This world of today’s technology is mind-boggling for a girl who didn’t have a television until she was in the 6th grade, nor had seen one.
Most of my growing up years we had a party line and a neighbor who consistently listened in on our conversations, when this would happen to me I would respond by saying “Nadine would you please get off the line.” A bit rude probably, but I’m sure I was thinking she might tell mom my conversation.
[a party line is where three families used the same phone line and it was identified by one, two, or three rings, ours was anyway]
Prior to this, one of my girlfriends family operated the local switchboard in our small town. This meant you had to ring central [operator] and give them the number you wanted to call and they would plug you in [and could listen if they chose to do so, of course THAT never happened.
In all of our information, high-tech and constant changing world, is it any wonder there is a bit of confusion, as I said it becomes mind-boggling.
Some months ago I thought I just want to focus on reading the red.
“Read the Red” the words Jesus said…
My friend Carol and I joked we were going to get tee shirts made that said ,
Read the Red!
I know we need the balance in reading all the scripture but, to take time and
Read the red….is profoundly life changing!
Recently I purchased a book I had heard of called “The Greatest Words ever spoken” by Steven K Scott…..
He has organized over 1,900 statements o f Jesus under more than 200 topics…The Red Words!
Every word Jesus ever spoke…to use as a reference book or topical study..
I don’t know about you but I want to drink deep and it seems as if I am ever thirsty…not wanting to stay in the dry place I have walked through..
but to come up higher..
What about you?
I would love to hear some feedback..
