Social Media Revolution

Some days I would just like to be able to not think about things in such strange ways.
I would like to tell my brain, "hey, knock it off! Be "normal" for God sakes!
In our effort to try and be "normal", Dan and I recently went to a Kingdom Business meeting in South Carolina.
The goal - networking.
You move from conference room to conference room listening to new ways to work with in the Christian community.
It sounded like a good way to get our feet wet.
Truthfully, my head was spinning!
As we sat in one of our "break out sessions", this one on "The Social Media Revolution" learning about Twitter, Facebook and blogging, all to stay in-touch with this fast paced life, my mind wondered off down the ever present road of the life of women in Haiti and people who live in a third world.

I wanted to stand up and say, I have one for you...I bet you never thought about the fact that women in third world countries have to sell their cell phones so that they have enough money for the midwife to come and cut the umbilical cord after they have just delivered a baby all alone in a 8 x 8 cinder block house with a corrugated tin roof that they share with eight other people.
How's that for Networking!
My foot was swing back and forth, my frustration was showing!
On que, the camera man motioned with exaggerated hand gestures 1....2....3....
The audience began clapping as prompted, this session was being taped.
It was good I behaved and not caused a scene like the one in my head of me standing up, raising my hand, wanting to know when the church forget about the fact that most of the world can't and won't Twitter, because they are too busy trying not to die from malaria or starvation.
Maybe they missed the Power Point at the local church on that one!
Is America not able to have church without a Power Point?
Just asking......

Forgive me! I remember now why I don't want to be "normal".

I will trying to remember the words of Tara......

Not everyone eats, sleeps and breaths this stuff!!

Parker's Birthday!!

Happy Birthday Parker Hughes Lynch
Ten Years Old!

I remember laying in the operating room hearing a nurse say "10/4".....
I was thinking "10/4 Good Buddy" never thinking in a million years this was the weight of the baby boy that I just delivered via c-section.
Soon the nurse came to me and confirmed he in fact did weigh 10 lbs 4 oz.
Never did I dream I would have a ten pound baby!
We spent Thanksgiving in the hospital that year.
We call him our "Thanksgiving" baby for many reasons, not just for the date of his birth.
He has blessed our family in many ways, for this we are thankful!
