It's THAT time.
It's time for Lent
and all the sacrifice that we attempt with it.
The purpose of this predominantly Catholic tradition,
as I understand from my escapades in CCD and collegiate Christian ministry,
is to sacrifice something in your life
because Christ sacrificed something in his... his life....
or us to know him and his father,
even thought it meant complete separation from God and life itself.
So, with that, I decided to do something that I have done before:
give up Facebook.
but I am limiting myself to one hour a day.
For some people, that's more than they go on FB in one week
...or even one month.
Well, FB users who only go on once a year
should probably just get rid of it altogether.
Anyways, I did this once before.
It went perfectly fine.
The catch was,
that I was in college.
I had things to do ALL the time,
friends within an arms reach (literally),
and I still had to graduate; therefore, I had to study.
I need to find things TO do
I need to make new friends and keep up with old ones
Oh, there are PLENTY of things I need to learn!
And Facebook is even more distracting and,
mind-dulling/numbing/deadening that it ever has been.
Blah. And I'm a TOTAL consumer of it.
Constantly signed in,
whether or not I'm looking at the screen.
And it needs to change.
Pretty sure God's been telling me to get of FB for a while, anyway.
So, Goodbye for now, Facebook. Well, for 23 hours a day.
It's be a challenge on day one.
But I made it,
and I'm DETERMINED to keep it going!
My husband had better be prepared.
There will be many a game nights in his future...
update: I added a lil' html to this post. There's basic html info on the Notes app on Facebook. I did have to look up that html on FB tonight when a "detailed" website failed in their information. My entire blog was "struck through"!
