Every time I see a reminder from Facebook about something I have put there in the past, a little voice inside my head thinks, "Wow, has it been that long ago when I posted that picture?"
And then I start thinking of all the time I've wasted on a website - tracking what's happened to family and friends in a day and all the feelings that come along when something I've labored to post gets no reaction.
The website is free, but it has cost me countless minutes I will never get back, invested in doing nothing, and fostering feelings and attitudes that have not been helpful. Feelings and attitudes that should not be in my heart.
And other sites - like my blog - have suffered since I waste time on Facebook while my blog site goes ignored. I pay for the blog, but FB is free, yet it gets the lion's share of my attention.
Stuff I read on Facebook is rarely spiritually beneficial. In fact, many of my reactions and postings have been things that after having posted them, the Holy Spirit has convicted me of their being UN-Christian.
Like taking out the trash each week, or uncluttering a room, I'm thinking it's time to be done with Facebook.
I won't be missed. Like a busy train station or shopping center at Christmas, people are running here and there doing this and that and my little tidbits are just a drop in everyone's bucket. So, I'll just keep my drops to myself.
