I've become one of those...

I have realized lately that I have become one of those people who love to forward emails.  So I would like to apologize to all my email friends for flooding their email accounts with jokes and fun reads.  I recently received and email and thought that it was beautiful and decided to post it on my blog.  I am not sure who actually wrote it so I am afraid I can't give credit, but I think it is a wonder prayer blessing our friends and families who we sometimes only get to correspond through the computer with.

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 (and blogging friends)
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 GOD.Com

I LOVE this! I may have to pass it on. It's so true. We grow close to these people we share parts of our lives with, don't we? Sometimes encouragement from my blog buddies is as important as a 'real' friend! God Bless all of you!
