Letting go.................

That has been the cry of my heart since the beginning of the year. Lord help me to let go of ALL things that don't matter. Things that don't bring you glory and honor. Little did I know back in January what it meant. But I knew there would be changes. And wow the changes have been huge. From relationships, groups and personal matters. These past few weeks have been a little difficult, but oh so Good. I had to let go of baggage that was weighing me down. There are relationships that will never be what you think they can be. And I am so ok with that. Reminds me of the relationships that have Always and will Always be there. I used to think you had to have a lot of friends and people around at all times. I have realized that for me that was just another thing to keep up with and something to hide behind. I'm DONE with all the games. I have a few realy good, true friendships that I appreciatte. Are they perfect? Well, that's easy........NO! But they are a blessing to me. I feel so free, good and HAPPY! One of the things that was HUGE was....................................................................................................................................................................................giving up Facebook. I know some of you are like. So what! But for this socially charged girl it has been so Hard. But something that I have been dealing with for a long, long time. You see I didn't spend hours a day on there. Nor did I update my status 15 times a day. Or put links to 12 different great words of God or song. Or comment on every friend's status. Or check into every place I went or thought of going........Now those people have issues....JK :) But what I did do was much much worse. You see what I did was when I did get on for 5 a few times in the day . I ZONED OUT. I made my family feel as though they were not important for those few minutes. Now yes it was short amounts of time. But guess what? I don't care that much about what my friends are doing saying posting singing,whatever. I care about my kids, husband, family and friends:) And to think that I have given so many minutes to a cyber page to "keep up with people". Well it makes my stomach hurt. I don't have that much time left with my kids. I remember them being babies and now Colin is 13. When did that happen? Well it is happeneing every day. And I refuse to waste any more time on things that don't matter.

Love,
Vicki

That's awesome, Vicki! I quit FB too for similar reasons. I hated how it sucked me in every time.
Now if I can just quit all the other internet time-wasters, drat it all!
