Oh, That I Could Be
~Marge Tindal~ 1999

Upon this land,
God placed His hand.
He knew what He would do.
He created the kindest people,
and He brought me you.

In my heart I found
that He placed a hole
and then He filled it up with friends.
Friends are music to my soul.

Of friends and happy places
and memories for the taking ...
it's God who gets to share
the friendships that I'm making.

Oh, that I could be,
the kind of friend to others
that God has been to me.

Thank you, Balladeer.
You reside in this heart's neighborhood.
I share each new friend with God in prayer,
Rest assured you now are there.

What a great poem, Marge! Enjoyed it all, and loved the thoughts behind it. Friends are a beautiful and much needed part of life, thanks for sharing.

My mother growing up always told us children that we reap what we sow... Little question but that you are blessed with friends.

Dusk Treader - Thank you.
Mike - Your mother was right. And I do indeed try to be the kind of friend I'd want others to be. I think that friends are second only to love of God and family.
And to be treasured for sure.

Beautiful Marge...I really enjoyed

When God created friendship
He did with you in mind
For no other friend so sweet
Will anybody find

Beautiful poem Marge. Friends are a blessing. And I have already been blessed by you!
