The People I've Never Met

It's funny, this internet world. I have had opportunities to meet people I may never have otherwise. My friend, Karen, for example. We met online. We'd known each other for several months before I invited her (and a bunch of other people I'd never met! to my house. People thought we were nuts. Perhaps we were. I just knew that the invitation was SO out of character for me, and still I was peaceful about it. It was one of the best things I've ever done.

I continue to meet and get to know people I've never met. I have a few that have become dear friends.

And then there are those I interacted with during my teleconference class. Interesting concept that is. LOVED it. After 12 weeks of meeting together, some of my classmates have posted pictures of themselves. It's interesting to see these people I've never met, yet have become acquainted with.

The instructor I will miss. She has a way of explaining things and a calm and peaceful demeanor. Her laugh is full of joy. I'd love to sit and chat with her face to face one day. God willing, perhaps it will happen.

And then there are those that I pray for. Some I know, some I don't. Some I don't even have names for.

Thank You, God for the people I've never met. And thank You for those I have. My life would not be the same without them.
