Random thoughts on time gone by and why we have the things we do in today's world.
Whatever happened to the day when kids actually played and used their imaginations with blocks and stuffed animals that needed animation from their own mouths...instead of mechanical plastic toys that usually plunk them in front of the television or baby their impatient attitudes?
Whatever happened to the day when you waited until you got home to talk on the phone? What has turned our society into something so impatient that now we have to have a tiny machine next to our brain because we might miss a call.
Whatever happened to the day when you didn't need social media or book trailers to sell a book. Because a book sold itself because a book was the only form of honest and fulfilling and clean entertainment.
Whatever happened to the day when you could watch a movie on tv that had language in it and know it would be edited out. It would be a once a year treat at Thanksgiving when the movie played with cleanliness and fun.
Whatever happened to the day when if you badmouthed your elder you were popped in the mouth? No matter if they knew you or not. And your mother always found out later.
Whatever happened to the day when we actually had patience. Food didn't have to be cooked in under a minute. Internet didn't need to be gigs faster and we didn't need to have a million things in front of our eyes needing to be done at one time.
Whatever happened to the day when kids actually were active and went outside. Had chores and stayed busy instead of watching video games and gaining weight.
Whatever happened to the day when Jesus's name was sacred. Shared in reverent tones and people weren't afraid to share their love for Him. His name was proclaimed from the street corners and you weren't throw in jail because of it. When the Bible was a sacred document and studied with a hunger to know and love Him more.
Whatever happened to the day when we lived. And lived life to the fullest according to God's plan. What happened to living that turned into just being?
Being that is just mediocre. Nothing special, nothing great. Whatever happened to those that stood on principle and the Bible's standards?
Whatever happened to living our lives for Christ? Instead of believing that one moment at the alter would guarantee a permanent spot in the Throne Room. And we thus lived our lives like a common sinner. Whatever happened to our morals?
