Restore...Renew Week 4, Day 5: Unplug


We are so fortunate to be living in an age of  such convenience and technological wonders.  How easy it is to flip a switch and we have light or heat.  Almost every house in modern civilization has a cellular phone and computers.  We can connect to people all over the world.  We are so plugged in that it is easy to forget the real world out there.  Today's challenge is to take the time and get real.  Unplug from the world of technology for today.  No cellphones.  Do you want to talk to somebody, go visit them, look them in the eye and connect face to face. Switch off the TV.  Instead play a board game with your family or talk to them about their week, their friends, or the affairs of the world.  Unplug your computer and close your laptop, go outside and breathe in the evening air or walk in the rain.  Instead of using the stove, make a fresh salad and have a barbecue.  Enjoy a day disconnected from wires, free as a bird.
