Half of break is over and I’m really not even sure how that’s possible. We spend thanksgiving in New York with relatives and we just arrived about 2 or 3 hours ago. They live back in the woods where there isn’t much wifi but there’s so much to see, especially now that everything is covered in snow. I’m not sure why it popped into my head, but the thought of an old youth group lesson I was taught came into my head when my social medias weren’t loading. Disconnect to reconnect. Unplug your phone and appreciate the time you have to spend with others, there’s plenty of free time to be on my phone later.
Recently, at a youth group, they talked about “unplugging” and “reconnecting”. We talked all about how getting of our phones, iPads, iPods, nooks, kindles, tablets, etc. and spending more time with the people around us and doing other things. I encourage everyone to do at least one thing this week that requires you to turn all those things off and put them somewhere, then go do something fun with a friend or family member. It doesn’t matter if it’s going out on a shopping day or if you just hang around and talk for a while- just do it!
