Today, I dare you to have three conversations, none of which involve any technology whatsoever. Think about who and what to say and look them in the eye and say it and wait for a response. It doesn’t have to be long but you have to be engaged and smiling. I dare you. ❤
Ecclesiastes 3:1. “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: 2. a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, 3. a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, 4. a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, 5. a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, 6. a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, 7. a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, 8. a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.”
In college, I was a coffee addict. Working full time and going to college full time with a boyfriend and demanding family all lent to the leaning on help from coffee to stay awake and function. So I drank coffee all day long in college. And as the years have progressed, I drank less as I went. And now I am down to one morning cup for the whole day and sometimes don’t finish it. And I mention it because I notice these advantages:
1. I can go regularly. (You young pups wait a few years and you will get that one. Lol)
2. I don’t crash shortly after the coffee is gone.
3. I have more energy.
4. No headaches.
So coffee may be fine for most people in moderation, but for me moderation seems to be one cup or less a day. And I love coffee but don’t miss it because I enjoy that one cup and then the benefits of not having more. Might be my quota is so tiny because I am 5 feet tall, but maybe not too. Regardless, thought I’d mention it for anyone who hadn’t considered side effects of too much coffee. ❤
God Bless Our Flag
~by J.D. Alexander
“God bless our noble flag
Wherever it may be.
Oh, may it stainless wave,
Thr emblem of the free!
And may thr brave and true
Protect it by their mifht,
Till all shall bend the knee
To justice, truth, and right!”
As I look around and see people much more on their tech devices than interacting, I have to wonder what the draw is to these tiny addictors? Does being on Facebook or Twitter make you a better person? Does it accomplish anything at all? Does it have eternal value? No, but today does. And it is here waiting for you. And it may be wasted on tech enterprises and become eternally damning because it wasted the value of today. Just a thought.
