I love this poem 😀

I always comment to a blogging friend of mine how amazing it is the way we form friendships through blogging – how some bloggers just become your “regulars” and then become friends.  We have “real life” friends and relatives and yet a bond is formed with people you have never met and may likely never meet – lives become intertwined. 

So this is to the friends I’ve made through blogging….



Dear Lord?

        Every single evening
        As I’m lying here in bed,
        This tiny little Prayer
        Keeps running through my head:
        God bless all my family
        Wherever they may be,
        Keep them warm and safe from harm
        For they’re so close to me.
        And God, there is one more thing
        I wish that you could do;
        Hope you don’t mind me asking,
        Please bless my computer too.
        Now I know that it’s unusual
        To Bless a motherboard,
        But listen just a second
        While I explain it to you, Lord.
        You see, that little metal box
        Holds more than odds and ends;
        Inside those small compartments
        Rest so many of my friends.
        I know so much about them
        By the kindness that they give,
        And this little scrap of metal
        Takes me in to where they live.
        By faith is how I know them
        Much the same as you
        We share in what life brings us
        And from that our friendships grew.
        Please take an extra minute
        From your duties up above,
        To bless those in my address book
        That’s filled with so much love.
        Wherever else this prayer may reach
        To each and every friend,
        Bless each e-mail inbox
        And each person who hits “send”.
        When you update your Heavenly list
        On your own Great CD-ROM,
        Bless everyone who says this prayer
        Sent up to
