Three MOOs

My Opinion Only: In about 2008 I signed up for Facebook to keep track of my kids. It didn't take long for it to become more of a social place for me, a happy place. I realize that some people use it for marketing, including myself, and a place to rant, draw attention to issues, and keep people abreast of life's happenings. Some people use Facebook as a vehicle to encourage and bless others.

My MOO #1is this: I just really hate to see Facebook posts that tear people down. It is such a cowardly thing to do. Why bring the whole world into your problem with a single person? Why humiliate someone publicly when you won't say it to their face? I don't care if the status is true. I tend to hide people who do this. I don't want to see it, don't want to know about it, and tend to have sympathy for the one being railed against.

MOO 2: Cryptic posts really get on my nerves. "I'm done." Really? You have 500+ Facebook friends and you think everyone knows what you're talking about? Are you just trying to get attention? Nope. Not gonna private message you and ask you what you mean. Yep. I'm done too. Too many posts like that and I'm gonna hide you.

MOO 3: I get irritated when people rail against Facebook. Sure, the changes can be annoying. I've even been 'blocked' from adding friends for 24 hours because  apparently I added a family member but Facebook said I was adding people I didn't know. So what. I haven't paid ONE RED CENT for the use of Facebook, so I'm not about to complain when minor irritations hang up my usage of it. If we ever have to pay for it, then rail away.

Just MOO. What do you think about hateful, cryptic Facebook posts?

The Word of the Lion

"The Word of the Lion
Hide in your heart..."

Scripture memory has always been very important to me. God's Word is "living and active" (Heb. 4:12). It is our sword (Eph. 6: 13-17), and helps us renew our minds (Rom. 12:1-2). 

Since I believe that what I think directs the course of my life, having a mind filled with His Word keeps me on the right track. Hiding it in my heart, memorizing it, keeps the Father close to me in all situations. 

Of late, my preferred method is Scripture Typer, a great online site to practice, memorize and keep track of verses.
