Thankful Thursday – Communication

Wow! It’s been ages since my last TT post and I am so grateful to be doing this again. Today, on this fine Thursday afternoon, I am thankful especially for communication in all it’s various forms.

  • I am thankful for my phone – without it I would not get to hear dh’s voice. Each time I pick up the phone and he is at the other end, I wonder how I would have survived in the post-telephone era.
  • I am thankful for the internet for a number of reasons. One is being part of a community of women who love God. Another is the Daily Audio Bible; I cannot thank God enough for this. I have a theory that the Bible was meant to be read aloud to a congregation. . .  I don’t know but we read about Jesus reading the word in the synagogue and I cannot remember any instance in the Bible where he went away by himself to read the Scriptures. Oh well, this is just me and it does not mean I will give up reading my Bible, I still do that. But if you like being read to, the Daily Audio Bible is definitely the way to go!
  • Facebook! How can I not be grateful for this site? It allows me to keep in touch with my friends back in Nigeria. Of course it is no substitute for having the friends with you but still. . .

Thankful Thursday is a meme which allows you to take a day out to stop and think and remember what you have to be thankful for. Things may not be going as you want them to; in fact, you might be in a really bad place right now. But if you stop and think about it, there is always (and I mean always) something to be thankful for.
