Welcome {Day 3 - 31 Days & #FMF}

Today's 31 Day of Practice post is also my contribution to Five Minute Friday over at Gypsy Mama.  It's a wonderful gathering {she called it a flash mob} of writers who write for five minutes, no editing, no over thinking, and then link up.  If you haven't already tried it, it's a great exercise to practice you writing...

Today's Topic - Welcome
 
The first thing I thought of was the day we walked into our church.  We were visitors to a conference, and the welcome we received was tremendous.  I remember having two toddlers in tow, hubs dropping us off at the door and then parking the car.  With the kiddos, getting anywhere was a feat, but the greeters at the door, they scooped up kids and opened doors, offered me some calming hugs and made us feel so welcome.

Who would have known that would become our home church just five years later.

But I say all that to say this.  

Welcome.

I know what a real welcome feels like, and that is what I desire visitors to feel when they stop by my blog...welcome.

I offer you lots of hugs as you join me from time to time.  I offer to help carry burdens, and hopefully offer some comfort and encouragement as well.  We are all in our own process, and whatever I can do, or whatever I may have written, I pray it blesses you as you read.

Please feel free to leave any prayer requests or thoughts in the comments and PLEASE leave your email address so that I can connect further with you...I love that! ♥

Welcome....
