Facebook, Blogging, or Twitter? OH MY!

Here I am~I'm back!...I feel so far out of the blogging loop and I MISS YOU!! Part of my absence was indeed the wedding prep...but admittedly another part is my love of Facebook...Fellow blogger Angie invited me probably a year ago...I sheepishly went on there thinking it was "kids" mostly, but then...............woah~!

I have reconnected with high school friends, a customer from my hair styling days (which was the big stuff of the 80's!!), my cousins and their kids that moved over 25 years ago away from kid's friends, my customers, and now our church is using it for announcements.

But I have also been convicted of the time I have spent on there. Some days too much. To the neglect of tasks I would rather not do, paying bills and cleaning the bathroom. So I have had to do some disciplining of myself...No facebook until...AND go a day without it here and there. HONESTLY, Facebook has replaced the evening news in my world! Much more intresting is news about people I know...unfortunately I didn't find out it was going to freeze the other night, so when I woke up and my flowers were dead from frost, I realized I might need to catch the evening news once again... :(

Needless to say, attentiveness to balance in life is a constant necessity.

Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. Psalm 90:12

Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding. Proverbs 4:17

I think I need to close the computer and go get me some wisdom in THE WORD. G'nite y'all!

You're right! It all can be so time consuming. I try and use it as a "reward", accomplishing what needs to be done first.

Fun to find you here, there and everywhere!

Have a great weekend my friend. Wish I lived closer and could visit your shop.

I'm so with you there! I haven't been blogging much either, just popping on facebook, and to often at that. Do love seeing you there though!

Hey friend, I hear ya... it can all be time consuming!

I am slowly recovering from the wedding.... my legs still ache from all the dancing!

It truly was a perfect day!

Thanks for the words you left at my blog. I hope to get back into the blogging loop....
