Addicted to Social Media..

Good evening everyone! I hope you are doing well!

Last night was the Golden Globes here in the USA. The Best Motion Picture Drama went to The Social Network.

Really???

How addicted to Facebook is society, that the best film of the year is this movie? I totally have to disagree with the Hollywood Foreign Press on this one.

Wow..

I am just curious, does anyone know of an award show for Christian movies? If so, I would be interested in finding out what it is, and who votes for the movies.

The point of this post is not to talk about movies. I guess what I am trying to get across is that our society is more focused on technology, and social media, and “connecting”, to actually CONNECT with people. I know we talk through Facebook and text, etc.., but how deep into someone’s life can you get without the occasional meeting in person?

Now this is solely my opinion, but I think the definition of connecting has been re-written, and it needs to go back to the way it used to be; where people communicate on that deeper level.

Let me know what you think…

Until next time readers, God Bless!

New Year’s Resolutions (A Look Back..)

Good evening everyone! Happy New Year! Welcome to 2011! I hope everyone had a great New Year’s Eve and Day.

Tonight I wanted to take the time to look back on my resolutions from 2010, and see which ones I kept, and which ones I didn’t. I also wanted to make some for 2011. The 2010 resolutions we posted around the last week of Dec. 2009. Check the original posts out if you want.

Resolution 1: Loose Weight– (FAIL)

Well that didn’t work. I gained probably another 20 pounds last year. I guess that is what married life does to you. I don’t know. So.. I am putting this one back on the list for 2011. I actually went to the gym tonight. We will see what happens.

Resolution 2: Get Connected on a Deeper Level– (Semi-Fail)

Well I have met some more people, and I have actually connected with some on a deeper level. I started playing softball, and naturally as a team you create that bond. I want to grow closer to these guys, and well other people from church, or even work. I will put this back on the list for 2011 as well.

Resolution 3: Serve God More (Semi-Fail)

I actually was a member of the camera team at North Church for a little bit. I also helped out at a soup kitchen, and helped give out winter items to the homeless. I am not trying to pat myself on the back at all. I give God all the glory on that. I do though am going to put this on the list again. Me and my wife are looking to serve together at the church this year.

Resolution 4: Give to Charity ( Semi- Fail)

When the earthquake hit Haiti, I donated money to two different charities. I haven’t donated since then. I have however given money to people in need that I know locally. Again, I am not trying to pat myself on the back. I am putting this on the list again for this year. I want to contribute more

Resolution 5: Become a Better Husband ( Semi-Fail)

Over the last year, I have worked at doing this. I have attended a class, read books, etc. I am putting this one on the list again. I guess there is always need for improvement, due to us not being perfect.

——————–

Those are my resolutions for 2010/2011, but I wanted to add one as well.

Resolution 6: Blog More

I started this blog as a ministry to myself and to other people. I started off writing practically everyday. Life gets in the way sometimes, and I stopped doing that, or even blogging once a week at the most. Well, I want to bring up my game. I have several people who read this blog, and makes me feel good. I like doing this. So yeah.. Look for more to come.

So what are your resolutions this year?

Until next time readers, God Bless!
