If you’re like me, from time to time you get one of those colds that make you feel like you should have purchased stock in Puffs or Kleenex before it started. One tissue leads to the next, and you become king or queen of the multi-pack tissue purchase.
The Internet can be like that cold and those tissues. We log on in the morning, check emails, check Facebook and other social media sites we may be on, wait five minutes, and repeat. Sometimes I find myself parked on Facebook waiting for something to pop as I go about my other business. Guess what? There’s hardly ever anything more exiting than watching grass grow that pops on my screen. Plenty of cute puppies and kittens that look very much like all of the other cute puppies and kittens do come up with great frequency, and I am not knocking puppies or kittens, but there is only so much cuteness a person actually needs in their day.
Starting next week, I am going on an Internet fast of sorts. I will allow myself thirty minutes in the morning to be on line and do any non-ministry or non-writing related browsing and then it’s off the social media feed. I’ll let you know how it goes.
