Notice how often we personify things? My mom always loved to do that “don’t kick that chair, how would you like to be kicked? That probably hurt.” “That poor little frozen pine cone it looks like it is so sad freezing in that snow.” We do it in an effort to identify with things to make a connection.
We all so desperately want to be connected. I think it is a need that God places within our hearts because we should ultimately be connected, intertwined and merge into one with God. So in this life we search for that completion. Through relationships, common interest as well as the simple act of personification.
