Texting vs. Talking on the Phone

Today's topic has been on my heart for a while now and I thought it was time to share it with you all. We get so wrapped up in social media and our phones. Most people now a days have some form of smart phone and are usually on it constantly. I am just as guilty as the next person. We depend on our phones as a way of communication with our friends.

Texting has become the trend. Most people use texting more then actual phone calls because its convenient or easy. I actually miss talking on the phone to my friends. Texting to me is so impersonal. I really like having that connection of voices. I know it takes more time then texting does but really to me it's worth the time just to hear their voice.

Why did I want to write about this? What started the conversation in my head? Well let me tell you. Most of you know I lost my grandma back in January. Life is short and no one knows how long they have. In a moment life could change. I know for me it has.

We need to make time for the people we care about the most. Take time today to call someone you care about whether it's a parent, spouse, sister, or friend. Tomorrow is never promised. Even if it's only 15 minutes once a week I say it's totally worth it. 

Cherish the moments! Don't have regrets! I would give anything to have one more conversation with my grandma on the phone. Just to hear her voice. I regret not calling her more often. I promise to be better with my friends and sisters and the ones I love. I don't want to have anymore regrets. 

I hope this encourages you all today. Tomorrow is never promised so cherish the moments and memories you have before its too late.

  1. Nicely said, Grace. Thank you for the encouragement. My Mommy has been gone 10 years this month. I don't really have any regrets, b/c I believe we did keep up a good phone relationship (before smart phones-back in the "dark ages" when you only had a set amount of minutes/month.Hard to imagine, isn't it.) But I still think of her so often, miss her or wish I could talk to her about something that happened in a day or to ask her advice. I know and look forward to our embrace, when someday, Jesus will call me home. In the meantime, Yeah, keep talking for connection! Lots and lots of love,
