Rocks need no windows …
Most rocks are the same
outside-in or inside-out
I gave an igneous rock away once.
"Platonic" was our friendship.
"Grant it" it is early in the morning,
but I need to get up and write you a note.
Hi! Trust all is going well …
You know, it is good to wake up with a
friend on your mind.
It is peaceful to return to sleep, your
mind at ease … the thought is penned
Friends are windows to ourselves.
We in the Twentieth Century have many windows.
* Space window
* Of opportunity
* Microsoft Windows
The window that is most difficult to find is
the window into the life of a friend.
The heart of another is a "Use No Crow-Bar Zone."
The tenderness of lives touching is the
Lonely is a night alone in the snow …
Yet, never as alone as with a friend
who does not understand.
Lonely is the time in the quiet of the snow …
But, not near the alone as caused by the
silence of a friend who looked passed you …
beyond to someone else.
While we sit at our window looking at the
world, be sure to remember that we
"Have a friend who sticks closer that a brother."
All that our friends need and
all that we need is to share
the life God has so graciously given us
with other …
We need to sit and wait for them to open their
life's window …
We must never force entry!!!
Remembering, that Life is Fragile … Private …
