The other day I was at church when I got a text message from my bestest friend. It said: Luke went out on "seizure." Well, some of her kids seem to go through little spells where they faint a lot, but never Luke, and they've never had actual siezures. I found the way she worded it a little odd, so I asked my husband if he thought that it meant that Luke had a seizure. He assumed it did, but I told him I was going to text back to be sure. He tried to tell me not to bother her, but I had to know. So I texted: Huh, Luke had a siezure?
A few minutes later I my phone beeped, and I quickly grabbed it. Here's what the text said: No. He was in Spelling Bee. Suddenly it all made sense to me. I had known about the spelling bee but had forgotten all about it. LOL Apparently she also sent the message to another friend who was teaching a class who actually stopped the class to pray for Luke, and who also prayed for him every time she woke up that night!
Communication is a funny thing sometimes, and people often misinterpret each other whether via text, e-mail, facebook, and even face to face. Thinking about that makes me appreciate my relationship with God all the more. He knows what I mean every single time, even when I don't even know myself!
