As I write this blog, Ruthe and I are on the road from Memphis to Little Rock. Heavy traffic, bad road, great company.
I just “skyped” with one of my children who is in Africa – as Ruthe drove down I40! I saw that adult child and spouse via webcam. We caught up with each other, laughed, made plans – all in real time.
Think about it. When my father was born, international telephone calls were rare and very expensive. Telegrams were used. Letters were the the most frequent means of communication.
When we served as missionaries in the mid-80’s, ham radios were the communication devices du jour. The cost of international calls was prohibitive.
Today, with a Verizon mobile device and a free app, I can communicate from almost anywhere to almost anywhere.
Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to be alive and serve you today!
