An angel lightly brushed my hand, her wings just seemed to enfold me
I could feel her strength hold me up, as I was falling - ever so slowly
She gently took away the pain, at times she shed a tear
She gave me hope when all seemed lost, and she hugged away the fear
I didn't want to wake from this, so afraid of what I would feel
But slowly realization hit, this was no dream, this was real
You were that special angel, that I didn't want to leave
It was you who gave me a little hope, and tried to make me believe
That no matter how heavy the load may be, no matter how long the walk
You will never let me go on alone, or stop the endless talk
You said you'd never let go of the rope, well, I've got your rope too
And as long as there's life and breath in me, I will never let go of you
The road ahead may seem long at times, but together we will make it through
We'll walk this path side by side, and do what we have to do
To overcome each obstacle, to get over each bump with ease
To scale those frightening mountains, unafraid to fall on our knees
And ask God to give us the strength we need, to stand when our legs our weak
To find compassion in family and friends, when comfort is what we seek
And when we come to a crossroad, unsure of which way to turn,
We'll be there with all the support we can give, and pray it's the right bridge we burn
You have jumped many hurdles before this, what you have learned - you've taught me too
But there are some that I have had to jump first, perhaps, just so I could teach you
That no matter how hard the walk may be, no matter that nothing seems fine
You will never be alone on this path, for you'll have whatever is mine.

This really hit close to home with me.
I think we all need friends like that.
Lord know`s I sure do.
Nice job.  

 Today is the first day of the rest of your life.

Enjoyed

 Did Jesus laugh?
I think He did,
'cause He was once
a little kid;
and all of us
were made with joy
both sugar-spice girl
and snake-snail boy!

When you can't make up your mind
Which way is right for you,
Stop and softly ask yourself,
What Would Jesus Do?
