Before I stepped into this online world, I could have never imagined just how wonderful it would be. I didn’t understand it at first. I wasn’t really sure what all the fuss was about. Friends with people I’ve never met? Really?
After being part of it and knowing … I wondered what took me so long!
The heartfelt counsel of a friend is as sweet as perfume and incense. Proverbs 27:9
It is like talking on the couch with a life long friend. I read their words and think to myself… oh my goodness… you too? They get it, I am not alone. They get me! A connection is made.
Friendships develop and spill over into real life. These online friendships are unexpected. These friendships are real. And since you are here online, I know you understand.
If one falls down, his friend can help him up. Ecclesiastes 4:10
We do life together. Across this big, beautiful world we are connected.
We pray together. We laugh together. We rejoice together. We cry together. We share our stories. Everyone has a story and everyone has something to teach. We listen and we learn. That is a beautiful thing.
A wise person will listen and continue to learn, and an understanding person will gain direction. Proverbs 1:5
Friendships. A blessing that adds joy to our lives. A blessing that can truly make our hearts happy. A gift to be cherished.
Just another way HE loves.
“I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.” Jeremiah 31:3
Have you had those, “you too?” online moments that make you feel like you are not so alone? Isn’t it a beautiful thing?
