What if we traded TV in the evening for spending time with our spouse? What if we abandoned Facebook and Pinterest accounts and played with our kids? What if we sat down to dinner as families and had conversation and Grace? What if we just didn’t have all the video games, tablets, and computers, and had some board games, a garden, or building project? What if we went camping in a park, got out to experience nature, felt what it was like to be quiet and still, and look up and see stars?
What if every once in awhile we left some of the conveniences behind to figure out that we didn’t actually need them after all?
How would that change our perspective on our daily life and the “grind”?
We can either life intentionally or haphazardly. We can choose to be happy in the here and now, knowing of the promise of forever or we can choose to get caught in the here and now and miss out on the importance of the little things. Sometimes I know it is nice to unplug and be present in life.
