"Good Morning Ray, This is your wife, typing. I tried calling you to breakfast, but your eyes are glued to the screen and your ears are blocked."
Or how about.
"HELP, Wanted two strong men, to disengage my husband from the computer.
Does this sound like your house....??
I have decided there is a barrier in my life and its called FACEBOOK!.
The devil is on the loose, using what looks like a harmless social connection to prevent every day family communication.
Ray finally came to breakfast, after I had done everything to get him there.
In the end I said my Grace and began to eat, alone, as I often do now.
So for dinner tonight.......
I have made a weapon of mass destruction!!!!
And, it will be directed straight at Ray's stomach.
Ah Ha!! you might well say, whats she up to now..
Well, an American from Tennessee, living in tropical Queensland, occasionally has a hankering for good old fashioned southern food...or tucker, as we say here.
I made him Chilli and Cornbread, ....the fragrance of the south.
His seat is empty, I won this round so.....La La to Facebook!
What is this site doing to person to person communication and relationships?
Nothing replaces the personal, live, human contact.
There are pro's and con's about everything.
With restricted use, it can help people to keep in touch with those friends and family far away.
As with any addiction, it needs to be controlled.
Otherwise, it will control the user.
Will we soon see Face-book Detox Centres?
For some, it may come to that.
What of the future??
I pray that church congregations don't begin to form groups on Facebook.
Otherwise, we will end up with empty places of worship.
What would Jesus say about this?
"Do not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching."Hebrews 10:25
