So there's a new word on the blog block, courtesy of Valarie who suggested it to Shannon at Rocks In My Dryer.
Mirl (v.)--acronymn for "Meet In Real Life";
description for the transition that occurs when
an on-line acquaintance becomes a friend you have
actually met face-to-face.
I like it! I have "mirled" a few people on-line and it has always been a good experience, sparking a long-time bond. Currently a blossoming friendship has become of a mirl-ing with my friend Ashlee at New Mama's Nest. I'd say things are moving in the right direction to meet up (or mirl) with FlipFlopMamma sooner than later, and I'm seeing great friendships form with my blogfriends O Mama Mia & Working Mom of 1.
I guess it's kinda like online friend shopping, this blogging thing. If only everyone we met in life came with a few writing samples explaining their likes & dislikes and summarizations of their everyday life.
And now I leave you with something plucked from yesterday's message in church- something to think about as you start your week. A headstart to live it to the fullest.
I came that you may have life, and may have it abundantly.
He did not come to give us a little life. You can read 'little' as a tiny, unimportant life. Or 'little' as in a short life. He came for the sole-purpose of us; He sacrificed His Life so that we could live life to the fullest- that we would have an abundant life. Live your life like it is worth something today. Because it is. He said so.
