You know you're a Facebook addict when you dream up a status in your sleep. Here's what my slumbering fingers typed last night:
I've finally figured it out: my house plants are dying of suicide.
I told Dave about it when I woke up and he dared me to make it a real status. I'm not that desperate for my dreams to come true.
What does this have to do with today's radio broadcast, you ask? A great deal. Because while Dave and I were on the subject of funny Facebook statuses, we dreamed up this one wide awake, and I contemplated posting it:
Here ye! Hear me! I'll be speaking at Braggsburg Community Church tomorrow on the "The Perils of Self Promotion." Don't miss me!
Dave and I like to make fun of self-promoters, and we always wonder if they know how bad they make themselves look:
My book has reached the Dollar Tree! Praise me! Praise me!
But in all fairness, some of us genuinely believe that our creative efforts in the form of books and such may reach one person and change his life forever. For that reason, we are willing to risk being labeled a self promoter.
The truth is, we want to promote Jesus. And to do that, it sometimes means promoting our stuff--the things we write and say about Him.
Now then. At the end of this post, there is a tiny link to a radio interview on the subject of unemployment. It may encourage someone.
Go ahead and click on it. And while you do, I'm off to water some dejected house plants.
