I took a look back at the recent pics on my Twitter feed and found that the majority of them were either pictures of food, or Bible scriptures. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. I just found that to be amusingly interesting and wonder if people might think that this is what’s most important to me.
And the answer is yes, it kinda is. Then of course, I have the random flowers (or broken trees) that are growing around my house, a few GIFs to help deliver an expression, and then whatever else is going on in life that’s easier shown than typed. I wouldn’t call my Twitter pic or Instagram feed a fully accurate snapshot of my life, but a good fraction of it. I have yet to find a way to record the entertainment side of me, and I’m usually too busy enjoying the people I’m around to take pictures of those moments… but I’ll work on it. The future intern for the Lost Dial can help with some of that.
For anyone wondering why I feel the need to document scriptures and food, first I nonchalantly reply “Why not?” and then I follow up with that these are things I live by. I love the Lord, I’m not ashamed of being a Christian and I don’t care who knows it. I know that some of the scriptures I post will indeed help someone somewhere, myself included. Lately I’ve been starting my day reading about 5-6 different scriptures and later I’ll choose one to share, usually whichever is most influential to me at that particular time.
As for the food? Well, I love food. Who does’t? Besides that, it’s a reminder to me how good whatever it was I was eating was, and then posting the pic is just to tantalize you and kinda brag about how good whatever it is, was. Also, if I take a picture of food, that means it has my mark of approval (unless otherwise stated). With that said, if I’m at your house eating food that you made, don’t be offended if I don’t take a photo of it. Usually I forget because the food looks so good I want to dive right in and photography is an after thought. But if I have room for seconds, I’ll try to capture it then. Maybe.
I didn’t necessarily feel the need to justify pictures on my timeline, I just wanted those to be aware that I’m aware. In days to come, I plan on inviting my church friends on what I call a food adventure, and you can bet there will be pictures of food, friends and maybe I’ll TextGram the grace before we eat. Foodies unite! Amen.
