Imagine the selfies!

Reading my daily verses today…

… ruminating … that inner eye … that whispered voice … olfactory memory bank … over-worked tastebuds … touching and being touched … sharing and connected … joined in the One with the One of the One …

I am so glad they didn’t have smart phones and cameras and all the gadgets we take for granted today.

“Without pictures I had to paint my own from your words. Beautiful. Beautiful memories. Beautiful pictures.” paulfg
“Aw shucks. Thanks Paul.” winged prisms

”It’s amazing how you can read a common/popular story and its uniqueness still glows to remind us that new revelations are ever before us.” be inspired
It Began at a Tree

And the verses today?

‘Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust consume and where thieves break in and steal; but store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust consumes and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.’ Matthew 6:19-21

I am so glad they didn’t have smart phones and cameras … imagine the selfies!!

  1. Photos of anything and everything are posted for the world to see but memories are precious, priceless, held and savored. Much harder to share yet cling to you in ways a photo never can. Full of love and smells to trigger them just like His presence is felt, comforts but never contained…

  2. I read somewhere that people who take pictures of events remember less detail about them. I guess there is a difference between capturing a moment and living in the moment. Great food for thought this morning 🙂

    • Good morning Cate, I just replied to Julie’s comment and then saw your below. Now that is freaky!! Or just even more connected? 🙂

      My dad used to take pictures a lot. Except he also had the “oomph” to make up and complete albums. We still have as a family heirloom a cabinet with albums all in chronological order.

      And we remember!!!
