of us was in need of prayer, encouragement, etc., the other would be right there on the ring of the phone!

I have also been privileged to become acquainted, hence CLOSE friends, with a cyber girl, named Peggie. We met through our respective homepages. I felt a kinship with her the instant I got on her Holy Spirit-filled pages, her 'home away from home', and it is filled with awesome love for our friend, JESUS. I believe GOD placed Peggie there in cyberspace just for me to meet. She has been an inspiration, a joy, and loads of laughs over the short time I have come to know her. We share many of the same interests, talk the 'same language', although I am from the South,(ALABAMA) and she is from the Midwest, I would think, being from Missouri. But God knows WHO needs to meet, knows the time and the place, and certainly knows our hearts. He has truly given me a friend in Peggie!
