This week, my mother-in-law, who will be arriving in a few hours, sent her a sweet letter. In it, she wrote of her prayer that Anna always keep Jesus as her best friend. My prayer is that she remembers this day always as the day Jesus became her best friend and that she may continue to develop and increase that friendship all through her life.
My mother-in-law also enclosed the lyrics to the song they sang on her First Communion day, back in 1931!
Jesus, Jesus come to me,
All my longing is for Thee.
Of all friends the best Thou art,
Make of me Thy counterpart.
May I ask for your prayers for Anna on this most important day?
