Created For Meaningful Relationship

I believe society does a good job of helping us feel isolated. Surrounded by thousands, but known by few.102_1586

Don’t get me wrong, I am all about having access to the latest technology. I think phones, computers, tablets, mp3 players (and on and on) can be good tools. I, too, enjoy social media, although I do not let it control my life.

I think people want to be connected. They want friends that listen. They want to feel like they are a part of things.

So many times, we settle for status updates, instead of heart to hearts. We listen for the phone to ding, instead of the sound of laughter. We tweet in 140 characters or less, making it short and sweet. It is hard to soul search, when most things can be found through Google search.

We were created for meaningful relationship. We need to hold hands and hold hearts. Laugh out loud and shed tears. Hugs and saying the hard things. All of the emotions and messiness that good relationships bring……

God made us that way, and He called it good.
