The Velveteen Rabbit

She’s probably going to kill me for writing this, but please would you go and read my friend Marissa’s blog post today? It awed and inspired and challenged me and I loved every word she wrote.

The Velveteen Rabbit, by Marissa

My favourite part:

We live in a world of disconnectedness. I mean we have all the means to be connected but most of us waste so much time (me included) on our computers or texting on our phones that we are not even present when we are physically with someone. But here’s the cool thing for me- In a world of broken relationships my job is to lead people to the One who can restore those relationships. In a world where everyone is disconnected, my job is to connect with people and make sure they feel loved and cared for.


All that AND also she let’s me come to her house and drink all the kriek in the fridge. Which makes her an amazing friend.
