So here we are to write for 5 minutes without worrying if it's right or not!
There is something about a community that just draws you in and makes you feel welcome. Gathered in, wrapped in hugs, embraced with encouraging words. Even when you are new, you feel at home.
I found that in Allume, in Five Minute Friday, in blogging, in the God's Sized Dream team, it's community and I belong.
Friends I've never met, but feel so loved by.... Friends I got a chance to meet last October and miss like crazy. There is a welcoming and accepting no matter the background, no matter the country. We are one in Christ... unity.
I blog for community and connection and I find that on twitter and in the comment section of my blog and those of my friends. I always feel at home and I hope that I can help others feel at home, too.
It's great to belong to the body of Christ and the #FMFParty community...
PS. CAN'T WAIT for ALLUME!!!!
and a bonus minute to share a picture because I found out that the lovely Ann Voskamp was hosting Five Minute Friday this week!
Ann makes you feel like you belong! I had the opportunity to meet her at Allume last fall and she welcomed me with open arms... and she called me by my name (how is that for belonging?) ... she also laughed with me, as I fluffed my hair for a picture... what can I say? I wanted to look my best! :) and I can't wait to see her again this October at Allume!
