Taking a Break

I am going to be taking a break from blogging and most computer activity, indefinitely. God has blessed me with 6 wonderful children and I believe that my time spent on the computer is negatively affecting the amount of time that I spend with my children. What messages am I giving my children when I spend a lot of time on the computer? Why do I spend so much time working on websites and my blogs when I should be attending to my children, cleaning my house, or working in our garden? My mom was a wonderful mother and friend. I want to be more like her.

I once heard Fr. Corapi say that St. Teresa of Avila said that a little black box would ruin the family. Fr. Corapi mentioned that the black box was probably the television; I believe that it may be the computer. My family is not experiencing problems and I don't want it to do so.

Please say a Hail Mary for me. May God bless the families of those who read this post!


  1. Consider your Hail Mary said.

    I believe it was St. Elizabeth Ann Seton who forsaw the Black Box. And I'll bet it was anything techno and engrossing (computer, tv, ipod, blackberry, playstation, etc.)

    I stopped blogging myself. I gave it up for Lent and am staying away indefinitely, though of course I still read them!

    God Bless You!

  2. Praying for you, Christine. And I totally understand. I'm there myself.

    God bless you, Christine. Hail Mary...

  4. We will be missing you, Christine!

  5. OMgosh I feel this way too (except I only have 3 kids!)! I keep saying to myself "this is the last time I'm checking my blog or any blogs today"...I'm totally, completely, addicted.

    I'll slow down tomorrow...

  6. Mary Ann, thank you for the correction.
    I will keep everyone in my prayers. Yes, I am still trying to take a break. I know that I am not succeeding.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I hope that you have a wonderful day! God bless you!
