In church this past weekend they were talking about things we’ve made our idols. Facebook came up. Can you believe it? I can. I’m online way too much. Facebook is part of it but not all of it. What about you? Do you text at the dinner table? Play your PS3 way into the night? Facebook and twitter a lot? Do you think you can stop? Can you slow the technology down?
I mean, if you think about it like this…when you are ready to die are you going to be thinking I wish I’d been on facebook more? I wish I’d played more PS3? No. My goal this week is to cut down my time spent online when my children are around. They are so important and the internet can wait.
It’s funny that my hubby and I had already been discussing this during the previous week. I’m on my blog blogging and he’s on PS3 at night. We are working on a plan that works for both of us. If I’m needing to be alone then I don’t mind him playing games. If I need to be with a human I need him to not be on the games. Same for him. We all have days we need to be alone. We also all have days we need to be with the ones we love. The internet is going nowhere and it can wait. Make it wait! Your family is your most prized possession. Let’s try to treat them that way.
