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.
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.
