Present But Absent

A person who strays from home is like a bird that strays from its nest.

~ Proverbs 27:8 [NLT]

Do you know what is more dangerous than being absent from home? It is being at home but mentally checking out. It’s alarming because it ruins families slowly over time but quickly in the end. Our presence becomes like a decoy. From the outside, everything looks good but the love, mind and spirit is gone. If this is you, find ways to change this direction. Try inserting some couch time to talk and listen to one another. You can start by just asking what their highs and lows were for the day.
