I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. ~John 15:15
Friendship is one of life's most precious gifts from God. Whatever would we do if we had no friends to count on, to empathize with, to love unconditionally, to cherish? Our days would be lonely and depressing, indeed.
That being said, I consider all of you who follow me here on Meditations of My Heart, whether or not you ever leave a comment, to be my friends. You've cared enough about my words and thoughts to subscribe to these posts, and that speaks volumes!
I can't deny that I've made many friends, and got reacquainted with others, during my years on Facebook. Maybe, some of you have depended upon seeing my posts there instead of subscribing, via email, directly to my blog. If that's the case, and you wish to continue reading what I write, I'm asking you to do so now.
You see, I've decided to break with Facebook at the end of this year. There are many reasons for my decision, not the least of which is the company's blatant bias against those who dare to speak up for or defend anyone who doesn't agree with its liberal agenda. This is a bold and vicious attack on our First Amendment right to free speech. I simply do not want to be a part of any organization that undermines our Constitution.
Though I will miss seeing so many of you on Facebook, I'm hoping that meeting up with you here at the blog, or possibly on the new social media platform, MeWe, will more than make up for that. It is my hope that you will subscribe today, and then pass on the link to Meditations of My Heart to friends and family whom you think would enjoy my writing.
That would be such a loving and meaningful Christmas gift for me, and I thank each and every one of you in advance for helping to spread the Christian-themed stories I share here with others.
May God continue to bless and keep you now and in the New Year!
