hitting my personal pause button :: time for a tech break

May 28, 2011

It’s that time again.  Once in awhile it is healthy to take a break.  Because I’m an active technology user, I need to step away once in awhile to remind myself that I use technology with a purpose, or it will use me.

This weekend is the unofficial (but recognized) kick-off to summer, and our family is heading up North for a little vacation.  We have often taken JUNE off from television/technology in the last few years.  I’m going to follow that tradition this year, too.

Also, for those of you who know me best, you have seen how much of my life has been wrapped up in late nights and early mornings studying.  My family has not seen much of me these last nine months, and I haven’t seen enough of them, either.  I’ve got a few more assignments to wrap up before next Friday, and then I’m deeply looking forward to going on more dates, playing catch and reading with my kids, and basically being present with and for them.

I’m overdue for a tech Sabbath.  It seems like the time is right.  I’m not done blogging or tweeting or Facebooking altogether (unless the Lord so leads), but for now, I’m getting off the train.  Catch up with y’all later this summer!  God bless.

Psalm 24:7 & Luke 10:42 >> Like David, and Mary, I'm in pursuit of my one thing. I'm the Pastor at St. Olaf Lutheran Church in Montgomery, IL. Pastor, teacher, writer, communicator, designer, and drummer. I definitely got the better deal in my marriage to Amy. And I couldn't be any more proud of my five amazing boys. Deeply grateful.
