I went to bed at 8 and got home at 11

As you got up this morning, I watched you, and hoped you would talk to me, even if it was just a few words, asking my opinion or thanking me for something good that happened in your life yesterday.

But I noticed you were too busy, trying to find the right outfit to wear. When you ran around the house getting ready, I knew there would be a few minutes for you to stop and say 'hello', but you were too busy.

At one point, you had to wait 15 minutes with nothing to do but sit in a chair. Then, I saw you spring to your feet. I thought you wanted to talk to me, but you ran to the phone and called a friend to get the latest gossip instead.

I watched patiently, all day long. With all of your activities, I guess you were too busy to say anything to me.

I noticed that before lunch, you looked around, maybe you felt embarrassed to talk to me, that is why you didn't bow your head. You glanced three or four tables over and you noticed some of your friends talking to me briefly before they ate, but you didn't.

That's okay. There is still more time left, and I hope that you will talk to me yet. You went home and it seems as if you had lots of things to do.

After a few of them were done, you turned on the TV. I don't know if you like TV or not, just about anything goes there and, you spend a lot of time each day, in front of it not thinking about anything, just enjoying the show. I waited patiently, again, as you watched the TV and ate your meal, but again, you didn't talk to me.

Bedtime, I guess you felt too tired. After you said 'goodnight' to your family, you plopped into bed and fell asleep, in no time. That's okay, because you may not realize that I am always there for you. I've got patience. More than you'll ever know. I even want to teach you how to be patient with others as well.

I love you so much that I wait everyday for a nod, a prayer, a thought or even a thankful part of your heart. It is hard to have a one-sided conversation.

Well, you are getting up, once again. And once again, I will wait, with nothing but love for you.

Hope that today, you will give me some time.

Your friend,

Although I know we all do deny God in just about all that we do, I am thankful that God is not merely a passive Sovereign. If He left me to myself I would never repent. I praise Him daily that He not only loves me, but He gave me life and faith. :)

In Him,
