There has been a recent push in my life to rejoin Facebook, to “reconnect” with those I am no longer connected to, to stay up on what is going on.
“Grant, there is this hilarious video you HAVE to see. Are you on Facebook?”
Wow…no, I’m not. I’m sorry I missed that.
“You have to see this. It’s so cute/awesome/life-changing/irritating/provocative.”
It’s astonishing that I’ve survived this long without seeing it, isn’t it?
“It’s incredible. Everyone will be talking about it.”
I’m sure they will.
“Grant – you gotta see it.”
Is this about cats? Because let’s face it, anything about cats is a waste of time.
“How do you stay up with your family without Facebook? Don’t you want to stay connected with your family?”
Is this a trick question? Did my mom put you up to this?
“Don’t you want your voice be heard?”
I preach almost every Sunday. I tweet. I write on my blog. Honestly, I get tired of hearing my own voice. I’m trying to create space and silence to hear His voice.
“You are SO missing out.”
Funny. I don’t see it that way.
Way back in 2011, I said good-bye. I really haven’t changed my mind. If anything, I’m more resolute than ever. It’s made my life much easier in many cases.
It’s also giving me more time to waste on my fantasy football team.
