Growing up, I did not often get to see my friends during summer vacations. This is mostly because they lived in town, and I lived further away in the country.
We spent our summers writing to each other. These were not the kind of letters that are typed in an email and sent with the click of a mouse. These were the old fashioned, hand written letters that required an envelope and stamp for mailing.
We went back and forth all summer writing stories of our summer adventures. We discussed the upcoming school year, wondering if the cute kid in class was finally taller than us, and described in detail our new haircuts and school clothes.
My friendships grew through those letters. By the time school started, there was no catching up to do. We merely continued our conversations from our letters.
Today, we can instantly connect with our friends and loved ones even if they are thousands of miles away. With changing technology that continues to evolve the way we communicate with others, one thing will never change – our communication with God.
We have always had an immediate communication line with God. There has never been the need to mail a letter or send a text message.
The line of communication is always open because He wants to communicate with us.
