My life in 9 minutes. It’s much richer and deeper than it appears here. LOL!!! I have an advantage over you – I have the actual memories that go along with the photographs! You are just seeing pictures that you can’t relate to – except maybe the hair styles or wild fashion statements we made at times in the 1970’s. Life really IS a vapor…
There is a cloud of witnesses with me. I’m glad, but sometimes I wish they were here to help me out with stuff. I mean, I don’t think they would be a lot of help, but just having them here telling me it’s gonna be okay would be nice.
I have missed my family a lot this week. It’s been the most technologically challenging week since I started the two facebook pages and the group. It feels as though I have been smacked from all sides. Most recently it appeared that You Tube had banned me, which I thought was odd and frankly – rash. No warning or explanation – all of my You Tube posts were a square black – that’s all.
But this morning everything returned to normal on You Tube- so it must have been an issue with my computer – I don’t know. That’s the problem – I don’t know. Most people have someone they can turn to, but I feel like a Lone Ranger in Blog Land. A million thoughts went through my mind – did I break a rule?
Did someone report me to You Tube for posting something I should not have (which, by the way, there is a setting that would not allow me to embed your video if you don’t want me to snag it). It’s under Advanced Settings. There’s a box that is checked by default – it says embed. If you uncheck that box, I can’t snag your video for my blog. If that box is not unchecked, I’m going to assume you don’t mind if I share it – but I will leave a question on your comments – something like “May I share this on my blog?” Why? Because I’m trying to be a nice, good person. I want others to ask before using my slide shows, so… I ask before snagging someone’s video. It’s a Golden Rule philosophy.
I have not been able to post any of my own, original designs on my pages in facebook for a few weeks. That has not changed – every time I try to post, I get an error message. Thank God for the other administrators because they have happily taken up the slack for me and oh how I appreciate it!
Last night I hit the proverbial brick wall. I was crying and got on my knees and cried out to God. I asked for His guidance and He reminded me that everything, good and bad, happens for a reason and in His time, not mine.
Suddenly I didn’t feel so alone anymore. The anxious, nervous, tense feeling left and was replaced with a calm reassurance that yes, these things are happening, but God has a plan. It may be that one of the other administrators needs to be needed – and I sure do understand that feeling. I don’t know the reason and I don’t have to know that. I just have to know that it’s ok because God has this! Wink! 😉
