Hodgepodge Facebook Returns
Having small children has helped me to mellow in this area. Initially, how they made beds and set tables sort of irritated me...but now, I see it as their "best" and I'm happy with it. When I tell them how happy it makes me...it increases my happiness!
2. Do you think a 6th sense exists? Explain.
I think women can have a kind of intuition about situations and people. I've had "a gut feeling" about something that's proven best to follow. Maybe that's the Holy Spirit guiding and protecting me...
3. Do you say your goodbyes slowly, quickly, or not at all?
The quicker the better...no crying!!
4. On a scale of 1-10, with ten being hot hot hot, what level of spice do you like in your food? What's your favorite 'spicy' dish?
Loverbrains and I LOVE spicy food...Our favorite places are Yats (Cajun/Creole), Mark Pi's (Asian), and Thai Spice...I probably choose around a 6-7....Loverbrains normally chooses 8-10.
5. What is one of your all time favorite commercial jingles?
"Rice a roni, The San Francisco treat...*ding *ding!"
6. Plane, train, boat or auto...your preferred method of travel?
Plane...I love airports and air travel...I have never had a really bad flight...Well, there was one in Germany...small plane, fumes, turbulence...sort of scary...I block it out though!
7. What is something you take for granted?
Far too many things, I'm afraid. "
8. Insert your own random *rant alert* thought here.
After much thought (and grumbling), I decided to give Facebook another chance.
*gasp, I know, I know*
I created an entirely new (tricky) identity...and am being VERY selective in my friend selection. The whole un-friending thing gives me issues...as does the blending of friend/association groups...BUT...it seems that I will be essentially cut out of everyone's life, baby pictures, news and networks if I don't use this social media...so, because I love people and think their babies are cute...*sigh* I hope you're happy.
My blog is posting directly to it...that's sort of nice...in case I don't feel like checking it for a while.
I do continue to have some BIG issues with it...Here's a few biggies...
I think married Christians should be careful...getting in touch with "old flames" is just that...playing with FIRE...just don't do it!
I am NOT interested in a re-cap of "mean girls" from highschool or churches...DUH people!..everyone can read everything so don't talk about things you shouldn't. Gossip is still gossip whether you type it or say it. It still hurts!
I have friends from all walks of life...and I will hide some from general view (nice new feature by the way) cuz the groups offend each other. I find it very interesting that generally it's my "worldly" friends that are crushed by the less than sensitive christian comments. Don't burn other people's bridges to sharing the gospel with others. Oui! FYI--NO people group should be pushed off the face of the earth. Hate the SIN...not the sinner! Speak the truth in LOVE!
Thank you...I had to get that out! I feel better now. *phew*
