Thoughts while I’m smack dab in the middle of figuring out my relationship with the internet…. enjoy. 🙂
* * *
In the middle of a crazy and mundane day, you’re there.
When my small world seems meager, you’re there.
Shimmering off the screen, you beckon me to take a sip.
Just a sip.
A sip of ten minutes to scroll the page and see what’s new.
But I know you.
And I know me.
It’s never just a sip.
A sip becomes a gulp becomes a drowning.
Drowning my attention, my creativity, my adoration.
Even when I’m not with you, you steal my heart away.
But I can’t let you steal anymore.
I have two little girls, four little eyes, locked on me.
Waiting for me, aching for me.
Let me drown in them.
When it’s all said and done, I won’t wish I had spent more time online.
I’ll wish I had spent more time on them.
And He is waiting, too.
Longing to fill the longing.
Longing to make my small world glorious.
