At a church potluck on Sunday, I was challenged during conversation with another father not to give in to the lure of mindless entertainment. For much of my life, I’ve allowed “entertainment” to have some room to grow; it’s OK to indulge in entertainment as long as it doesn’t get out of hand. In college, I stopped playing video games because I saw what a waste of time they were. But I still indulge in an iPhone game every so often…

Last night we found a stray honeybee on out back porch, so my kids and I had a closer look. The bee seemed to be in trouble and was moving its hind legs up to brush its wings a bunch.
