“Stillness of soul is increasingly rare in this world addicted to speed and noise.” –Sarah Young

Oh, just editing these pictures makes me miss our time with our kids last week near Bend, Oregon.

The weather was so amazing, we sat out every day and enjoyed the sun, rode bikes, went on hikes (looking for the perfect fly-fishing area for the next time we’re back).

Taking time to get away and still the soul is good for all. Not just for me and Paul, but for the sibs–an important bonding time.

It takes effort, planning, purpose, and a determination to put away social media for chunks of quality time together, in such a techie-world. And believe we, we are not perfect at this. But we try.

The fruit and blessings that come from getting away from speed and noise …it’s hard to even pen.

When’s the last time you purposely set aside social media for quality family time?
