My image of myself is this organized, structured person. I even have a schedule for checking email or Twitter or Face Book on my mobile. (That doesn’t count texts from family and friends.) Or maybe I should say, I did have a schedule! Under the circumstances, it’s all but disappeared. If my phone dings, I’m checking it. Forget any schedule. I want to see photos and laugh at jokes and hear how my family and friends are doing. One of my friends says she could live like the monks of old, alone for years at a time. I seriously doubt that, because she sure enjoyed getting out for dinner with me and other friends several times a week before this came up. I believe God included a desire to communicate as part of our human nature. He wanted us to need to communicate, with him and with each other. How wonderful to understand our Savior sacrificed himself so we could be reconciled into a deep intimate relationship with our Father! Thank you, Lord! Did I just hear a ding?
