I had the best social media timeline. My friends and family complimented me. I had thoughtfully crafted and curated all the content on display. The numerous likes and provoking comments from my many followers testified. One day, I had the highest number of visits, But a hunger of an absence lingered. What was missing? I prayed. I searched. I asked. “My God, My Lord, I have done so much, but you don’t visit my timeline.” The Lord answered. “Long before social media, on the sixth day of creation. I created the most beautiful timeline that will ever exist: The human heart. I visit it all the times. I have been looking at yours — Your beautiful online timeline is missing in your heart’s display.”
