For those who don’t know, God had me start dyeing scarves back in 2006. God tells me what they should look like and gives me names and sometimes a word that goes with them. Often, I get to hear fantastic testimonies of what God has done through these pieces of silk. I call those testimonies Scarf Stories.
I just posted new ones this week – you might enjoy checking them out!
The fasting is going well. I have to say that once I got over the lack of contact (referring to lack of Twitter and Facebook), I was shocked at how much I did not miss the “noise”. I’ve realized that the steady stream of pings throughout the day had become a total distraction. And although part of me was tempted to dump them both for good – I decided instead it is better (and more character building for me) to learn how to use them in moderation.
Not totally sure what that looks like, but I still have a month for God to tell me 🙂
I found a blog of a local pastor who was talking about Why We Can’t Handle Being Alone – largely in reference to our society’s dependance on social media and texting/cell phones to avoid ever having to be along and as a result we never really get to experience solitude… yet it’s in the solitude that we meet with God. It is a great blog and includes a short video (two and a half minutes) – take a peek if you have a moment!
