I got a note from an old friend a few days ago.
Told me how the Lord had brought me to mind in prayer.
Spoke of faithfulness, and thanks,
and friendship with God,
Isn't it good to hear encouragement?
Have you given any out lately?
I found myself pondering
how words of thankfulness and blessing that we hear
slip down the drain when one complaint is voiced.
But thou, O Jehovah, art a shield about me;
My glory and the lifter up of my head.
I am thankful for those who let Him use them to reach out and lift others.
