Then Jesus said to his disciples,      

"If anyone would come after me,  he must first deny himself and

take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wants to save his life

will lose it, but whoever loses  his life for me will find it. 

           ( Matt. 16:24 )

A Friend Touches Your Life



Today I met a friend!  Almost 30 years ago I met a kind, beautiful nurse.  She gave allergy shots to my son and she was so kind and gentle with him, it touched my heart. 


We weren't close neighbors or associates on a daily basis.  We've seldom seen each other over the years so you may ask, "How could she be my friend?" 


Well, what is a friend?  Is it someone you talk to daily?  Someone you confide your troubles to?  Not always.


A friend is someone who touches your life with a smile, a kind word,  or with compassion when you lose a loved one. 


A friend is someone who cares.  Someone who may not remember your name, but remembers your face after years of absence. 


A friend is someone who prays for you and cares that you are well and happy.  Someone who warms your heart with a smile and a hug after a long absence.  That's a friend!


Thank you Mrs. Hatfield for being a friend.  May God continue to richly bless you and yours.
