Kate Motaung Five Minute Friday

I'm glad I Visited

If I hadn't visited this site, I wouldn't have met you. I know we don't share the personal spaces, we don't sit over coffee, we don't see each other's faces and expressions and hear the voices and meet the spouses and kids and pets. But what I read I hold in my heart, I remember in prayer, I keep in my thoughts. It is these things that keep me coming back.

If I hadn't visited I’d have missed a challenge. I wouldn't have grown the same way. I'm thankful. Because I Visited I visit your other sites, I pray for you. I add you to my circle of friends and I will know you when we meet in heaven if we never meet on Earth.

It doesn't take much time or effort to visit. We know a little more of Christ when we visit His people, no matter in person or online. And isn't that one of main desires, to know Him more?

Christ visited us from heaven and took on our frail nature and identified with every weakness and sin. He was our greater visitor and still wants to abide in and with us every moment. He never tires of our company nor refuses an open heart. We never need be alone.

So I will be visiting you and not invading your space, taking your time, or interrupting your dinner. I'll let you know I was here, even if very briefly, cause I have always loved a good visit.


  1. Mary, I love this! Thank you for welcoming me as your visitor this way. I'm grateful you are part of the Five Minute Friday community, too. Bless you this weekend! Love, your FMF neighbor

  2. Love this! So glad we take the time to visit each other. I'm in the #3 spot this week.

  3. Mary, this is so heartwarmingly beautiful...and I was having a cup of decaf when I read it.

    French vanilla!

  4. I enjoyed your post and my visit here. I'm sitting here listening to the birds, chirp, sipping my Colombian coffee, and enjoying my morning visit with you. :-)

  5. I love this:"...I will know you when we meet in heaven if we never meet on Earth." So precious, Mary. It feels me with joy knowing that one day we will all be together, embracing one another, forever with our Father. Amen! Happy to connect with you this week :)

  6. "We know a little more of Christ when we visit His people, no matter in person or online." That is so true and I have loved my visits with the FMF community for that reason. There is always something that teaches me or encourages me in knowing Jesus more. Visiting from #9 today!

  7. This makes me think of the value of stepping forward. To visit takes initiative. And what a blessing it is to have a visitor and be a visitor. The opportunity to share and grow can't be without that step forward. That is is definitely one reason I like FMF.
