Admittedly, Facebook and I have a love-hate relationship. Many times over the past few months, I've nearly deleted my account. However, I stopped myself because: 1.) Ethan's Memorial page is on there and I have to keep my account active to keep his page active. 2.) Being military, my friends are scattered everyone, and FB makes it easy to stay in touch (though it's my least preferred method of doing so).
Today I decided to take a break from it. My brain is overloaded and I cannot take being over-stimulated by all of the postings from complaining to prayer requests (which I genuinely don't mind) to this giveaway on this blog, to this and that....BLAH!!!
It's no wonder people are having issues with anxiety, depression, sleeping issues, etc. We are over-stimulated, and take not nearly enough time to rest and listen to His voice calling us back on to the path He has set for us. I cannot follow Him and follow 300 plus people on Facebook. It's simply not possible. Will I delete my account? Probably not. But will have to be intentional and self-controlled if I'm going to make my goal of being NOT depending on Facebook so much.
Will you pray for me? Ashamedly, this is a hard habit to break. I want to hear from my Father. I need peace and quiet.
If you really like what I've done with these, please let me know. I want honest feedback, please! And with Christmas around the corner, these could make great gifts.
Other projects I have lined up are about 101 baby gifts (I am so dragging my feet on this one), a quilt for my nephew's birthday, something for my mom and sister's birthday, and a quilt for Evan's birthday. Plus, I want to make myself some Fall placemats and fun stuff. Oh!!! And I have one birthday gift to sew for a special friend who has a birthday at the end of this month. Well, I think I'd better run and get something done.
