I am still having trouble getting back into the routine of blogging on a consistent basis.
It is not that I do not have things to blog about. I have several going on in this head of mine.
I think the truth of the matter is that I have spent entirely too much time on Facebook.
Now, I am not saying that I am against it or that I plan to take a break from it. No, I really am so thankful for my FB connections. It has given me the opportunity to re-connect with long lost friends. It is a wonderful way to connect with those in our present day "world." ie - church family. It is such a good way to stay connected with our REAL (flesh and blood) family.
It is simply a way to know and be known. Does that make any sense?
While I might not have the time (or actually take the time) to write a letter. I may not even have/take the time to write an email. But when I sign on my Facebook page, I can quickly see an update on the people in my life. Then I have the opportunity to respond or not. It only takes a minute. The connection is made.
Today is a good example. I had just talked to my Jonathan by IM. My heart was aching. I posted about it on my status:
once again... time with my soldier this morning on IM... makes me happy and sad... I just hate it when he says "my time is up... I have to go"
I sit and stare at the screen... and pray...
And the support/connections began. Such sweet manna to this Mother's heart. Support. Love. Prayers. None of which took much time - from me or from my fb world. But it was real. And it blessed me more than can be expressed.
So, I have no intentions to give up my Facebook.
But... I may need to limit my time there.
