I wrote an article for our church newsletter.
Before it was printed, I pulled it.
Because "Yours turly" here was
having Facebook issues herself.
Friends hurt friends.
Family hurts family.
We say things and see things
that may or may not be there.
It's a sensitive matter,
Don't we do it?
We compare our likes, comments and followers to other people?
Just like we do in real life but FACE IT,
FACEBOOK is not always real life.
We know how to paint a beautiful picture.
I do it too.
Nice family, nice "friends" (and lots of them) nice children, nice car,
nice home and to the world, everything looks ,,,NICE.
I can even do it here, the safest social media I have, Blogger.
I realized awhile back that no one wanted to read
the sad, sob stories of "Debbie Downer," so
I added a blog "The Upside of Down,"
thinking "I can help someone else."
and my few faithful friends followed.
But do most of us really want to hear it???
Or someone took out the trash.
Thank you...very much..."friend."
Facebook has been hard for me since we moved.
I see all my friends and family enjoying each other.
Fun! Fun! High Fives! Yippee! Woo Hoo!
And I want that, I really do!
But I'm sad, too.
"Wow, look how everyone is moving forward."
The problem has moved and so we move on!
She's gone, let's party!
Sounds really stupid, huh?
But don't we do that?
There's a verse that God often uses to get my attention here,
"Each one should test his own actions.
Then he can take pride in himself,
without comparing himself to someone else."
So before we post, speak, or vent,
we should test our own actions,
make sure our motives are pure and not offensive...
and then test again.
(Hey I'm not even sure I should post this..)
Who's leaving Facebook?
Did I say I was leaving Facebook?
How many times have you left Facebook?
Nah, just kidding.
