This week, Christie and I are working on some habits. We decided to fast from a distraction, and replace that time with conversation, devotion, and rest. Since we have a dvr, we'll watch a few of our favorite shows by skipping commercials next weekend ;-)
One of the things we've been reminded is how little we miss the distraction, and how much we gain without it. Our children have had fun playing at night instead of watching a favorite tv show, and we've had fun being reminded by our kids that we can't watch tv either.
One of the best things has been replacing that time. Yes, we've still been busy.... but we've done some good things as well. Last night I had some great conversation with Christie about our day. That could never be replaced!
So...... start some new habits this week. Turn off the computer, the tv, the video game, and dive into the word. Dive into some good conversation with your family. Dive into some walks around the neighborhood to meet some neighbors and point people to Christ. You'll be glad you did!
