Chapter 104 of the book 2019 part 4
just because
"Happy Birthday" by Barb Hensongispsaca
She really is my bestest friend,
I'll cherish her love to the end.
She taught me how to love our Lord,
that Satan's word we can't afford.

As farm girls, we had chores to do,
but, afterwards we stuck like glue.
She lived right down the road from me,
we were as close as friends could be.

She helped me when my father died,
she stayed by me, right by my side.
We helped each other get through school
through classes we thought were so cool.

But after school, we went our ways
I found a job and in town stayed.
A missionary, she would roam
where God would send would be her home.

We n'er lost touch, my friend and I,
then later in God's bye and bye,
we joined again to reminisce,
to catch up on the things we'd missed.

We both have wins, and ones we've lost,
but we survived despite the cost.
Our faith has grown as we were taught
through God's pure love. That's what we sought.

On this, her special God filled day,
I wish her love and want to say -
she really is my bestest friend,
I'll cherish her love to the end.

The book continues with Hello, Dahlin'. We will provide a link to it when you review this below.
