It can get really lonely sometimes, when you haven’t heard from someone in a long time. It doesn’t even have to take years; sometimes, just being apart for a few days can have the same impact. Especially when that person means so much to you, you find yourself wishing they were all right. Although worrying needlessly never did anyone any good, you still can’t help but worry for their safety, or wish you were there if ever they were lonely, or afraid of what may come. You patiently wait for their reply, and when it indeed comes, you feel as if no one could be any more happier than you.
During these times when you are far apart, the best thing one can do is to pray. No matter how far they may be, our prayers will always reach them, and God will provide for what they might need. He will keep them safe from harm, dispel the cold and keep them warm. Whatever they may face, they won’t face on their own. For we are with them, and they are never alone.
May the angels protect you
Trouble neglect you
And heaven accept you when it’s time to go home
And when hard times have found you
And your fears surround you
Wrap my love around you
You’re never alone
-Never Alone, Lady Antebellum & Jim Brickman
