Taking A Break

Yesterday I decided to take a break from Facebook. I feel like lately it's been influencing me just a little too much. Also it's having a negative affect on a friendship and possibly my mental health :)

Since yesterday was Ash Wednesday, I figured I'd use the season of Lent as my time away. So when Richard returned home from work yesterday he changed my password and his. I know, I know. It's kind of sad that I can't trust myself not to cheat over the next 40 days, but I know myself and my lack of self control. And I'm better for being able to recognize that, right??

I'd like to use this time away to find a better way to spend my free time. Last night I mentioned something to Richard about doing daily devotionals and focusing more on my walk with God. This morning I decided to look up some devotionals and the first one I came across for today could not have been more perfect.

"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye." (Psalm 32:8)

I'm guessing my break from facebook will also bring me here more. I've been lacking in posts lately, but since this is now my main connection to friends and family out of state, expect more.

Ha! I'd have to have Bob do the same thing with my password and then I'd probably beg him to tell it to me.
That's sad.
