Pausing Over a TeaCup


In today's world of smart phones, personal tablets for quick information and entertainment as well as laptops as small as book for staying connected; there's still a big loss of tranquility.

I've finally have all three of these wireless devices. They may be smart; however, the operator is not so smart.

Learning to think like the programers of these mind and behavioral controlling instruments has often sent me to pause over a teacup and sip sweet tea as I read Psalms for peace and tranquility. Serenity is restored when I unplug with the devises, pause in scripture and ponder the sweetness of staying plugged into the Savior. His promises refreshes.


The LORD gives strength to His people; the LORD blesses His people with peace. 
Psalm 29:11 (NIV)

Let's be smarter in today's world by unplugging more often to steep in scripture and sip sweet tea.

Uplifting blessings, 
Carolyn

  4. So true, Carolyn! We've started turning the phone and TV off on most nights while we read or work on a puzzle together. Refreshment at its best! Blessings...

  5. Your wisdom is showing with these actions. More married couples will find greater communication when interacting face to face. Helmut and I have a date at 4 pm most afternoons. Some times we play games while other times we talk about our discoveries or options from the day. Like you, technology is turned off or at best put on vibrate for keeping serenity in our relationship.

    Shine on!

  6. Carolyn,
    I love your phrase, "Steeping in peace while reading scripture". I also have unplugged from all those devices that clamor for my attention. A good nights sleep and a heart at rest during the day rewards and keeps me centered in the Savior. Oh taste and see the Lord is good! Thank you for sharing His sweetness. Bless on!!
