Gadget fast

Can't get blogger to upload a picture tonight - Technology!!! So frustrating sometimes.
In the primary school this morning, I was pleasantly surprised at how much the children knew about Lent. And amazed at how many of them are giving up some of their technology for the season - Nintendo Wiis, DSs, XBoxs and the like. 
But what was even more surprising was the maturity with which they explained the purpose of their "giving up" - so that they could spend more time with friends and family.
Fasting for fasting's sake helps no one. But relationships can always benefit from some investment.
Maybe tomorrow I'll be able to add a photo - unless I have a computer fast!

That's really heartening to hear~and amazing that they are giving up some of their favourite things to spend more time with their relationships.

I have just been spending real quality time with one of my sisters this past couple of days~a real blessing~sometimes we take these relationships so much for granted that we forget to tend them~truly a time of giving rather than giving up for me.

Sorry about your picture~I hope normal service resumes tomorrow!
