Happy Monday. Do you have a friend?
“There is nothing on earth more to be prized than true friendship.” –Thomas Aquinas
My heart is sad today at the death of a friend. Her name: Bootsie Mullins.
I really don’t know how long ago we became friends, it just happened.
Someone has said that in friendships, hearts relate to each other.
At first, we saw each other frequently, at church, other activities. For the last twelve years, I saw her only once or twice, as I moved a thousand miles away.
But time and distance could not take away the love that developed in my heart, and I believe, in hers.
I’ve prayed for her, thought about her, and as the report came of serious health issues, I wanted her to know I cared.
I can’t tell her now.
Do they know you really care?
This poem has been in my files for quite some time. I believe it is worthy of our thought.
If I Knew
“If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
To stop and say, ‘I love you,’
Instead of assuming you know it.
If I knew it would be the last time,
I would be there to share your day.
Well, I’m sure you’ll have many more,
So I can just let this one slip away.
There will always be another day
To make up for an oversight,
And we always get a second chance
To make every thing right.
But in case I might be wrong,
And today is all I get,
I’d like to say, ‘I love you,’
And hope you won’t forget.
So if you’re waiting for tomorrow,
Why not do it today?
For if tomorrow doesn’t come,
You’ll have no regrets today.”
“Make sure thy friend.” Proverbs 6:3
