Often we forget in this rat race of this thing we call life…we forget to count our blessings no matter how our situation shall be. It is good to know that true friends are forever even If we never meet.

The above photo is from a young Eddie M.

A Timely Call From Ed Matlack



I got a call tonight from Eddie M. tonight, this time him checking on me.

It pleased me very much to hear from my old friend whom I have yet to meet.

His voice was strong, his demeanor now jovial and not sad.

To hear and to feel this in my spirit made me exceedingly glad.


This is a man who has been to hell and back, but now embraces the light.

I am so proud of him and to hear his voice was a true delight.

He has a job now that came just in the nick of time.

He is moving forward; He laughs out loud at my southern accent.

He also jokes about how it is I that I am getting old.


Nonetheless, his call of concern to me did wholly bless.

When we hung up, it was now I who asked him to pray for me.

Thank you sir for a timely call when it is now I who is in need.

God Bless you sir for blessing me, thank you for what tonight you gave to me.


Just a simple call of concern: something that will to my soul cleave.

God Bless you sir, and may He ALWAYS guide your way.

How can you love God whom you can't see, if you can't love the people you live and work with all the time? How can you say you love people whom you haven't seen, if you don't love your brother or sister whom you see every day? (1 John 4:20).

Ed so deserves this timely call. . .

Hope you are ALL doing better! I have been out of the circle for so long. . . still trying to figure out who is where, and who needs prayer, who flew away and who's here to stay...I pop on, read and run...not by choice, I promise!
I have missed you and DO wish the best, J Allen~
Love and Peace~
