There are times when Maxine has wisdom beyond her years.  Good heavens, did I really say that?  I must be about the same age so I guess I’m allowed to express my opinion occasionally.  Lately I’ve found myself sitting down after a long day to enjoy something on the tube, only to realize there isn’t anything worth the time and effort to stay awake.  That, coupled with the fact that I’m losing my hearing, leads to an early bedtime or often sawing a cord of wood while curled up on the couch.

We pay an exorbitant amount of money for a large list of channels, and  we can’t find one that has anything to offer.  It’s gotten worse as we’re exposed to all this political garbage every day.  The news channels are filled with rhetoric, slander, judging legal cases before they come to trial and inciting racism, fear and general disgust with humanity.

Our community of law enforcement has been placed under ridicule, blame, and hatred.  Our teachers are being bullied and physically assaulted.  Our political leaders sit quietly in congress while the people struggle to maintain jobs so they can simply survive.  There are times when I think this world is totally upside down. Those we once looked up to are now seen as the enemy.  Those we respected are revealing dark sides.  All of this is sent to us at a fierce rate of speed through the world wide web and decisions are being made based on the sensational.

So, we sit back in the comfort of our homes and absorb by osmosis tons of garbage each day without even realizing what it’s doing to us.  Our everyday living is cluttered with a form of brainwashing that’s solidifying within our brains.

Today, don’t turn on the TV.  Don’t listen to talk radio.  Avoid reading news updates on the internet or social media.  Spend that time reading your Bible, studying it, inwardly digesting it, scouring it for answers.  Listen for the quiet.  I’m certain you’ll find peace and have a better day.

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    I also agree! Quite ironically, however, people’s addiction to TV pays my way in the world!

      Oh, dear sweet Wally, I meant no offense. Unfortunately we all have to make a buck, right. I’m certain there are many in the industry that are good and kind like you.

  2. The amount of nonsense of TV can be appalling. The bad news and negativity is enough to give one heartburn. It’s good to cut it out and have peace as much as possible.
