I joined Facebook four years ago.
I began to blog three years ago.
I linked up with The High Calling network two-and-a-half years ago.
And somewhere along the line came Twitter–now over 16,000 tweets. (Am I too noisy?)
Who knew anyone would actually read my words?
Who knew I’d Jesus-walk in cyberspace?
Who knew the sharing of links and spilling of lives would lead to the joining of hearts?
Who knew the forming of the Society of Sticky Sock Sisters?
Who knew real writers would become real friends?
Who knew a community would become family?
Who knew I’d find my way to a place in Texas I’d never heard of–that I’d discover its first director wrote one of the first faith books I ever read? (Maybe he mentioned the place, but I don’t remember.)
Who knew that words on a screen could lead to hugs on a neck?
God knew, of course.
For such a time as this.
That the world would shrink to the size of a keyboard.
To join His people from here, there, and everywhere.
I am the Vine, you are the branches. When you’re joined with me and I with you, the relation intimate and organic, the harvest is sure to be abundant. Separated, you can’t produce a thing. ~John 15:5 (MSG)
Joining the beautiful crowd over at Lisa Jo’s for five minutes of free writing on the word “join.”
Caution: This is a no-edit zone.
Linking also with Cheryl tomorrow for her True Vine Challenge.
