“Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.”
Do you remember a moment when you realized you just couldn’t do it on your own?
I am learning how, in these moments, it is important to become vulnerable, fall on my knees & have my Prayer Team on speed-dial!
American culture has historically encouraged us to be independent.
This freedom of choice is a gift, and yet it can also lead to us feeling as though we are the masters of our own destiny. Even now, as independent as the modern life may be, we are still part of many social structures.
I enjoy Instagram. I enjoy the quick little reminders and updates from those who I am following. I especially love the many #hashtag combinations created!
Mostly because the hashtags remind me of the many road trips our family would take to visit family in New Jersey and the ‘license plate’ games my sister and I would play in the back-seat of the car. (How many States can you find? Double numbers? Double letters?) But I especially found it to be so much fun deciphering the unique number/letter combinations that drivers would inscribe on their license-plates to create a message! Some seemed so perfect in description that you felt as if you were finding out a piece of information (from the inscription,) regarding who was contained within the vehicle! While others simply left you giggling and wondering about the mystery behind the message.
I suppose both a #hash&license ‘tag’ could be compared to the tag-lines on our blog sites too! Just a few little words to describe what you can expect to find at our sites.
These tags, hashes, and license messages, in a way, leave you with clues to what is contained behind the photo, driver, message, & blog-writer. And the added fun is sometimes the discovery of what these tags inspire in each of us!
