The Blessing of Being Disconnected

We finally have internet service at our house. After a month of being disconnected it is good to have back, especially since I manage the church website and we both rely on email for work and personal communication. Michelle and I both enjoyed spending the time reading, although I'm ashamed to admit that she redeemed the time better than me.

In a single month she has read Girl Talk and Feminine Appeal by Carolyn Mahaney et al, Passion & Purity by Elizabeth Elliott, and has just started Lies Women Believe by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and Quest for Love by Elizabeth Elliott. She is also memorizing the entire book of James... talk about being an overachiever!!! I've started reading Holiness by J.C. Ryle, Brothers, We Are Not Professionals by John Piper, and re-reading The Cross of Christ by John Stott (among several others that I have been reading off and on).

We have all become so reliant on the internet but our experience shows it may not be a bad idea to take a sabbatical from it every once and a while. Although ours wasn't planned, we did find the time to be very rewarding.


In Our New House

We finally got moved and are getting settled slowly but surely. We've been without internet service so have been relying on access at outside locations. I intend to begin posting again regularly once internet service is established.
