I am taking a break from Facebook and Blogging, and really the whole internet, for at least a week. I'm thinking about breaking up with the TV too. It's going to be difficult, but I want to prove to myself that I can do this...that it is possible to live without media. I feel slightly convicted that I spend way too much time doing nothing of worth. Not that there is anything wrong with FB, Blogging, email, etc., I just need to be away from it for some time. I want to have time for the more important things in life, like quality time with my husband and maybe get some reading done. Possibly pick up my guitar and learn something new. Go on a walk and cook a real dinner. I'll be back, I promise. I have to, the blog birthday give away is coming soon! I just need some me time without the distraction of the world. And you can be praying for me (and Brent, you better believe I am not doing this alone) that I would find ways to fill my time, without feeling like I need to change my status, update the blog, watch Jon and Kate, etc. I leave you with one of my favorite passages of scripture:
Two things I ask of you, O Lord;
do not refuse me before I die:
Keep falsehood and lies far from me,
give me neither poverty or riches,
but give me only my daily bread.
Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you
and say, "Who is the Lord?"
Or I may become poor and steal,
and so dishonor the name of my God.
Proverbs 30: 7-9
