Internet Friends
What do you call them, these internet friends?
If you've never met, are they mere echoes in the wind?
Can they come and fix your tire when it goes flat?
Or help you pull your weeds that have grown into a mat?
Can you offer to bake for them their favorite lemon pie?
Or invite them to come for a meal, your famous stir-fry?
Recently the word "pseudo" came up in reference to them.
But i'm still debating if i should shout a convincing "Amen!"
Author's Notes:
are your internet friends real friends.  if you've never met, touched, or seen their face are their
words just words on a page?

"are you internet friends real friends"....well this I surely hope so. I believe a friend is a friend it doesnt matter where they are or whether you have met face to face. Friendship is determined by what someone adds to your life, and you my dear LJ have surely added something to mine.....therefore you are my friend.

Internet friendships are similar to "pen pals" of old. These were friendships based on trust. I liken internet friendships to faith. "Faith is to believe what you do not yet see; the reward for this faith is to see what you believe." ~Saint Augustine  OR  "Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen." ~Bible, Hebrews 11:1 Yet technology has advanced so much that we can actually see and hear our internet friends as if we were sitting in the same room with them. As with any friendship we should trust our instincts, exercise our powers of discernment, be cautious while still being motivated by something honorable and not by suspicion and fear of the unknown. Are all internet friendships honorable? No, they are not. Are all internet friendships dishonorable? No, they are not. Just as it is with all other friends whether they live a block from you or a thousand miles from you. Are internet friends "real"? They are real people, real flesh and blood, with real emotions and they are living life just as we are. Yes, they are as real as real can be...that doesn't make them sincere or favorable. But then, these same people are taking a chance on you too...are you real? This is great food for thought Linda Jo.

Friendship can be all of these
A friendship can put your mind at ease
In the World that is full of lies

Sometimes it is hard to see thru the disguise

Life is full of lessons learned
Sometimes true friendship must be earned
Internet friends can be fun -you should know

You are one! Thanks for being my friend.
