Howdy! Fall is in the air here on Whidbey Island with the color of leaves changing into the beautiful yellow orange and rust colors. Fall is such a beautiful time of the year, with the crisp cooler air, taking walks is so much more enjoyable. Today I wanted to share a beautiful letter I read the other day. It goes like this: Dear Friend, how are you? I just had to send a note to tell you how much I care about you. I saw you yesterday as you were talking with your friends, I waited all day hoping you would want to talk with me too. I gave you a sunset to close your day and a cool breeze to rest you and I waited. You never came. It hurt me, but I still love you because I am your friend. I saw you sleeping last night and longed to touch your brow, so I spilled moonlight upon your face. Again I waited, wanting to rush down so we could talk. I have so many gifts for you! You awoke and rushed to work - my tears were in the rain. If you would only listen to me. I love you!! I try to tell you in blue skies and in the quiet green grass. I whisper it in the leaves on the trees and breathe it in the colors of flowers, shout it to you in mountain streams, give the birds love songs to sing. I clothe you with warm sunshine and perfume the air with nature scents. My love for you is deeper than the ocean and bigger than the biggest need in your heart. Ask me! Talk with me. Please don't forget me. I have so much to share with you but I won't hassle you any further. It is YOUR decision. I have chosen you and I will wait. I love you - your friend JESUS.
