This long winter is finally over!¬†Need some inspiration to go soak up the wonderful world around us, and a laugh? Check out this video starring¬†Sesame Street‘s Bert with actor Zachary Levi.

God has given us a world to explore and people to explore it with. Let’s be present in the moment without letting our #selfie moments take precedent over our chances to really connect with those around us. (And I’m as guilty as anyone…)

In case you missed some of the jokes and glorious puns (who doesn’t love a good pun??), here are the lyrics (from mashable.com):

Every day I sit right there
Sit and stare and check my Facebook, email, Instagram
Chatting with my friends and making plans.
But on days with lots of sun
I say goodbye to everyone online
And say hello, cuz I know there’s a place where all the

Bees are always buzzing ’bout the flowers they have seen.
And every tree is trending,
I don’t miss my little screen, because

The sky won’t need a filter
And the birds tweet just to say:
You should really take a walk on this lovely
sunny day.

In the park I reconnect
Take some time to self-reflect
Yo, this Snapchat is going to be cray!
No hashtag selfie, put that thing away.

The pigeons make it feel like home
Follow me and we can can roam
Across the grass and see
That now we’re running faster than 4G!

On the playground there’s a million games to play.
We don’t need a fancy tablet with a
retina display.

Because…

The Bees are always buzzing ’bout the flowers they have seen.
And every tree is trending,
I don’t miss my little screen, because
The sky won’t need a filter
And the birds tweet just to say:
You should really take a walk on this lovely
sunny day.

Just look up and there will be
Bright blue skies, don’t need a
Weather app to tell you that.
Subscription to this cloud is free.

Bees are always buzzing ’bout the flowers they have seen.
And every tree is trending,
I don’t miss my little screen, because
The sky won’t need a filter
And the birds tweet just to say:

You should really take a walk on this lovely
sunny day.

And – while we’re on the subject – what better day to go outside and play than Sunday, June 8 at our Annual Old Fashioned Church Picnic?? Hope to see you there!
