Unlike television, nature does not steal time; it amplifies it.- Richard Louv (Author of Last Child in the Woods)
The average American over the age of 2 spends more than 34 hours a week watching live television — plus another three to six hours watching taped programs. (according to Nielsen statistics).
Questions to ponder:
How many hours do you spend watching television? Does it run continuously in the background of your home?
How many hours do your kids watch television? Do they have a tv in their room?
Take advantage of this beautiful Spring weather and get outside or at the very least just make them go outside!
I have more to say about this subject so watch for another post – meanwhile I am headed outside to listen and watch the sun rising and will be looking for JOY in the momemts God lays out for us today!
