Hi Janet, I’m God, I have decided the day has come when I ought to embrace change and start up an account on Facebook. I’d like you to be my friend, will you add me?
Sure thing, God, only, I need to know a little more about you. Firstly, how do I know you are who you say you are? People often make up profiles of people they idolise, and in this world I live in, there seem to be so many faiths and they are all fighting with each other.
Yeah, that’s a bit of a dilemma. See, there really is only one God, me… only, people like to give me nicknames – Some call me Father, some call me Yahweh, El Shaddai, Ha-Shem, Jehovah, some call me Holy Ghost (probably because they can’t see me) Some call me unpronounceable names – I have so many, some even call me, ‘good’. It’s a bit like when you had a baby – you had a pet name for the little one whom you hadn’t met, but already loved, remember? Pookie, Muffy, and Percy? 🙂 Oooo, look I found the smilies!
Well, I kinda thought this might be the case, as – they all seem to love you, think of you as their protector, want to spend time with you, do good things in your name, get people to join them. But, yeah, then they kill each other and say, it’s in the Bible, it’s in the Koran, it’s here …
Again, just like you, many people try to express a kind of relationship with me in words – BTW that Kindle Fire looks real good, and gotta love Amazon. Something for everyone. It’s amazing really – how many people sell the same thing and in so many places. Some places have better savings, deliver on time, listen to their customers well, learn from their mistakes – I really love that you can do it all in your own home – no crowds to bustle and distract you, quiet moments, a nice refreshing drink and comfy chair. Competition isn’t so bad really, the most important thing is to get your message across. That’s why I joined Facebook. It seems everyone – no matter what they believe, no matter what shade or hue of skin they have, no matter what language – there is a common gathering ground and lighter moments, and they find time to come here and connect with others.
Thanks God, that seems to make sense – okay, I will add you. You seem nice. I look forward to getting to know you.
You too, Janet – gotta dash – if I’m not online too often you will understand, I love people – I need go chat with as many as possible, spread myself around a little, do some good stuff, poke a few, hug many. Have a lovely day…
Thanks, I have a lot I need to get on with, I tend to sit and think too much at times instead of doing. It really is a beautiful day here – I’ll just go and say ‘hi’ to some folks. Thanks for stopping my way.
EDIT: Thank you, Nica Mandigma, and your invite to join a 31 day blogging challenge. As I said, my head is in the clouds right now, but I’d love to join you all. I may very well become ‘off topic’.
I put this as my status on Facebook yesterday, and decided this morning, that indeed, it is good enough for a blog item, and so I enter it for day one… Elevator Pitch. I mean, come on, you can’t get much higher than a light conversation with God, can you? 🙂
Uh-oh. Just did a word count on main text? 524. Think I’m slightly over the er, 100-150 guideline! But, another elevator message: It’s the joining in that counts.
