Revelation 3:20...


It's as simple as opening the door of your heart.
Jesus longs to be your friend.


"A Friend when other friendships cease,
A Friend when others fail,
A Friend who gives me joy and peace,
A Friend when foes assail!
  1. A Friend when sickness lays me low,
    A Friend when death draws near,
    A Friend as through the vale I go,
    A Friend to help and cheer!
  2. A Friend when life’s short race is o’er
    A Friend when earth is past,
    A Friend to meet on Heaven’s shore,
    A Friend when home at last!

Friendship with Jesus,
fellowship divine,
oh, what blessed sweet communion,
Jesus is a friend of mine."
{hymn "Friendship with Jesus" by Joseph C. Ludgate}

Who doesn't need a friend like that?

    1. It's an old one we used to sing out of the old red hymnal when I was a child. Those long ago hymns just won't leave my mind and heart.

  12. I have not heard that hymn in years. In years. Yet as soon as I started reading the words, I began humming the tune. It will always amaze me how we never forget the old hymns. This is just a beautiful post in every way. Beautiful photo! Have a blessed Sunday!

    1. I hadn't thought of it in years, but it popped into my mind when I started this post. You are right, those hymns we sang in childhood don't leave our mind or heart.
