Thankfulness ♥ and Social Media

1 Comment


Many have spent the last several weeks expressing their thankfulness. Please let me express mine to all who are wandering through, amidst the cooking and festivities!

You bless me with your attention, I am thankful for your readership, and I am thankful that God allows me to pour Him into the lives of those who wander by, or have joined me on this journey!

Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song. For the LORD is the great God, the great King above all gods. Psalm 95:1-3

I stand Thankful to God, alone, for all of the blessings of 2010…more, I am thankful for the provision that God, alone, will bring in 2011. ♥

Good morning and be blessed greatly this day!
I am thankful for you! ♥

 I am thankful for ~ the Social Media system that  has allowed us to do this world-wide.

Some may think this odd, however, Facebook, WordPress, Blogger  and many, many others allow us to connect with our loved ones who are far away.

We reach the nations! It’s amazing really.

With all the hubbub about social media being a “MeMe” thing, what I am seeing today is thousands of people expressing their thankfulness for one another!

Expressing their love for God and their families! In ways that in the past could not have been done.

We used to send cards; hoping and praying that they arrived on time, to our loved ones. Now, since cards can be so very expensive (the average commercial card being over $3.00) the social media is really a blessing!

I can tell my loved ones that I love them, right now…and they will receive it as soon as they log on, or answer their text messages! Which, if we are honest we tend to do immediately, by rote.

I see people genuinely thankful for being able to have contact with loved ones who live hundreds, to thousands, of miles away. I know we are, here in Hutchland!

My family and I are blessed with the luxury of having chat and Skype conversations with our Son, Daughter -in- Love, Granddaughters and hopefully our Daughter in Alaska. By the way, we live in New Jersey!

Our Daughter-in-Love, Corina, just texted, “Happy Thanksgiving FB family and friends! I am thankful for FB for special days like these! In fact my 3G AT&T cell phone has not stopped getting Thanksgiving blessings by text! Free texting is a blessing!

Social media is and should be a blessing! And it should be used as such!

I thank God for these luxuries, provided today. They allow me to  be connected to those far and wide, and it allows me to express my love. And a bonus blessing is I feel loved! ♥

So no matter your what your issues with the social media system may be, TODAY I encourage everyont to try and to be thankful for the blessing it can be in a life!

Through this particular social media I wish you and yours a Blessed Thanksgiving, may God shine on you today and give you peace!

Thankfulness

 

I Am Thankful!

 

Blessings Loves! ♥

Welcome, I'm Andrea ... HOPEannFAITH ... I write and take pictures as a way of expression. These are gifts given by a loving and indulgent Father, to a headstrong and stubborn daughter, with much to say. A semi-retired social worker/secretary, I now call myself a writer. I've published one internet article and written many blog posts. However, publishing does not make one a writer, anymore than taking a box camera to the park makes one a photographer. What makes one who and what they are? Well God for one ... formed me before the foundations of this world (Psalm 139); and many, many years after putting away my passion for wordsmithing and picture taking He gave it back ... in droves. I am a culmination of my choices and experiences. It is here that my experiences color the world in print and color. It is my goal to reach just one soul a day with love ... encouragement ... understanding or just letting that soul know that they are not alone where they are today. This is about creating ~ all of it. Creating a HOLY and SACRED place where the ugly truth can be healed and the beauty of a moment or a tear can brighten a day for the experience. Why HOPEannFAITH? Hopeannfaith is my inner child, and she is maturing, as she should have done all along. She is learning all about how Faith fulfills Hope. She is learning how to live. HOPEannFAITH ~ the wonder twins all wrapped up in one, me. These are my Journey Journals ~ written and visual. I welcome your company. I welcome your friendships. My Journey is in the light ~ although I have and will share the shadowy corners and the dark ~ so you know that you are never alone there. If we hold hands in the dark, and we walk, side by side, through the shadow, we will reach the Light together. In relationship with one another and with the Light. Blessings.

One thought on “Thankfulness ♥ and Social Media

  1. You know, today was our Congolese friend’s birthday–he joined us for Thanksgiving, spent the night, and woke up this morning, his birthday, that we celebrated with him.

    The fun of watching him interact with friends wishing him a Happy Birthday on Facebook–friends from all over the world, especially Congo (DRC)–was a wonderful thing. My husband phoned his family in Belgium this afternoon and would have Skyped (they couldn’t at that moment, but the technology made it possible).

    So I agree with you–we can use this for good and be grateful for what it does to promote relationships!
