Two a.m. Friends
Tonight's sermon was about the healing of the man whose friends lowered him through the roof to Jesus...the only one who could forgive the man's sins & heal his body, too. If they had lowered him through the roof of any other house in the world, he would have remained bedridden.
And the preacher reminded us of the importance of close friends, too...not just friends who are a step above acquaintances, but real companions--"two a.m. friends" who will come help you in the middle of the night, if you need it. Friends who will get you to Jesus in any way they can...and that you will carry back to The Great Physician, if they ever need it.
Oh, and we learned about the word "Hallelujah" and its meaning and its beauty and its use in the Bible. And the hymns tonight were amazing. (Church tonight was beautiful, btw.)

Your two a.m. friend in Texas,
P.S. Thanks, Mom & Dad, for TWO of my "two a.m." friends! :-)
