I have much to write to you, but I do not want to use paper and ink. Instead, I hope to visit you and talk with you face to face, so that our joy may be complete. - 2 John 1:12
It's easy to hide behind my screens and write emails and texts. But if that is all I do my world becomes a virtual reality and relationships suffer. I see that John, your man in the New Testament, even knew the extreme value of a face to face meetings where we touch and feel the nuances of each other's feelings and thoughts. Body language, tone and facial expressions help us fully experience the power of relationship. Help me Jesus to discipline myself to stay in there with people and give them face to face time as much as my life will allow. Give me the courage and wisdom to pick up the phone and call or get in the car and go see them for their benefit and mine.

God creates joy in his people when they gather under grace to accomplish positive things.
