I found this post on Albert Mohler's blog. Cell phones certainly have reshaped the way in which we communicate. As I've said before on this blog, my wife and I are untethered from a land line. We got rid of our Verizon phone service two and a half years ago, and I am happy with that decision.
Many years ago (at least eight) I scoffed at the cell phone as an unnecessary luxury for spoiled teenagers. I have obviously amended that position over the years. I now see a cell phone as a vital tool. I love my Windows Mobile phone (HP iPaq 6945). It truly is an integrated communications system.
I have to say that one of my favorite uses for my cell phone is finding my wife in stores. Growing up, my mom could disappear into a store for hours, and no matter how many times I search every inch of the store I could not find her. When my wife and I have to separate while shopping and I can't find her, I just call to say "Where the heck are you?" If I'd only had the capability in my teen years.
