A LETTER FROM JESUS

My Precious Friend,

I am sending you this letter by way of one of my disciples.  I just wanted to let you know how much I love and care about you and how I greatly desire to become a meaningful part of your life. 

This morning when you awoke, I was already there with you in the Light of my beautiful sunshine that filled your room.  I was hoping that you would say good morning to me; but you didn’t.  So, I thought maybe it was a little too early in the day for you to notice me.

Again, I tried to get your attention when you stepped out of your door.  I kissed your face with a soft gentle breeze.  I breathed upon you my fragrant sweet breath scented with flowers.  Then I sang you a love song through the birds in the trees.  You just walked right past me.

Later, in the day.  I watched over you as you were talking with some of your friends.  Oh! How I wished that you would talk with me also.  I waited and waited, but you just went along your way. 

This afternoon, I sent you a refreshing shower and glistened to you from each raindrop.  I even shouted to you a time or two with thunder trying to get your attention.  Then I painted you a lovely rainbow amid my fluffy white clouds.  I just knew you would see me then, but you were unaware of my presence.

This evening to close your day, I sent you a beautiful sunset.  After that, I winked at you a thousand times through my stars, hoping that you would see me and wink back.  You never did.

Tonight, when you went to bed, I spilled moonlight upon your face to let you know that I was there with you.  I was hoping that you would talk to me a little while before you went to sleep.  You never said a word.  It hurt me deeply; however, I continued to watch over you all through the night thinking that maybe, just maybe, you would say hello to me in the morning.

Each and every day, I have revealed myself to you in many strange and wondrous ways hoping that you would accept me as your shepherd.  For I am the only one that can supply you with all your needs.  My love for you is deeper than the deepest ocean and bigger than the greatest blue sky.  I have so very much to give to you and share with you.  Please let me hear from you soon.

Your loving friend forever,

Jesus
