Hellllloooooooooooooooo? Are you still on Facebook?

Somehow the days flew past and I didn’t realize that I haven’t been blogging.

I’m going to blame it on Facebook. Facebook has become my new social life. It has taken the place of nearly all of my emailing, a lot of my reading time, and unfortunately, I’ll be really honest here: prayer time as well.

Facebook has kept me from putting away laundry and from chatting with family members. It has lured me into taking longer lunch breaks at work, thus diminishing my paycheck as an extra quarter hour zips past as I chat with someone in MI who just came online.

On the other hand, through Facebook, I have had some really deep conversations with people in MI and AR and even in  Nigeria. I’ve settled a problem with offspring who were better able to express emotions this way than face to face. I’ve been encouraged by the daily postings of a pastor in MI and a friend in the UK and a number of other Christian friends who quoted Bible verses that really encouraged me. I’m organizing a high school reunion in June by posting on the school’s page and asking my few contacts to tell their contacts to tell their contacts who will tell their contacts. I am discussing old times with dear old friends (there must be a better adjective than “old” here….) which has assisted me in better understanding myself.

So, all things in balance. I should probably put away some laundry but come to think of it, I’ve been praying for many of these people as I’ve been on Facebook.
