No, this particular Flower Power is not about polyester bell-bottoms or Woodstock or hippies.
It's about the colorful collage made when the virtual again became real, when fellow blogger Melinda and I spent an amazing day that included lunch and a saunter through Scottsdale's Fashion Square.
Whether munching or chatting, I felt from the git-go that I'd known this dimpled beauty for the entirety of my life! Her easy laugh, warm eyes and authenticity is that rare blend found in few. It's the sort of stuff that makes for life-long friendships.
For some time now we've been visiting each other's blogs, and periodically sharing email when encouragement and prayer are needed. How providential, then, that Melinda's travels would take her from her Ft. Worth roost to my own neighborhood!
Melinda's been Traveling the Road Home with evangelistic passion for quite some time. She's a fierce advocate for the unborn, and has just recently launched the newest of ministry initiatives with Girlfriends in Real Life along with another of her virtual-to-real blogger buddies, Mary. You can be certain that their gIRL's will be coming to a venue near you in the months to come.
It's been an amazing week; and it's only Tuesday! In the span of 48 hours I've spent time with two ladies I've met here in Cyberspace; ladies that have forever changed my life.
Is blogging worthwhile? You bet!
