We are all women of that time of life when we have been occasionally startled to see, in the mirror, our motherís face. We have ridiculous adult children who appear to have learned little from us. Our houses have rooms with new furniture, as family members have left to take up residence elsewhere. New furnishings now decorate our hearts as well, with each new grandchild, great-niece or nephew, and in-law.
We have carried one another through illness, depression, and loss. We have rejoiced at new life, forgiveness, and personal triumph. We have laughed at our own clumsiness and at each otherís foibles.
Although we are of widely varied circumstances, we are bound by our common faith. Women of persistent prayer, we are like the widow in Luke 18, known to pester God until He relents.
Most of us have never met. Tossed together serendipitously by the wonder of the internet, we gather in cyberspace and chat with flying fingers.
