I wrote about this verse already and it seemed to be a clear indication that it needed to be in my memory bank. I truly hate that I will not likely live as near to my physical sister as I have in the past (at least until our nursing home days!), but I need to open myself to the spiritual sisters that I do live near! I have had a taste of the sisterhood in the blogosphere, and I love it, but as I agree with a friend who said last night that physical connection is different! It's hard to hug, lay hands on, or catch all the expressions of people across the wires. I'm excited to deepen my family bonds!
Proverbs 27:10 (NASB) "Do not forsake your own friend or your father's friend, and do not go to your brother's house in the day of your calamity; Better is a neighbor who is near than a brother far away.
