I have been out of the blog loop for several days now and it has felt like a smoker being without cigarettes. I felt edgy,like I was missing out on something very important, not peering into the lives of my old and new friends for those few days. It was a huge relief this evening when I finally had the time to sit and catch up with you all. I love the community of blogging. Its almost like being our own little world of Amish people. Yes, I am very intriuged by the amish. But seriously, there is a sense of community. A feeling of belonging. A desire to come upon side of another and lift them up in prayer when they've blogged about a bad day. A release of laughter when they share a funny story or antecdote. A moment of encouragment when an insight of how our Great God is offered. A quick walk down memory lane when an old friend post your name and it makes you feel greatful for such wonderful friendships. A sense that you can actually hear the person with whom your reading about, speaking, hearing their voice as you read. A feeling of adventure when you want to just hop in your car and meet all of your fellow bloggers at the local Starbucks, or better yet...road trip!!!! Most of all it is a feeling that I'm not alone in this world with all of these plates of mine. I have my friends out there in blog world. Friends that through their postings and comments have encouraged me during this last month. Friends that I enjoy continually learning more about. But mostly, friends that love our Lord, and are constantly pointing me to Him.
So to all of my fellow bloggers...thanks for being my friends! I love you all!
