I just finished a conversation on Skype with my brother who is on vacation in North Carolina. Earlier today, Eileen’s sister’s family talked on Skype to their daughter who is visiting Germany. We talk to our daughter and our son's family on Skype regularly. For those not familiar with Skype, it is a free service which allows one to have a video/audio conversation with anyone in the world through a computer camera.
Well, whether it is Skype or another mode of communication, conversation is a very important aspect of relationships. Too often, time and distance creates disharmony in relationships as we don’t make the necessary efforts to nurture the relationship. Come to think of it, it doesn’t really take distance to precipitate communications falling apart; it just takes a lackadaisical effort towards a relationship. When we think of it, much of our happiness is found in the relationships we have with God, family, and friends. It’s good to keep those relationships in good communication!!
