the facebook fast
i can't take it back, it's already out there...
so, i stumbled upon and read this very reflective post about Lent... and this quote kinda stuck:
"...Lent isn't only about giving up things. It's also about adding things, God things..."
then this quote is followed by a short list of examples including - "Having given up on Facebook, to whom will you devote meaningful conversation?"
which really got me thinking about the people i care about and the ways in which i choose to communicate with them and why i always choose facebook... for years and years and years, i happily wrote letters and drew and doodled with glee on envelopes... and then, i stopped... maybe i got too busy and too lazy... and then, i discovered facebook....
so, i'm giving up facebook for lent and i'm going to (try to) write to someone every day.... maybe a blog post. maybe a post card. maybe a letter. maybe a note in a lunchbox. maybe a post-it at an ATM....
please wish me luck! (and please pray for me, if you pray...) no, really! i look forward to reading status updates and browsing photos from my friends and family who are so far away.... these next 40 days are going to be very challenging... :)
