November 20th 2009

Living in a rural town we are not availed of having home delivery of our mail, no one in our town is, everyone has to go to the post office and get their mail.  One of things my husband does when he drops our son off at school in the morning is get the mail.  Usually the mail does not make it home until he arrives home in the evening.  On Fridays however his schedule varies and he does not go into until later, so he brings the mail home.  Worked out well for me today!

I woke up this morning just a few minutes before my husband was leaving for work.  He pointed out to me that I had received mail.  What did I receive?  If you read my blog regularly you have heard the names Lisa and Shellie before.  Well these same two woman, having found out it was my birthday, sent me cards!  What a delight!  Both of them also included the most encouraging words within them.

Two woman who I have never met in person were able to encourage me just where I am.  Why is that?  Because each believer is given the Holy Spirit, and the Lord bonds all believers together through the Holy Spirit.  The fellowship we share is not hampered by things in the physical world, it is a connection put there by the Lord.  So despite the fact that we have never met, our fellowship is sweet because the Lord has created the connection.  That connection will then continue when this physical world passes away and we are together with the Lord!

So thank you Lisa and Shellie, and all my other friends I have not yet met, for the fellowship we share, and the constant encouragement that is to me.  I thank the Lord that we have been brought together in such a unique way.  I look forward to the day we all meet, even if it is not here on earth, I know we all one day meet.



  1. I missed the post from Tuesday’s adventures, so I will comment on both. As soon I quit laughing! Tuesday & all the tweets leading up to Tuesday were fun! We can banter back & forth. We can console one another back & forth. We can encourage one another back & forth. We can pray for & with each other. It has been an amazing year since God brought us together in such an unexpected way. My husband doesn’t roll his eyes quite as much anymore when I disappear to the computer. Or laugh after reading a tweet! I think he thought I had met axe murderers or something! Finally after going to Dallas for the RAWRS in April & meeting “rexette” & “chinakat”, he seemed to be a little more accepting of my tweeps! We have shared so much together. Like we’ve know each other all our lives. Happy days. Scary days. Sad days. You guys all help make WA a happier place for me. I have met so great people, but almost all non-Christians.

    Yes, we are sneaky. But, look at how it made you feel today! And that makes me feel good. (It was all Lisa’s doing).

  2. I’m so glad for the connection we have! People tend to look at me oddly when I refer to my “friends” and they ask where they live, and then I have to tell them I’ve never met you guys. They just don’t get it! That’s ok though, because WE do. It’s an awesome thing! I’m so thankful to God for bringing you all into my life. I really feel lost without ‘talking’ to you guys every day…whether that be through texts, tweets, or fb. I often wonder if the MM guys (and Brody) REALLY get what has transpired since they started the broadcasts?

  3. Wow. Isn’t is amazing to be reminded of the blessings and treasures that the Lord sends into our lives for such a time as these? IMO, this is really a testimony of encouragement for believers today. Little do we comprehend how blessed beyond our own understanding we really are … yet we would if only we would reach out to one another.
