See You in a Few Weeks!
I'm here today to update you on my reading and media fast. It is going well if you don't count the three days I had to add on for reading on the internet! As of today my fast will be over on March 28th.
I have enjoyed reading only the Bible and have read it with more delight than ever. I am paying more attention to what I'm reading and seeing things I have never seen before in His word. Awesome!
I thought I would spend more time writing out of boredom but I haven't written beyond my personal journal and blog at all. I have been filling the time with garden work, housework, and just chilling. It is nice to feel I have a little extra time now that I'm not reading as much as usual.
I have read more aloud to my children. We are enjoying The Bronze Bow and have been reading it twice a day for 15-20 minutes at a time. I read The Bronze Bow to my older two sons about 10 years ago and was surprised to find that I didn't remember much of the story. It is fun to revisit a book I enjoyed again.
I am starting to long for a book or two to read and have some magazines I would like to catch up on. I have not missed facebook at all! I have missed looking up health info but have wasted a lot less time. I seem to know the answers I need without having to look them up. I just research to confirm my own ideas of what I feel is right. I need to trust myself and the knowledge I have stored in my brain more.
See you in a few weeks! I have missed checking in with you on your blogs. I can't wait to read about how your family has been, what's up with your homeschool, and new baby announcements!
