Have you ever done something you know you shouldn’t do, but you did it anyway ?
Last night my husband enticed me to enter his T.V. watching room, (man cave), to watch a movie. He knows I don’t watch television, but he lured me in by saying that this was a funny movie. He knows how much I love to laugh !
And so I entered this dark room, with its zebra print carpet, and sat down on the leather couch to watch the funny movie, and I became fascinated with how clear the images on the ‘Smart’ T.V. were.
Initially, the movie provided a few chuckles, but then, as the film progressed, I reluctantly watched scenes of violence, gambling, alcohol consumption, racism, homophobia and lying. I am unsure why I didn’t get up and leave. Perhaps it was the comfortable couch.
This was no comedy ! However, it did remind me why I avoid television watching.
I have a plan, however. The next time my husband invites me to watch a ‘funny ‘ movie, I will politely decline.
Then I will make a delicious cup of Laura Secord hot chocolate, and retreat to my prayer and blogging room.
I will enjoy the tiny lights I have placed there, sip my delicious drink, and listen to the ocean waves.
Dear Father, lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
