A few minutes after I joined up. I received three postings on my "wall."
- my daughter, Eleah, said..."You know Dad will find out eventually."
- my daughter, Jenna said... "Mom, you are going to get addicted to Facebook...and when do you have time for this?
- my computer-whiz cousin, Kevin said... "Welcome to the Dark Side."
And then the most wonderful thing happened. Through Facebook I reconnected with another cousin. I haven't spoken to her in over a year and I missed our weekly email chats. I didn't know what had happened to her, her emails just stopped and I was getting a little worried. We had a wonderful little "talk" yesterday and now I know where she's at. Big relief.
So today I am thanking God for the internet. Yes, there is all that stuff that can clutter our lives... chat rooms, forums, pop-ups and spam. I know I have to be so careful not to let it take over. But if used right it can be a powerful instrument to explore the world. Yesterday it helped me find my friend.
