In communication, we have gone from word of mouth, to writing letters, to telegrams, to phone calls, to e-mails, to texting, to Facebook. We certainly have the resources today to communicate and speak to one another instantly and frequently. But no matter how many texts we receive or Facebook friends we have, there is still no substitute for being personally in the presence of those we love and those who love us.


Being Aware of God's Presence

One of the amazing conveniences we so take for granted is our ability to travel great distances in short periods of time. Back in the nineteenth century, many people migrated to the west on different trails by wagon train. The Oregon Trail that began in Kansas City was 2,170 miles long and brought the travelers to valleys in Oregon. That trip by covered wagon took four to five months at a rate of fifteen to twenty miles a day. Today we can easily travel that distance by airplane in a matter of hours and by car in a matter of a few days.
