Ahhhh! It was so bizarre turning on the TV this morning, only to have nothing on the screen. NO, we didn't get service cut off for not paying our bill on time. It was a choice we made as a couple. We decided that our relationship with God, each other, and baby G are what is most valuable. Plus so much of our hard earned money went to the dish in the yard. In May alone we have his dedication, family coming to town, surgery for G, a new house, and a town home to pack up. Busy.
These precious days with G are just to amazing to miss. And for what? Because we have a DVR filled with shows we "need" to watch, just to make room for other recorded shows? How ridiculous is that? We love DVR, but watching our shows became an item on our checklist. Sad right?
It is funny how much I got done in just a few short hours. Normally we feed Mr. Man, then J. and I watch TV to kick-start the day. Hmmmm...would there be something better to kick-start our day? Perhaps a few minutes with the Lord, each other, and a cup of freshly brewed coffee. That was the ticket this morning!
We are so thankful for each moment we get on this earth, and our hope is that we can maximize the time we are blessed with. Life has been a blur at times, and even more so now that we are parents. Here's hoping that cutting out TV will help make the blur less frequent.
Turn your eyes up on Jesus,
and look full in HIS wonderful face,
and the things of earth will grow strangely dim
in the light of HIS glory and grace.
Enjoy a blessed Sunday. I know we will!
