Praying for Friends
Linda's Front Porch
Guest Artist: Linda
Last week was a time full of surprises! One day I went out to the mailbox and there was a box of incredible treasures from our guest artist, Linda. Here is a picture of just one of the items she sent me that she had made and I wanted to share it with you.
Little did she know when she sent it that I was in the midst of making a nesting piece myself, so I knew for sure that somehow we were so connected, not only as artists, but more importantly, as friends.
It made me think of all the people we meet on here and how we share our days and little happenings, our feelings, and everything else that goes on in our lives. But, in the midst of it, we make friends that may know us even better than our neighbors do...We get excited for each other when things are going well...We cry together when one of us is going through something...
And even more than that--our voices can be heard. Someone cares what we think, how we are doing, and how we are feeling. How miraculous is that? It is a big world but we have been so blessed to know others who pray with us--who “get” us and who share in a spirit of “I wish you the best in life.” Isn’t that a miracle?
I think this is an important day to take a few minutes and pray for all the friends you have made through your blogging adventures. I am going to do that and I hope you will do it too....In this way, I believe we will create a “circle of love” that will go around the globe! How amazing is that?
Just as birds take flight and are not limited by location, our prayers have no boundaries and can affect the lives of all those we pray for.
I hope you will go visit Linda's blog--but give yourself lots of time because you won't believe the treasures she has on there! She has so many vintage pieces and they're also available in her Etsy shop...For those of you who are artists, you won't believe what you'll find!
