I've come to realize that there's no such thing as coincidence because things like this happen all too frequently. This is God, using one of His creatures, to answer a question. I invite you to read Matthew's most recent post "What's your idle?" (Click HERE)
Although not all of the "idles" he cites are problems of mine, I can certainly learn to put down my smartphone, among others. How about you?
