Technology really isn't all its cracked up to be. Really, does instant access make us more in tune with God, or does it simply add to the din of a world gone crazy.  Loved the part about letters reaching you in the field and once you got them, the crisis was over.

Betty, thank you for sharing this story and allowing us to join in prayer. We have no idea...and I'm stunned at my ignorance.

I like how you brought in the stoics.  They found a way to detach from society -- and from emotions. I think that's true today in many ways. The most dour people are the ones who are trying to show the world how pure they are.

We have various forms of simplicity brewing today. And there's really some peace that one gains with less. But it can become a God too. You never eat unless you have a coupon. You never shop unless it's a sale. You stand at the counter and haggle for discounts. Some of that is just embarrassing! 

But from a personal level, I am at my most content when I have a few treasured things and I'm not chasing.

If we are not afraid of death, and the sting is gone, then we can truly live. Great reminder from this child!
