Pulling the plug

Yep. I did it. I pulled the plug on my Facebook account last night.  NO, I am not mad at anyone, trying to hide, or moving to Alaska.  I have so many amazing friends on Facebook that I have gotten to know remarkably well considering I hardly see them in real life.

It’s just time to take a break.  Someone asked me yesterday, “Is Facebook evil?”  when I mentioned that I was taking a break to focus on Jesus this Holy week.  My answer is absolutely not.  Some times it’s just good to step away from the noise and just be.

If you are a GCC attendee, try to make it to Good Friday service this Friday at noon. Our whole family will be there!

Until then–spiritually speaking, I’ll be up on this Rock. 

Hope you can tune out some of the noise, be still , and listen to what God is saying to you this Holy week.

Solitude

 

From the ends of the earth I call to you, I call as my heart grows faint; lead me to the rock that is higher than I. Psalm 61:2

    Awesome way to refocus. We all need this most of the time in many ways. Love that God calls to us! Love your heart to hear Him!

    Refocus is good…I think sometimes there is to much noise that gets in the way of hearing His voice!

    I completely understand your need to refocus on more important things – especially during Holy Week!!! The Facebook thing can get almost overwhelming at some point – I have found that myself – to where you very nearly tune out everything else in your life and don’t pay any attention to the things you love to do and the people you love the most in order to catch up on the latest information from your friends or keep up with your Facebook apps or games!!! Faith and family are far more important things to concentrate on!!!! Will miss you on Facebook – enjoy your time to just “be”. “Be still and know that I am God” To take time to just “be” is a practice everyone should follow!!

    I understand. I’m being selfish, but I miss you. You made me stop and think by ‘pulling the plug’. 🙂

    Just wanted to say I will really miss you there – but that I hope you have a super break and get to feel a bit restored and enjoy the passion of Holy week! It just feels weird that you’re now the third super/keepin-it-real/awesome-mom/positive/encourager Facebook friend who has pulled the plug in the past month or two. The reason they bailed was due to a small number of unrelenting mean folks constantly tearing them down. I just can’t wrap my mind around that. It’s so rare in the news feed to have peeps that so consistently bring a smile to your face, who you look forward to keeping up with. And those very people get driven away… gah. Tnx for your twitter dm – I just couldn’t pack all the above in a 140 char reply 🙂

    Totally unrelated, but plz pray for me – I’m having about the worst week I’ve had in the past 20 yrs. Some bad news and awkward stuff going on, and the nagging core question behind it: ‘I know we one day win the war, but why does evil win so many battles?’

    But this week reminds us… He is Risen!!!
