Romans 12:1-2

So here's what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you. Romans 12:1-2

Am I Distracted?

Screentime

Funny little connotation.  Spending time with a screen?  I say I'm counter-culture and I "think" I don't spend as much time with screen as "others" do, but that's really not true. If I'm sitting in my recliner, I likely have my smart phone AND my Kindle with me.  I had both of those last night as we watched a movie.  Hubby had his laptop.  Even as I write this, I have multiple tabs open:  my plan book, my lead teacher's plan book, other blogs, my school email and a restaurant menu (we're headed to OKC for the marathon and Hubby needs to "carb up").

Ann Voskamp had a wonderful "screen" post.  That's what prompted my thoughts.  Here is her link:

My goal for this week is to have more face-to-face time than screen time.  I want to be a good example.
