I finally entered the world of facebook. What is facebook, you ask? It is a social networking website...This free site allows people to connect by job or industry, schools, location, interests, etc...(Check out more info HERE)I have heard friends talk about this for a while (actually, I've heard the youth at my church talk about it) I didn't understand it or necessarily want to try it, but I took the plunge today.

Already over 30 friends in the first 4 hours! That is somewhat gratifying. I shutter to think of my emotional state if NO one had agreed to be my facebook friend. I've reconnected with people that I haven't spoken with in years; I've connected with people who share similar interests; and I have found a medium for sharing information rapidly. You should try it!!! Seems fun enough. Yet, I get a sneaking suspicion that this could become a huge time-waster. we'll see! :-)

God’s blessings are always available in abundance. When the “LORD is my shepherd,” “my cup runs over” is a natural result. Blessings overflow from God, who blesses lavishly! We do not have to wait until we get to heaven to experience God’s banquet house. His overflowing grace is something we experience as Christians in this life. Jesus said, “I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly” (John 10:10b). That is a cup running over with God’s grace. He does not just give us the gift of eternal life when we first believed, but He keeps on giving eternal life. Eugene Peterson, in the Message, translates that verse as "real and eternal life...more and better life than they ever dreamed of!" The life He gives us is abundant, in surplus, overflowing! Jesus gives us Himself (John 14:6). He is this abundant life. It is God’s kind of life. “My cup overflows,” means it is not just full; it is “running over,’ filled to the brim and overflowing. God’s saving and sustaining grace is always like that. His grace is always in fullness, abundance and all-sufficiency. Today, recognize the abundance of God's blessing. He is available to you even now as you cry out to Him by faith

We must be so careful to know the truth, to teach the truth, to live the truth. Wave after wave of relativism pushes against absolute truth.

So much of today's TV programming is TV at your own risk!
