Because We Looked

These friends that I have, it's because of looking. We were each looking for something when we made the connections that we don't even remember anymore. Without the screen, we wouldn't know each other. I realized this week that Internet friends can most certainly be real life friends. I've had so many encouraging emails & tweets from real people, most that I've not yet been with in physical togetherness, but in heart and spirit & they don't even know the difference they've made. Except that I think they do. They know it because they looked, too. We were all
looking for each other, but didn't know at the time.


I'm linking up with Lisa Jo & five minute Fridays- this weeks prompt is look.

  1. Love the post! It's pretty awesome how looking back you see how God answered prayers and needs through our friends in ways we didn't even know we were looking for!

  3. I know, before blogging I thought online friendships were just kinda weird. I mean how can you know someone from some characters typed on a screen and a teeny tiny avatar but honestly, I've met some of the most amazing women on here. True, real life friends and some I've met up with now in real life and some I will meet soon and some I may never meet but they are in my heart. I love that God unites us even if it is through characters on the screen. Oh, and welcome to Five Minute Friday. It's a fun time round these parts.
