Being Present Under False Pretenses

Just to be entirely honest, I recently became privy to a flaw within my being. I noticed that when I do not get adequate alone time to parse my thoughts and pray, I turn into a secret escape artist. I am present for my family but very much elsewhere simultaneously in thought and spirit. I have often been present under false pretenses. So I am aware of it now and confess and repent, determining (and off to a good start) to be better, be present. I used to be so good at that and I am getting it back. So, my strategy is to tell my family that I need some time so I walk the dog alone in the morning and pray and then I am available and actually fully present for them the rest of the day. And it is working. Cherish and be there for your family and you will notice a difference in their behavior. God is good!😄❤
