a phone call makes all the difference

my 2-year old boy Jeremiah gave me a phone call today.. he doesn’t know his numbers (yet) and he has only tried to talk to one other person over the phone.. but yesterday, there i am sitting at the ch.office, and i get a phone call, and it sounds like a very young boy, and he kept saying Daddy.. Daddy.. Daddy.. and i ask for some animals, and it turns out to be my boy!! he must’ve stumbled onto a redial button on one of the cordless phones at home (turns out he used our cellular phone).. and we talked for a few minutes.. it was an incredible feeling! my boy is smarter than any of us imagined…

my thought today was that many people are normal, just trying to survive, get through life, no frill, go through the routines of working, eating, resting.. maybe add a few personal hobbies.. but few recognize their internal compulsion to make a significant change to the world, as the world is given to us in an chaotic state and each person is supposed to move it towards order. that’s my take on life and the role of the individual and the community

the other thought was re: marriage and divorce.. marriages weren’t meant to be carried and shouldered by the husband and wife alone– it’s no wonder when the times get tough, and the issues get more personal, deeper, more core, that one or both want out.. the couple has to refrain from isolation, and be a part of a community, and the community together upholds the marriage, not as a commitment to the institution, but a commitment to the relationship between the husband and wife, and the relationship of the couple to the community
