I am absolutely amazed at how small the Internet makes our world. As I visit other sites I find so many people who have vacationed or driven through the same places as I, most of which are not the usual popular tourist attractions. I also come across others who live in or visit places where we have friends or relatives living. It is strange how stumbling upon these discoveries can give one an instant connection to another person they've never met face to face.
All this is another reminder that no matter our life experiences, good, bad or in between, someone else in this world has "been there, done that, has the tee-shirt to prove it" also. In this world we are never alone. We are all connected in some way. Those of us who have a relationship with the Lord have an even greater advantage, Isaiah 49:16, "Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me."
