I always forget what a fantastic invention the telephone is.
And honestly, if the Lord has spoken to me this week it has been directly from my little cellular device. I have had more influential, comforting, reassuring phone conversations this week than I hardly know what to do with. They’ve been everything from hard and upsetting to easy and hilarious, but all things I needed to hear.
I have always been really bad about answering my calls and text messages in a timely manner, but I think being away from home has cured me of that*. I know it’s not a rocket-science-revelation, but just the sound of a familiar voice puts me right at ease.
*It also helps that my ringtone is Prince. The Purple One makes every call that more exciting.
