This is Not Phoney   Leave a comment

I had forgotten my phone, so when she stepped out of the car, I asked her to give me hers so I could look something up. Intentionally, I stopped to take in my surroundings – and decided not to use the IPhone as my time-filler default, while I waited for Lisa to come out of the store.

Before I drifted away by surfing the web, or to open an app to write a note, I glanced to my right and noticed my neighbors, parked alongside our vehicle. They were clinging to their devices too – So, of course, I used mine to photograph theirs.

I’m reminded that it requires discipline to resist what may be a distraction – and instead use quiet, and alone time as opportunities to be still, to pray, and to meditate –

What might happen? I’m listening.
