Just So You Know…


I amaze myself self sometimes…

My stupidity… Or accidental nincompoopery…

I am still learning to publish blog posts on my phone.  My propensity to push the wrong key and button…well..it is great. 

Premature publishing… 

I then make  a mad rush to delete the posts from social media  and edit the post on line. 

Bear with me while I continue to perfect this hobby called blogging… It can be most unforgiving at times. 

Looking for grace and mercy…and some common sense would be a blessing as well. 

Social Media Over Load 

  
My grand plan for my MLK holiday from school has been liberating…which  is somewhat apropos for this particular holiday day. 

The morning has given me the opportunity to declutter my online life…

And by decluttering I mean removing apps from my devices and unsubscribing to a variety of newsletters and shopping emails I am bombarded by daily. 

I am social media-weary… It can be such a great thing, but it can be a time-straw,  sucking up ridiculous amounts of my time and emotional energy. 

My word for 2016 is JOY, and I have found over the last three weeks so much of this social clutter robs me of my JOY. With the political season in full swing, everybody has an opinion and an agenda, and social media is up to its smelly armpits in what will be a political slugfest this year. I predict… it will not be pretty…

I. am. done. 

I have also realized that I write less for My Philippians 4:8 Life because of my posts on Facebook. 

More writing…

More reading…

Less whining…

I am going to reduce the size of my online life…sharing less on social media and more on My Philippians 4:8 Life. Greater focus and less fluff… Not that fluff is bad at times…

How about you? How is social media treating you? 

No DSL?! Heaven Help Me…

So. . . I am in a love/hate relationship with technology today…

Love DSL when it works. . .

Hate the stupid thing when it doesn’t. . .

Love the patient 1-800-Help-Guy with the stuffy  nose and raspy, congested  cough who worked with me over the phone  for 85 MINUTES (Insert screaming and gnashing of teeth here.).

Hate that I wasted 85 MINUTES of my life  to fix something that has become a necessary evil for my household. Those minutes are gone. Lost to me…Remaining on the phone for that length of time was torture …Oh Sweet Mercy!

As I waited, I kept telling myself that “patience is a virtue.”

Walk in love, girl!

Show the love of Jesus.

In the end, no lives were lost and the apocalypse was averted narrowly. . . narrowly. . .I say.

The world is safe.

Berta has working internet. Thank you very much!

She has left the building. . .with her laptop.
