Stop, Look, and Listen

With the rise of technology, life should have been simpler, but it's not. The more we have push-button gadgets to serve us well, the busier we become.

These days,  I always find myself beating deadlines and running behind schedules, and at the end of the day I would crash tired on my bed.
Me, and my dh on the other side.

I'm glad that last weekend, the whole family, along with our friends, decided to have a day at the park. We dropped our regular routine and went to do something new. We exercised for 2 hours, chatted and enjoyed our packed lunch. Then we had the rest of the time strolling and enjoying one another's company and the gift of nature.

Surely, our homeschoolers needed some down time, too. 

So I had my time to stop for a while, look around, and listen to my heart.

"Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit", says the Lord. 
Zechariah 4:6

That is a good motto, "stop look and listen"... Thanks for the lovely sharing, and those great thoughts.

Subtly but beautiful reflections!

"Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit", says the Lord.
Zechariah 4:6" Great verse!

Yes, technology can get to be a bit much sometimes. I think balance is the key in that area.

There were some lovely reflections. I'm glad that you were able to spend some time with your family.

Blessings to you.

Lovely photos! So glad you enjoyed this special day with your family. What a novel idea to have exercise equipment at a park; wish they did that here in the States!

I hate how this technology consumes much of our time. Just like you, I seldom go out and reflect. Thanks for sharing those beautiful green views.
