1 Corinthians 13:12
For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
Facebook is an awesome tool for social interaction. Although I'll be the first to admit I dislike many of the recent changes, I have much invested in friends, family, and blogging here. Unless something utterly drastic occurs, I can't see myself changing venues.
As most of you probably did, I started out on Facebook connecting with people I knew personally, ones I had met face to face. This gradually evolved into a much larger orbit where I was including news-feeds, inspirational sites, and inviting friends of friends to join my ever-expanding circle. I dare say these people whom I've befriended, yet have never interacted with in person, comprise a good quarter of the 287 contacts I currently enjoy.
While we can gain much insight into the personalities of friends whom we've never physically met, we are still peering through a darkened glass, a dim mirror.
We can read their comments, but cannot hear their voices.
We see their faces in photos, but cannot observe the subtle change of expressions.
We enjoy their sense of humor, but never hear their laughter.
We can love and treasure them, but never show them with a touch or a hug.
The circle is deep and wide and filled with thoughtful, caring people from all walks of life, but it is incomplete.
So are we - unfinished works of love, walking in faith and hope through all our days until the one arrives which calls us home.
The day when faith becomes sight and hope is fulfilled as we see, face to face, the One whose love for us endures forever.
