Five Minute Friday - Connect

I love the way we connect in this online space.

What a blessing and exciting opportunity to reach out to people without the limitations of physical distance to keep us apart. People that share your story. People that see your heart through your words. How miraculous!

It fascinates me how God, in all of His infinite wisdom, put us here together. He truly is bigger and beyond anything we can imagine. I sit here and type words on a keyboard and almost instantly you are reading them hundreds of miles away. It's really awe inspiring when you think about it.

My story is my own, as is yours. But there is a common thread. Another kind of connection...

In the story of every woman, there are threads of insecurity, hurt and fear woven into the fabric. Regardless of age, where we are in life today or where we have been. There is a connection.

If I told you about my messy house and how I feel guilty that I don't make more of an effort to keep it tidy during the week, you'd understand. When I say I lost my temper and snapped at my son, you will relate. As I tell you about my fears of not being good enough for one reason or another, you empathize.

Connection.... it's something we share and something we do.

And I'm so thankful that God has put us on this journey together and given us the tools to reach out and connect.

We're linking up at Lisa-Jo's site for 5 minute Friday... 


  1. So true...how amazing it is to connect via words we type. And to know our hearts are seen and shared and encouraged!
    Thank you for your words.
