Birthday wishes

A while ago, one night I was already in bed, and suddenly I remembered it was one of my good friends' birthday. I pulled myself up and sent him a birthday card through internet. Nothing particular, just chose one of those already made up Ecard but thought it could be related to him. It turned out that he felt really blessed by that card. He said something like, "it was a very long day, and it was a very hot day... and then your card comes, what a blessing... thank you for remember my birthday, and did you realise it's also my 60th birthday? " I felt he was very lonely, and probably nobody else remembered his birthday, probably even he himself have forgotten about it. But I think the Lord reminded me.
Then just a couple of weeks ago, I felt to give another old friend a birthday card. I haven't talked or seen him for maybe 15 years. A very old friend. But I just thought that I'd send him an E-card to wish him birthday happiness. Again, I didn't write anything particular, just chose one of those already made up cards on the internet and I can't even remember now which card I sent and what words were on that card. Anyway, after a few days he replied, he really appreciated. Then I thought I'd just ring to catch up and see how he's doing. He told me that he had just gone through a relational disappointment and thought that he'd end his life on his birthday. It was his 45th birthday. And just before that, he had a car accident in which he bumped into another car head on. He thought he'd died, but "somehow God didn't allow him and was trying to tell him something."
I tried to talk to him not to be so disappointed, and encouraged him to find God. Interestingly, he told me that whenever he thought of me, he'd always think about God. Sometimes when he's in real trouble, he'd even prayed. He actually have thought that I was his god... Then he just listened quietly to me speaking of God. He had been a hardest person toward God before.
Interesting what a random thought of sending a birthday card can do to people....
