This new world called "Online Social Network" is still a novelty for some if not most of us over 50. We join social network sites that we feel we can relate to, and go to great pains to set up our profile page so that it reflects who we are.
I don't know about you all, but for me, I was really nervous at first, about clicking on other people profile pictures and requesting their friendship. I really didn't know what to expect. So here it is a year later, and I have memberships on numerous SN sites and even started on of my own, "Word4UTVNetwork."
I am clear that my sole purpose of being online is to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and to fellowship with others in this most fascinating new way. I interact with so many people during the day with so many different personalities, that when Pastor Ken gets home, I'm exhausted. I find that when I leave the house for meetings or just visiting my friends, two things are always with me; 1. my pocketbook, and 2. my laptop, yes even when I attend Church on Sundays, the laptop is in the trunk of the car. I can't help it.
One day I discovered the community that has over 5 million members, and the Holy Spirit told me to join the community. I found myself saying out loud, " you've got to be kidding, right Lord?" Nope, the Holy Spirit said join and that's what I did. Wanna talk about sin! Anyways, I started a discussion that said, "There's a Pastor In the House" introduce myself and left it at that.
Not to long after that I started getting requests to be added as a friend. OK. I also attracted the online bow-wows, men who are looking for women to get over on... but that comes with the territory. Now here is the reason for this blog. I receive this friend request from a young lady, so I clicked on her photo and saw that she was only wearing a teddie, not to mention that she looked like she weighed at least 250lbs or better.
So she is asking for my friendship, me, Pastor and she, is wearing nothing but a teddie, with all her stuffing hanging out. You all know what this means, don't you? If I accept her, she will be on my page next to some of you who are already on my friend list.
So, I've gone fishing, caught some fish, now what do I do? What would you do if you were me? Share your thoughts, I'd love to hear them.
