Thank you Autumn!

Is that your real name? You don't have to tell me, of course, since keeping anonymity in places like this can be a good idea. But I love your name, nonetheless. I'm an October baby, so it resonates with me.

Yes, we gave up the TV for Lent. And I know that we won't be going back to the garbage shows once Lent is over, if we even take back the TV at all.

My kids are surviving. We let the little ones watch some "Veggie Tales" on Sunday, being a feast day. They enjoyed it, but then wanted to go outside. Thankfully, we've been enjoying some lovely mild weather here lately.

I feel the withdrawal every evening after they're in bed, but I've been catching up on reading. Still, it's "mindless" magazine reading, but at least it's not the TV. I'm looking forward to the finishing of our year-long remodeling job of our bathroom, which will have a 6 foot antique clawfoot tub for me to soak in - hurrah! The idea of reading in there each night is such a lovely thought - thanks for the idea!

I appreciate your encouragement about this. I know it's right, but it's still hard to imagine not having the TV at all for the rest of my life. I guess I need to take it one step at a time, & allow God to lead me in the way He wants me to go (gosh, that sounds profound! Didn't someone else once say that?).

Shalom, Dena
