From my post, “What’s Going on Here?!?!” to the one after, “You Can’t Help Me” and then, “Live Chat!” I’m beginning to think I’ve met a body of believers who have become my new spiritual family. It’s the weirdest thing to me…I’m still a bit flustered from hearing everyone talk and then being given the pleasure of hearing them sing.
My soul soared and my heart raced. For this home-body it was almost more than I could take. I do truly know I would not be able to handle a blog retreat without some way to keep my heart in check.
Debs dedicated a beautiful song to me…wow. The love I felt pouring forth from those ladies – the guys were great too, but the ladies – Darla, Debs, and Tam…thank you! I know there were lots of other people online, got to share a couple of comments with Love and Ric, but I really felt the words of affirmation and encouragement were meant for me…really!
But, you know, I have a feeling EVERYONE online felt the same. I think that’s called love of the brethren, the Spirit of the Lord bringing us together…AMAZING!!
Since you have in obedience to the truth purified your souls for a sincere love of the brethren, fervently love one another from the heart, for you have been born again not of seed which is perishable but imperishable, that is, through the living and enduring word of God. ~1 Peter 1:22-23
Thanks, Brent, for the opportunity to share. I must admit I lurked for a bit before I took the plunge and joined the fun…it’s really hard sometimes to “put myself out there” but I’m so thankful I did. And Scott…beautiful, truly beautiful.
