by Charles R. Swindoll
Like apples of gold in settings of silver
Is a word spoken in right circumstances.
The days, weeks, months, and years fly by so quickly. Before you know it, it's too late. Don't let those words go unspoken, unwritten, unsaid.
Like cold water to a weary soul,
So is good news from a distant land.
How long has it been since you have written to your parents, to your best friend, to old friends long unseen but not forgotten?
Have you ever written to your favorite teachers (school or Sunday school) and told them how much their influence has meant in your life? Can you imagine what news like that might mean to them?
