Getting To Know You

I am in awe of people who are able to share random facts about their lives on Twitter and/or Facebook and actually makes them sound interesting.

And when I say "in awe", I am not being ironic or using literary passive-agressive terminology. I, truly, am literally amazed.

I wonder how people can take their day-to-day life information and turn it into a window, a sneak peek, into their personality, their nature, their home, their heart.

It makes me wonder at how people like that are wired because I don't think I process quite the same way.

And I am detailed person.

Trust me.

It just makes me realize afresh how unique and different we all are and how much I have to learn from people.

As a newlywed blogger, I learn from the others out there who are navigating their way through this world, in their way, in their own space.

I think in the end, I am thankful for how these social media outlets, while they cannot in any way replace face-to-face, hold-your-hand, cry-on-my-shoulder connections, offer a window into the minds and the souls of people who we might otherwise never have a chance to know.

I have always believed that every relationship shows us another aspect of who The Father is.

And I am pretty excited for all the many ways that I have to learn about who my Dad is!

Love this post! It is also interesting to me how people can post fun things on fb and twitter instead of the boring, "I'm reading a book" or "Just ate chips and salsa!"

HI Lindsey!
I am a detailed person too! I am awe of people who update their status every 5 minutes on Facebook....I'm not that detailed and don't have time to be! You are right, so many different people in this world, so many gifts and personalities to share to help us appreciate who our heavenly Father is! I always say that I think it's amazing that our Creator takes basic features like our 2 eyes, nose, mouth and creates millions of combinations and looks! Surely, Father knows best and he is all powerful, all knowledgeable, all loving, and oh so very creative! Thanks for sharing and letting us get to know you better on NOBH!

I don't spend much time on Twitter or Facebook because I find so many bloggers interesting enough. Wow the windows that have been opened for us with this medium. I know my faith is stronger just from the Christians I have met through blogging.

Less judgment maybe? Our Father is amazing at providing for our needs.

@Jen
I know! It still amazes me, and I try to learn from those people!

@Tracy
I know...I think it is pretty cool because many of those people just do updates on their phones as they are going through their day and they make giving you a window into their world very interesting. I also agree that the Father is SO creative in His endless combinations of people!

@Lynda
I agree...so amazing the doors to connect with people that would probably NEVER have met in our lives! And I agree...I think it helps us to be less judging of people because we here their hearts. So beautiful!
