Ironically, you may be reading this post because you clicked on a link in your Facebook feed. When I publish a post on my blog, it automatically links to FB. If you want to like or comment, please do so here on my blog because I’m not there—on Facebook.
After Christmas, I decided to remove the Facebook app from my all my devices. I had become totally addicted to clicking that little FB icon. I am so very glad I took the plunge and deleted it. I feel alive again and am doing things I hadn’t done in months—even years!
I have begun to read again. We are into the third week of January, and I have read two books—one 600 pages—and just bought one more to read this weekend.
I have been cooking more.
I am spending more time in the Word.
I am memorizing Scripture—at this moment Psalm 27.
I have more time to minister to others—not just think about doing it but actually DO it.
I am actually meeting friends face-to-face for coffee and lunch.
I have been making art.
I have been cleaning out closets—purging purging purging.
I went on a movie and dinner date with my husband. I can’t tell you the last time I did that! We went to see Joy last weekend. I had no idea what it was about when I went, but I liked it!
My days seem longer and more fulfilling. I feel more focused.
I am still having a hard time writing. I seem to think in bytes—my brain has been in information overload for so long—but hopefully, I will be able to recover the ability to meditate and take the time to give expression to what I hear.
Maybe someday I will be able to return to Facebook with restraint, but for now, I am going to prime the pump to get the fountain flowing again and quietly type out my life over here.
