All of life has to be a balance between
• Work and play
• Rest and movement
• Alone and with friends
• Talking and listening
Today I can also add being connected through the internet, and being unconnected.
Several times each day, I check my email, SparkMail and my Facebook accounts. I love to write, and I love the responses that people give me to my blogs.
Still, every person needs to take time to step away-away from computer, their friends, the online drama. Lent is a great time to listen, remember and reflect on my life, on my friends and on the Word of God, the Bible.
Today I will be taking time to bring balance through quiet time in the Maine Woods. My husband and I will snow shoe in to a Maine Hut, and spend the night. There’s no tv, no internet and fewer distractions. This is what I need.
I know that I could do the same thing at home. I could unplug my phone, stay out of the office, let the housework wait, but it would not be the same. The change of environment really adds to the ability to disconnect from my life for a time.
How do you find balance in your life?
