Thanks to you all who commented on my last post and I know that God hears our prayers and responds in his time! However....(you knew that was coming, right??)right after I posted that, I had a shock with my son that required me to remember to let God be God! I guess my faith is learning to stretch, and I'm learning to lean hard on God. It isn't something I think I can even talk about in a blog post.
But I will give some advice. A year or two ago, my son told me about a site called MySpace where we could communicate with each other. This was when he was working in Afghanistan. I created a profile and it was good for a while. There were friends there that I knew and could comment back and forth with. Then I started seeing disturbing things. Young people that I knew who had lots of questionable things on their sites. Revealing pictures and really bad language from unexpected people. I began telling mothers that it might be a good idea if they went to their child's site and checked things out. Ultimately, it led to me seeing things on my own child's site that I should have never seen and so I've deleted that site completely. The original concept was probably not bad. But like lots of things, it just goes further and further away from what it was intended. I know most of you keep a close check on your teens, just be warned that they may have a very clean and safe site, but they can see lots of sites that aren't clean! I think it is very dangerous.
Anyway, that was rambling if I've ever rambled! If it didn't make sense just chalk it up to a strained state of mind...I think I'll start back with the "light" posts tomorrow!
