Yesterday and today

 Simon & Garfunkel gave words and melody to thoughts I’ve had before.

When you’re weary, feeling small, When tears are in your eyes, I’ll dry them all

I’m on your side, oh, when times get rough and friends just can’t be found

Like a bridge over troubled water I will lay me down

Like a bridge over troubled water I will lay me down


The difference in their song and my experience is that my friends could be found. And they turned up often on our doorstep.

During my recuperation, I have been blessed by my friends in beautiful and tangible ways. This is not something new, however. Friends have been pouring out their love to Sweet William and me for years now. And I cannot be grateful enough for them and their acts of kindness. They truly show the heart of Jesus.

Back in 2012, it was another time and another need. People I didn’t know well then came to our rescue. As I read it again today, tears sprang to my eyes remembering their benevolence. They are precious friends now, and they deserve thanks from me once again.

Here are my words. I only wish I could give melody to them.

The Heart of a Servant.


I'd love to hear your thoughts. Let's talk.
