~Object 5~ A Telephone

Behold the wonder: a girl sits on her bed in her room, talking with a friend who is sitting on her bed in her room  thirty minutes north.  The humble device is so easy to take for granted, for we remember no time without it, but just stop and consider the miracle that the telephone is.  To have the ability to hear the voice of a person on the other side of the world as clearly as if they were sitting right next to you.

The girl had been feeling lonely, but without having to leave her house she discussed everything that had been on her heart for the past few weeks, all because of this beautiful machine.

It takes one's voice, sends it up to something, and down into another's ear.  A thousand years ago people might have laughed at the idea.  It's no wonder some people were scared of telephones when they were first used in houses.

Rather than just picking it up next time, try to really contemplate what you are doing, what a blessing that simple little object in your hand is...and enjoy it.


Over and out,


P.S.  Any ideas for "objects?"  I'd love to hear them!  Please contact me!


  1. I got to talk to two of my best friends in the world at the same time a few days ago, and they live on the other side of the continent. Technology is really such a gift from God.

    1. Oh how fun! Yes, I'm definitely thankful to live during the 21st century! =)
