Disconnect to reconnect

h e a d, reflections

I do not love well when I’m addicted to technology. I ignore the dogs, my husband, my roomie. I lose track of time and slack on my chores. I’m perpetually distracted, and when I’m not distracted, I’m seeking distraction.

It’s a cycle.

Because we all want to be lazy sometimes. The problem is when that sometimes becomes all the time. Can you stop? Will you stop?

Will I take the time to refocus?

To play with the dog, snuggle my husband, take a bath, read a book…Can I become self-disciplined to love well? To grow and nurture myself and my relationships? To do more with these minutes than stare and scroll?

S T O P .

My mind and body beg, but distraction is easier.

Log off. Shut down.

Be uncomfortable.

Disconnect to reconnect.

Live for more.

We are Haley and James Earley, a family of two established on October 11, 2014 in our hometown of Rochester, MN and now living in St. Paul, MN. We are dog-lovers, coffee addicts, tree-huggers, balance-seekers, community-livers, and new foster parents. We live in a house of three adults, three dogs, and our sweet foster kiddos. We desire to slow down in this fast-paced world in order to pursue intentional community as we seek after the heart of God. We're just one couple trying to figure out this whole living life thing.
