Dear Patrice,

I just wanted to drop a line to you and see how you were doing. I know after Fredís death you had a real rough time of it. I hope things are going better for you now. How are the kids? I heard that Jamie won a scholarship to an Ivy League school. He always was a smart one, howís Jessica and her husband? The twins must be getting big and almost ready for school.

I wish we lived closer, but Jamesí work took him to this one horse town in the middle of nowhere. Itís okay though, the people are genuine and good Christians. Oh by the way, I met a mutual friend of ours, he said to tell you hello and that you are always on his heart and mind. He said he feels sad that you no longer communicate with him and that when you were a young girl you two were inseparable.

Patrice, he really misses you and as he spoke about the days you two spent together Ė he listening to your dreams and hopes, your fears and sorrows, and comforting you through your darkest moments, I detected tears in his eyes. He even went on to say that when he heard about Fred he rushed to your side, he was there when you got the news, at the wake and funeral Ė even when you cried yourself to sleep, but you didnít recognize him.

He said also to tell you, no matter how many times you turn your back on the friendship, he will never leave you or forsake you. His heart is broken, it was evident in the way he spoke of you with such love and devotion, and how his words seemed labored because of the pain he felt over your rejection of him after all the years you two spent together.

Patrice, he said to just tell you that "Jesus wants you back in his life and that it is not complete without you."

Call on him, Patrice. I am sure he can come at a momentís notice if you ask him to.

With all my love,
Dana Marie

A clever and gentle way to help a friend come back to Jesus, our best friend.

This really shows the heart of Jesus for his earthly family. Well done.

A sweet and tender letter to a friend that has strayed. A remarkable way to let her know that our friend Jesus is always willing to forgive and take us back.

Interesting. Could be a gentle way to nudge a friend back into the fold. Enjoyed. God Bless.

This was a nice letter, I liked you told about the person writing the letter as well as the insight into the person receiving it. By making it a letter you picked a creative way to make a common topic (Jesus being the mutal friend) feel fresh.
