PART 1


"Itís been a long time."

"Yessir."

"You havenít changed much."

"You neither."

Moments faltered as stammered thoughts riddle through bygone days; eyes clung awkwardly like a skittish handshake.

"Ya wanna sit down?"

"Sure. Have you been here long?"

"Naw, Ďbout a year." Hands fidget across the table, waiting for the right moment.

"I, er... I received your letter." Compassion rendering his unsettled spirit, he gently muttered, "Iím sorry, Joe."

Suddenly breathing came easier; hearts shifted back into normal sinus rhythm. "Thanks, man. I didnít know if youíd come."

"You knew I would. Thatís why you wrote to me."

"Yeah, I knows." His fingers, stuffed in his pockets, fidgeted open and closed, open and closed, open and closed.

"Well..."

"I knows I have done sumpthiní really, really bad, Frank. Aní I gotís ta pay fer it." Clearing his throat he continued. "But thatís not why I asked you ta come."

Looking up with tearful eyes, he leaned closer to Frank, "I been doing lots Ďa thinking and ..."

"...and I needs you for my witness."

"Witness for what, Joe?"

"...for when I meet my maker."

The stagnant air became electrified by the hush. It wasnít what Frank had expected to hear.


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
