I was out shopping with my 5-year-old the other day, and I received something from a stranger. Most of the time when I get handed little pieces of paper , I say thank you and as soon as their backs are turned I throw them away. But there was something telling me to hold on this little piece of paper that this stranger handed to me, and I am glad I did. Now please do not take me a superstitious person, because I am very far from it. So I guess I will call it a” coincidence”, I guess? After I read this letter, from this woman, I asked for a little bit of help so I could buy diapers and milk and some bread. I forgot earlier in the day my friend had bought me a dollar scratch off. Well I won $100.00 off of that one dollar scratch off. When I started reading this letter I did not look at the picture and I did not look at the other side , so I did not know that there was anything on the back including who it was from. I really thought that this woman was a stalker due to the first two paragraphs. I decided to keep it to read it to my mother and I can’t express to you how glad I am that I decided to keep it. So this is what it says. The title is ” A Love Letter” hence, the title of this post.
” Dear Friend,
How are you? I just had to send a note to tell you how much I love you and 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 also. As evening drew near, I gave you a sunset to close your day and a cool breeze to rest you– I waited. You never came. Oh yes, it hurts Me– but I still love you because I am your friend.
I saw you fall asleep last night and longed to touch your brow, so I spilled moonlight upon your pillow and face. Again I waited, wanting to rush down so we could talk. I have so many gifts for you! You awakened late and rushed off to work. My tears were in the rain.
Today you looked so sad–so all alone. It makes My heart ache because I understand. My friends let Me down and hurt Me many times too, but I love you.
Oh, if you would only listen to Me. I love you! I try to tell you in the blue sky and in the quiet grass. I whisper it in the leaves on the trees and breathe it in the colors of the flowers. I shout it to you in the mountain streams and give the birds love songs to sing. I clothe you with warm sunshine and perfume the air in nature scents. My love for you is deeper than the ocean and bigger than the biggest want or need in your head. Oh, if you only knew how much I want to walk and talk with you. We could spend an eternity together in heaven.
I know how hard it is on this 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! Oh, please don’t forget Me. I have so much to share with you!
All right, I won’t bother you any further. You are free to choose Me. It’s your decision. I have chosen you, and of this I will wait–because I love you!
Your Friend, Jesus”
