“When you’re weary, feeling small….when tears are in your eyes, I’ll dry them all.” “I’m on your side…”
It’s important to remember, who’s on your side. Because in this life you must choose a side.
Bridge Over Troubled Waters, by Simon and Garfunkel was the first song I heard on the radio back in 1970 as I was driving home from the hospital after my daughter died. It has both haunted and encouraged me for well over forty years now, most especially that one line: “when you need a friend, I’m sailing right behind,”
…. and I have these days when I have done nothing to be a friend, or very little, but in some odd coincidence I hear this song on the radio driving home from dropping off a very wonderful little baby, and I’m encouraged that tomorrow will be a good day.
Remember I’m on your side, and I’m sailing right behind.
