There’s only so much loving I can do through a computer screen…
and I want to do oh so much more for you all…
but I cannot, as I can only pour out so much when the method of delivery is man-made and technological, and this makes me sad in more ways than you could ever know.
I long to embrace and enjoy the physical presence of so many whom I have never encountered in person; people who’ve impacted me beyond many with whom I have breathed the same town air for decades.
My closest and dearest are the furthest and far-flung.
I desire to hear their laughter ringing in my ears, sneak peeks at the sight of faces beautiful, and previously confined to internet tabs and the compact means that ensnare my universe into a mobile phone…and yet I am denied by sheer distance.
Thank the Lord my prayers for you all are collected and valued by God.
