I don’t say that to brag, in fact it’s a little embarrassing.
I was going to pretend that we didn’t have them until I realized I was sending emails with the message “sent from my iPhone” tagged on the end. And then I joined instagram, where people inevitably found me.
I guess it’s embarrassing because I used to be really snobby about iPhones. I thought I was wayyy too good for that kind of exclusive technology. What a waste of money and time and energy!
And then we bought them. I was sucked in by the language apps. I’m completely dependent on Husband here in Korea, but not with my iPhone. I can do things! Say things! Find things! And the idea of conveniently taking 8 gazillion pictures of BP every day when she’s born makes me happy, too.
Here in Korea, iPhones are cheap. We pay a relatively low monthly payment (we don’t need a lot of data because the entire country of Korea is basically wireless). And we got the phones for “free.” It was such a great deal that I seriously thought we were buying fake phones until we synched them in iTunes.
I’m still kind of in shock. I mean, who are we? Buying a car? Eating cheese? Drinking hot chocolate whenever we want? Buying chips and salsa? Buying iPhones?
We’re seriously spoiled, and we know it.
We always pray that the things we have would be used to bless other people. It will be interesting to see what happens with these silly phones of ours.

PS. I feel much better today. Thanks for praying!
