As an child/teen/young adult introvert, I did not make friends easily. There were very few I felt safe with, so I was always on the outside looking in, keeping myself very protected.
As a healed, whole, delivered Child of the Most High God, I carefully make friends via The Spirit of God, as His Word urges us.
And here in blog world, we make the most precious of friendships, don't we?
Friendships bonded by the outpouring of our hearts through our written words. We don't know each other via our natural lives, but via The Holy Spirit who draws us to each other and allows us to see each other's hearts. And what a precious gift that is.
I love this thought by C.S. Lewis:
Friendship is born at that moment when one person
says to another, "What! You too? I thought I was the
only one.”It is so true, isn't it?
And that's what happens in our blogging communities. You write something that deeply touches my soul. I identify with it - I identify with you. Those heart-to-heart touches draw us close. Draw us together. Draw us into a friendship.
How blessed we are to be a part of this world-wide friendship community! God not only allows the gift of friendship but to utilize our writing gifts to forge these friendships! Truly, a double blessing to each of us!
From my heart to yours, thank you for being a writer, thank you for being a friend!
Because of Him and Unto Him,
