Draw Closer in 2005

I have so many things to do on this Christmas Eve day, 2004. There's a cake to be baked, tub to be cleaned, floor to be swept, and breakfast to be made. And here I sit at the computer, reading and commenting on poems and devotionals from my friends at Faith Writers.

From the first few days here, back in August, I think, or perhaps September, I have discovered a whole new family of fellow writers.

At times my back does not agree with my sitting here and helping myself with readings, like indulging in a box of chocolates. But when we are in agreement, I am here!

You, my Faith Writers family, have blessed me beyond words these last few months. Like me, some of you don't always have perfect spelling, and some of you don't have paragraph breaks where they should be, ( and many of you do) but like me, I pray you will look beyond the imperfections and see what is in the heart! May we learn from each other in this coming year, in new ways.

It is my prayer that each of you...myself included, will draw closer to the only one who can give the words to help encourage, comfort, or make smile....in this coming year. And as we draw closer, we will begin to hear beautiful sounds we have never heard before.....words of life to all who read.

And now, I hear the sounds of this Christmas Eve day calling me.

God bless,
Barbara Thompson-Young

(((Barb))) I spent part of Christmas day around people I haven't seen in years. They were practically strangers. I woke this morning feeling just a little empty, longing for an embrace. What do you think I found when I sat down to read a while? Family! I love you, sister. You are beautiful and you bless me so, so much!

Barbara, I agree with you about our wonderful Faith Writers family. We are like so many families, imperfect in many ways, but bound together with common ties; the love of Jesus and the love of writing. You, sweet lady, have been a special blessing to Trish and I. Your encouragement and your character, as displayed in the heart of your writings, have blessed us so much. Go into 2005 with hope in your heart and a continued love for God and your FW family. There is someone loving you and it is Trish and I.
