Welcome to Monday, August 1, 2016. What's up with all these challenges people are issuing on Facebook? I challenge you to share 7 days of testimonies about you and your spouse. Really? Seven days? Before that one even gets started good, there's a new one out there. Many of them are good, but, do people think that most folks have nothing else to do in life than to respond to this variety of challenges? Like I say, some are good. I responded to one from a missionary who wanted those who follow his ministry to state in the response line the name of their Church and its location. Something like that sounds very useful. There's a new one asking people to nominate a pet photo. That should totally muck things up for a while. You may be okay with the postings that come with a warning. "If you don't share this, then you need to get right with God. And, I mean share, not 'like'." Or, you don't love Jesus. Or, you don't really care. Give me a break! I don't like those at all. One day the wife said something about one she saw but she couldn't find it to show it to me. I told her not to worry because they typically have a life of their own similar to nuclear materials, therefore, it will show up again at a friend's posting block near you. There's a new one where folks ask people to put a message on their posting if they are connected to them as family, either by blood or otherwise. I've already seen dozens of those popping up here and there. One was from someone who is close to me. I sent them a private message and told them I had seen where they copied that message and posted it, asking for responses. I told them I had one question. Why? I wasn't trying to be rude. I really want to know. That's just me. And, I do know how to ignore a request even those that have threats included. Comes in handy.
