I still have commitments right now and I am one of those people who follows through with what they say they will do. I find that to be a great trait until I'm at this point where I was wishing I could just quit!
This week coming back from Spring break has been super busy. I've not been home much and my house is a mess. The new has worn off and it is time to clean this pretty new house. Boo.
I told y'all how I had not looked at Facebook for a few days last week. I had actually de-activated my account and really did not want to re-activate it. I ended up re-activating it and I do like seeing updates from a few people there, but for the most part I just don't care anymore. I have noticed since re-activating it, I only go on there maybe twice a day. I cannot tell you how refreshing that is to me.
I sometimes feel like all the stuff I see and ingest from online "clogs" up my head. I don't know if you have any idea what I mean or not, but that is the only way I know how to explain it.
I love blogging and Twitter and Instagram, but sometimes, it is just too much. Too many opinions and too much negativity. I really do try to weed the negativity out, but it's hard to get it all.
A friend of mine posted a link to this post on Twitter yesterday. I was torn from wanting to give her a standing ovation to running in the corner and crying from being guilty. Seriously, ALL of us have posted a photo to Facebook or Instagram and secretly hoped that we get "likes" on it. When you really stop and think about it, how silly does that seem?
Or maybe you have never done that, I don't know. I know I have.
Today is Good Friday. I wrote this post about Good Friday last year. When I really sit and reflect on what Jesus did for us, I almost cannot take it. Every year, I make myself dig deep and really think about what He did. It's really hard for me to go to a place to experience such emotions.
What really gets to me the most is that He did not just die for me and for you. He also died for murderers and rapists, He died for Adolf Hitler and Jeffery Dahmer, and He died for all the other evil people that have walked this earth. He died for them. He died for me. He loves each and everyone of us so much. We are all sinners. Even though we see certain people as more sinful than others, the truth is that we are ALL sinners.
"But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us." Romans 5:8
