Day 7 of Media Detox: Tuning In

It’s 12:18am, and I am writing a quick note before bed. Ed and I have been chatting all night, detracting from our usual Saturday night ritual of tuning into a movie together. I love tuning into each other and chatting over ridiculously funny things and deeply meaningful stuff as well. I could seriously chat with Ed for hours and of course over a good glass of wine, time just seems to fly by.

The kids were treated to the story of the French Revolution, World War 1 and 2 earlier on and  it was so cool to see how they hung on their father’s every word as he drew vivid pictures in the minds highlighting moments of courage and lessons from the past.

I am truly thankful to the Lord for His goodness and His grace over our lives and for moments like tonight where we can unplug from so much noise and tune in to each other.

It’s fun to sit side by side next to someone and share an experience together but nothing will beat looking into hearts and eyes and letting the sound of each other’s words fall like precious stones upon your heart.

    Such a beautiful post. I can just picture you guys over there listening to Ed’s vivid stories. Few people can tell a story from history like he can!

    Seeing this kind of fruit coming from your sacrifices makes all the “boring days” worth it! Love you guys.
