The touch of those we love

Knowing someone cares.

The melody of friendship’s song.

A beautiful melody.

He Will Nestle You In His Arms

For Karen Vidra and Karla Dorman

 

 

He will nestle you in his arms

Lord knows that you are strong.

He gives you that strength

Cause the battle is hard and long

But he will get you through

He will carry you on

When the battle makes you so weak

You can’t stand on your own.

He will nestle you in his arms

Cause Lord knows that you are strong.

He gives you the strength you need

Although the battle leaves you weak.

I see the strength in you

As you fight

Keep fighting

Be strong

I believe you will

Find the Victory in this battle.

With the Gentleness of a Friend




* For my bestest friend and the Sister of My Heart



You reached out


With the gentleness of a friend


When I was hurting you reached out to me


Forgetting your own battle


So hard, so strong.


I spent several weeks with you


The summer of 2002


You opened your home


Because we had been planning this trip


For so long


We were determined to finally


Meet face to face


You were already


The Sister of my Heart


And My Bestest Friend


We wrote letters


Twelve pages long


That first year


I was blessed with the sister


I had been praying a lifetime for


And when I was there with you


That bond grew.


Even then your health was


Rocky to see the least


And we never knew when


You would go into the hospital


And still I hear from you


And you tell me that you


Have had more visits in and out of the hospital


Several this year alone


And I pray for you


Long and hard


Wondering how much more you can go through


But you have never been one


To go poor me, poor me


That’s just not you


You live your life


For your husband and Son


And offer words of kindness


When I am down.


You tell me not to worry


That you are getting through


But you know that’s hard for me


And I often find myself crying out to the Lord


For your healing


I believe in the power of prayer


And so I pray everyday


Believing fully that one day


You will be touched


By our Lord and Savior


Our Healer.

Precious Person


For Sister Ruth

Photograph taken Sunday. March.18.07 . Living Waters Assembly of God In Jamestown…

It so touches me

When the Precious person

You are

Takes the time

To be with you.

It so touches me

When even in your own pain

You were able to reach out

To the Lord above.

I thank the Lord

Daily

For the precious person you

Are.

Rest In Him

For Karla Dorman

Psalms 62:5: “My soul, wait in silence for God only, for my hope is from Him. He only is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold, I shall not be shaken. On God my salvation and my glory rest. The rock of my strength, my refuge is in God. I trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your heart before Him; God is refuge for us.”

Rest in Him

When you’re feeling blue

He wants to give

That arm of comfort

To you.

Rest in Him

When you feel alone

His love for you

Is real and trie.

Rest in Him

And find comfort

In his presence.

You help define

Friendship

And all it’s beauty

Of unconditional love

Friendship

In all it’s glory

And I thank God daily

For the gifts

You’ve given me.

Friendships Built

Friendships built

On a foundation of faith

Shared joys and sorrows

Moments built

Together yet

Apart.

Friendships built

A gap between

Space and time

Linked together.

For Sarah D, Sarah T, Karen and Karla, those friendships old and new, what a blessing it is getting to know each and everyone of you…

I Want to Be That Comforting Arm

I want to be that

Comforting arm

The one you can turn

To

Knowing that I am here

Reaching out

Trying to help you.

I want to be that

Tender friend

The one you know

Is always there

Even when miles seperate

Us.

I want to be that

Forever friend

The one you can turn to

When you are feeling down.

This is truly the desire of my heart…

It’s Okay To Laugh, To Cry, To Lean

It’s okay to laugh

To cry

To lean

To dream

To fall

To pick yourself up again.

It’s okay to seek

To find

To be that friend

For all times.

It’s okay

To have those moments

When you need to lean

When you need a shoulder

I am that shoulder

Feel free to lean on me.

God Bless

The Kind of Friend

I want to be the kind of friend

Who you know you can lean

On.

The kind of friend

Who loves unconditionally.

I want to be the kind of friend

Whose not afraid to tell you

As it is

And know that you understand

That I love you just the same.

I want to be the kind of friend

Who gives unconditionally.
