Stay Connected

15 08 2013


Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.  Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace.  Ephesians 4:2-3 NLT


Staying connected in any relationship takes effort.  We seek love, support and a deeper level of understanding in the relationships we value most.   We are created as physical, emotional and spiritual beings that are sustained through our connections with God and others.  My relationships through family and friends have blessed my journey in so many ways.  They have brought joy and peace and softened and supported steps even during the most difficult passages in my life.  I am so thankful for these gifts of fellow travelers along life’s path.  So even when miles or emotional distance arise within your circle of family and friends, take the time to reach out and reconnect.  The distance may be a factor of the busy lives that we lead or it may be a time of discouragement for someone you love.  I am thankful for the Holy Spirit that leads us to make a call, send a card or to say a prayer for someone who is not connected.  We can be careful to heed those spiritual nudges to reach out with love and concern.  We can encourage one another to stay on the journey and stay connected.
