ruins lots of things, like conversation, games and music. Yes, I have one in my living room too. But, it sits in a closed cabinet and there is no cable hooked up - only a DVD player. How I long for a holiday of my dreams where live music joyfully greets us from the piano or fiddle or flute - hey I'm not too picky! And, where people are festively dressed and greet eachother with gladness. The wine pours freely. We eat, drink and are merry. The children run and dance and laugh. We enter God's goodness, because he is good. And, we keep the box OFF!
