Your name is not Charlie, but you know that, lo, but I want the “receipients” of these “letters” to remain anonymous. In fact, I have no idea if you’ll ever read this, so it’s more for myself, and any passersby who might be able to relate and learn.
If there is one thing I regret about our friendship, its that I didn’t get to know you more. Getting to know friends in a far off distant land, was as exciting as it was difficult. Because I met your extroverted sister first, I ended up spending more time talking with her. I’m sorry I didn’t try to reach out to you more, and that I didn’t do it sooner on.
You’re a bright, and fun, guy. Don’t ever think otherwise. But if you do, remember that Jesus and I, think you’re very cool.
I suspect that by now your sister, and closest ally, has either left the country, or will soon, for college. I don’t know if you’ve made more friends since we last spoke, so you may be in a very lonely season in life right now. I’m praying for you right now, and whenever you come to mind.
I’m also praying that you will learn that Jesus can be your best friend. I know, having a friend standing right by us, in human form, sounds more comforting, but as I’ve grown older, and since we last spoke, I have learned more and more of what a treasure our relationship with Jesus Christ is. Yes, he’s not there in a physical form, but he’s there in a much greater, and deeper, way. God is truly the friend that sticks closer than a brother. I’m praying that you sense Him in more real way in your life, than you ever have before.
“One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.” Proverbs 18:24 (NIV).
If I never see you here on Earth again, I’ll see you in Heaven brother. Whatever the case, you have a brother in the Lord who prays for you.
God bless your whole face "Charlie"!
