I have a friend named Jay
He is Muslim, origonally from Bahrain
I am Christian, born in the U.S.A.
What difference does it make?
We became friends,even before
Either of us knew the other one’s belief
This should prove to the world
That we can exist peacefully
He operates a convience store
Not far from where I live
I would trust him with my life.
And I am just a customer...
There should not be so much strife
Between people of different beliefs
For we all worship the only one and true God
And I know that God loves us all.
Jay has encouraged me to write again
And to express what I
Think about him.
He is 35 and has darker skin than I
I am a grandma with white skin
Who sometimes just goes in
To talk with him
Before I have to come home
To an empty house.
And risk crying
All over again
The recent death of my beloved husband.
Because Jay has always been so friendly
With a big smile on his face
I think that God let us become friends
For some reason neither of us know
God has allowed our conversations to grow
Within our faith talks together
May God continue to bless Jay
For I am thankful
To have such a friend.
In ...my life.
previously, I said Jay was Islamic,; he corrected me and said he is Muslim, that Islamic was extreme and that he was not Islamic. You can see what truthful communucation between people can open understanding. He reads my Christian writing that I share with him.
