On with life . . .

Yes, you are right, it has been over a month since I last posted on this blog. My apologies! I have been spending less time on the computer and more time in life! It's not that I don't enjoy working on my website and blog, it's just that I've come to realize that life is much too precious to spend in front of a computer screen!

I'm not sure how I came to that realization, but for those of you who may be addicted to the Internet, please listen carefully.

Those people around you, your family and friends that mostly see the back of your head these days, deserve to have more of your attention. You are not with your kids just because you are home, if you are otherwise occupied. You are not growing in your relationship with your spouse if you spend most of your time in virtual reality. And you are certainly not growing in your spiritual life if you are only researching or reading about spiritual things.

You see, to have a relationship with God is to spend time in communion with him. Sometimes that is resting quietly; sometimes it is being fully engaged with your family. But always, it is embracing life!

Have you checked out of life because you prefer sitting at a computer, staring at a screen? Do something with someone, in person, TODAY! You will be glad you did!

God bless,
