It is 5 Minute Friday and I am hanging out with LisaJo and the circle of bloggers who take 5 minutes of their blogging day to write. To find out more about it go here.

Five Minute Friday

This week’s Five Minute Friday prompt: focus


Depth of field:

…when a subject is more focus than its surroundings.


I’ll admit it.  I have lost focus.  I have focused in on one thing (and very badly too) to the detriment of things around me.  I have allowed myself to get caught up in the online realm, instead of real life-mine. It is so easy to get wrapped up in what others think is cool.  I keep looking like a peeping tom at all the neat things I see people post.  I enjoy keeping up with what my friends post on facebook.

It grabs my attention so that the important things go out of focus.  I claim I don’t have time, however, if I turned off the TV, logged of facebook and pinterest, I would have time.  Time to really focus my life- that focus which should be on God and becoming more like Jesus Christ.

The boys could use more of my focus- taking the time to dig into books, play with toys and do art.

I think that really soon here, I will be taking a on-line fast of the time and focus suckers in my life.  It will really help me focus on other things, I have let slide.  That time digging deeper into the Word, I can get up earlier and spend 30 minutes studying and praying. Instead of dreaming of a clean house- I can close my laptop and actually clean it (wow-there is an idea)! The clothes that need to be folded and put away- I can teach Pete to help me fold and put them away.

Changing my focus to the blessings I have in front of me, will help me be a better wife, mom, daughter, sister, and friend.

    Oh, very good. Computers and daydreaming are huge time-suckers for me, too. Amazing what you can accomplish if you just buckle down and do it, huh? 🙂 Thanks for your thoughts!

    Oh, these words are so universally true! The things that steal our focus are ever-present. Thanks for sharing!
