Will There Be Cell Phones in Heaven? (standard:humor, 901 words)
Author: GodspenmanAdded: Feb 07 2016Views/Reads: 644/338Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Long before cell phones were ever thought of, God had a plan for us communicating with Him. All I need is to “call upon” God and His promises that He “will deliver” me. What more does a person need?
 



Last Tuesday started out like any other day except for one thing. I
overslept. 

Isn't it strange that when you have a full schedule you oversleep?
Normally, I am up at the crack of dawn. Sometimes I wish the dawn would 
not crack so loud, but then I would never get awake. 

In a strange way, I pride myself with being able to get up early in the
morning. At my age, I do not need that much sleep anymore and so it is 
my motto, “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy, wealthy 
and wise.” 

I think I have the healthy down, but the other two are nowhere to be
seen, at least from my bedroom window. Maybe I am not going to bed 
early enough and maybe I am not rising early enough. I have to think 
that through a little bit. 

Tuesday I had a very heavy schedule and it started out early in the
morning with appointments all throughout the day. I do not complain 
about a full schedule because it makes the day go faster. As far as I 
am concerned, the faster a day goes the better it is. 

It is not that often that I have a day filled with appointments, but it
does happen on occasion. Like, Tuesday. 

I would like to blame the alarm clock, but then I did not set it the
night before so that is out of the picture. 

When I did get up and realized how late I was, I put full steam forward
in motion and got to my first appointment. Fortunately, I was on time, 
but barely. 

It was right after the third appointment that something seemed a little
strange. I could not put my finger on it, but I knew something was 
wrong and I did not quite know what it was. I could not give too much 
thought to it because I had a busy schedule. 

It just irked me because I knew something was wrong and I could not
figure it out. 

By lunchtime I was quite hungry and satisfied that all of the
appointments went according to schedule. I was afraid the way my day 
started that it would affect everything else during the day. As luck 
would have it, and I do not count too much on luck, but the day was 
going quite nicely as planned. 

I just could not get away from something in the back of my head that was
bothering me. I checked to make sure I had the same socks on both feet. 
I have gone out with a blue sock on my left foot and a brown one on my 
right foot. If that isn't embarrassing. 

That was not the problem. My tie was okay. I had the right shirt on and
my pants were okay. But something was wrong. 

As I was eating lunch, I thought it would be nice to call the Gracious
Mistress of the Parsonage. After all, it was a busy day and she had 
just as busy a day as I did. I thought I would just touch base and tell 
her hi. 

I reached for my shirt pocket to get my phone and discovered, much to my
chagrin, that my shirt pocket was empty. That's right. Empty! 

I frantically searched my person and did not discover my cell phone
anywhere. Then I had one of those “aha” moments. I had left the house 
that morning in such a hurry that I forgot to pick up my cell phone. 
How was I going to get through the day without my cell phone? 

As I sat there finishing my lunch my fingers began to itch and twitch.
They were insisting that I text somebody. Anybody! But I had nothing 
upon which I could text. 

I cannot remember any day that I did not have my cell phone with me. It
is just one of those automatic things with me wherever I go. I need to 
be careful that I do not take it into the shower because that would be 
a disaster. Wherever I go, I always take my cell phone.
