Jesus is my best friend and my husband is a very close second. I also have three friends with whom I can only share virtual hugs. I have never met these three people face to face, but I pray that it is Godís will that someday weíll meet face to face if not in this world then in Godís heaven.
What makes these three people so special, when I canít seem to connect to people that are physically closer to me? My first guess would be we all share our love of Jesus. Not that I discriminate against those who donít share my love of God, but there is a deep bond that only those who love Jesus can touch.
We are all writers. We share joys and disappointments on a level that non-writers have trouble comprehending.
Through our computers, we four have found each other and forged a connection that reaches beyond the intricacies of this computer age.
When I need a shoulder to cry on or someone to do a virtual happy dance with, one of them is always there to share with me as I am for them. We've shed many a tear, both in joy and sorrow over our computer connections. Prayers for each other have been sent to God when needed as well as helping each other to find or expand our faith. They have been my supports when Iíve felt I couldnít go on and pushed me to move forward when I've stalled. They donít judge me for my looks and they accept all my flaws. Instead, they guide me in ways to correct my shortcomings without condemning me.
We have become the Four Musketeers of the Internet. Next to God and my husband, Trish, Lucie and George are my best friends. It is said being a writer is a lonely profession, but with these three, a finger touch away it becomes a little less lonely.
May God Bless Lucie, Trish and George and may it be Godís will that someday the four of us will meet face-to-face.
Hugs to All!!!
