Do you remember when I told you about Mr. Vinson? The hard lesson I learned from that favorite teacher was to read instructions. I realized today that I still have a problem with instructions. I created a facebook page for Living Water and couldn't figure out why Lissa could create a facebook page for her business and I was having to fudge to get my business' name on the page. READ THE INSTRUCTIONS, BECKY! There's a facebook just for businesses, in case you ever need to know that. (By the way, go become a fan on Lissa's facebook page---I need that prize she's giving away!)
I also went to a conference for Living Water yesterday put on by the food bank. I went last year, but totally had my mind closed to learning. I didn't want to be there. But with the fasting I'm doing from being critical, etc., I went with a new attitude this year. And I learned. Amazing! Not only did I learn, but I actually got excited about some new things I plan on implementing at Living Water. Facebook pages for our ministries was mentioned last year, but I didn't do it until this year. I think that new attitude had a lot to do with it.
And speaking of learning, did you know that the median age/profile for facebook is a 55-year-old woman? I love it! (I learned that at the conference.)
I'm learning so much more through this fasting experience, but I just can't bring myself to share it yet. Learning isn't always easy....or painless.
