In this age of technology, where everything is designed to be quick and efficient, it seems that we think our communication needs to fall under this category as well. There are many times I am thankful for this technology since things like Skype, FaceTime, and email have introduced a wonderful avenue to stay in contact with our friends and family that live miles away. But sadly, our reliance on technology seems to be crippling our ability to communicate with those we love using our very own heartfelt, handwritten words. Instead of finding words to describe our compassion, love, or joy, we quickly send a text with the words, “Congratulations”, “So sorry for your loss”, “praying for you”. Then off we go, rushing back into our day, with little or no remembrance of our friend’s joy or sorrow. That may not happen in all cases, but I fear it happens far too often. Is there a beautiful, deeper way to correspond with one another which has seemingly been forgotten over time? God has created us with a desire for communication. One way to satisfy that yearning is through the written word.
