Do you remember the days when entertainment centered around people?
You invited people to your home, fellow-shipping and singing around the piano In the days
before my time, before radio and TV, we entertained ourselves. I love
to read books by authors Jane Austen
and Maud Montgomery and glimpse into times
past when an evening of entertainment consisted of a skit, or a play or
someone filling an evening by playing the piano or singing an aria. Since the days of
electronics, we have even lost the art of correspondence of letter
We now correspond instantly around the world, where it used to take weeks, sometimes months to hear from people in other states and countries. Now we text the person sitting across from us at the dinner table.
We have forgotten how to entertain ourselves. Perfection has
wedged its way into our thinking.
It's a lost gift. During the
days ahead, when family and friends gather around to celebrate the
upcoming Christmas season, I hope the spark of fellowship and enjoyment will help us to remember how to entertain ourselves and relish time with others.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands ~ Psalm 19:1
