Welcome to Day 28 of #write31days. Connect is the prompt word for Five Minute Friday Free Writes. Throughout our lives we make connections with people, starting with our families. As I was growing up my parents taught me about God. Through them and in church I learned how to connect with God.
My mother was an example to me as I saw her read her Bible every day.
This beautiful wall hanging of the Lord’s Prayer was crocheted by her many years ago. It reminds me of her and her love for God. She passed on that love to me. Even though she is gone, we still have a connection. We both belong to Christ, and I will see her again.
The Lord’s Prayer
Words, ancient but true
Crocheted with tiny stitches
The prayer of our Lord
CONNECT THROUGH BLOGGING
Through blogging I have met many people, and have found others who have similar interests. Some have become close friends even though we have never met in person. Others I have met in person and consider them good friends, too.
This connection with my online friends is as real as any with those who live near me.
We pray for each other and communicate several times a week.
Peggi Di Benedetto is a talented artist who loves to gift people with her work. She and I talk on the phone each week to discuss Scripture that we have studied separately. We also pray for each other and communicate online throughout each week.
There are other friends I could mention, like Susan Shipe, who is a great inspiration to me and to many. I would encourage you to take a look at what these ladies have to offer. You will be blessed. I’m so glad God made a way for me to connect with these wonderful women and many more. My life is richer because of it.
CONNECT WITH NATURE
I can’t forget my connection to nature especially since it is my theme for #write31days. Here is a haiku I wrote awhile back about a lovely pink rose.
