For my dear friends...Walt & Marge Brauer

Thank you Lord Ö the friend that calls
She knows that itís okay
To bare her soul and ask for help.
Her tears, Iíll wipe away.

I understand her anguish.
I recognize her pain.
I meet her at her point of need,
Like drought and summer rain.

Thereís no need to check my stance.
I know Iím not conceited.
You see, the last time things went wrong
It was her advice I needed.

So, thank you Lord for FRIENDSHIP.
I donít mind the test
Of navigating lifeís rough road
I know You know whatís best.

You gave me things I needed
To sooth another's soul.
In return, she comforts me
Just like you would. Iím whole.

Itís not that you canít do it.
I know you have the time.
You gave her understanding
Mercifully, contrasting mine.

You knew Iíd need to learn
To lean on someone else
When life gets hard to take
To not think of myself.

To wallow in self-pity
Of course, just would not do.
My friend, she loves and cares for me
Just like You always do.

In return, I care for her
I help her understand
That sheís my gift as I am hers.
Isnít our God grand?

He most certainly IS grand! My friends... though I would have Christ, I just don't know what I'd do without them right now. He knew... He knew how much I would need them. In fact, one of my beautiful friends whom the Lord has led me to minister to on many occasions opened up her heart to me today and offered to help me carry some of the weight that's been so, so heavy on my chest... as though she doesn't have enough of her own. What a blessed gift. And you, precious sister, have given me a gift that I would love to share with her. May I?
Tammy McConnell 18 Jan 2006
Certainly you may share this with your friend. I suspect maybe this is why I wrote it. My prayers are still with you.
