HAVE I BEEN HACKED?

Do not click on any links in this article!

Some of you know that I started a photo blog last year.

My pictures are definitely not professional grade, but I am having fun.

Or, maybe I should say I was having fun until I went back through some of my previous posts and discovered that I now have links embedded in some of the wording that I did not put there.

I don’t know where they lead to, was afraid to click on them; but I highlighted the affected areas and clicked the unlink button.  It did not work, so I had to reword some of my dialogue.  That seemed to do it — I think.

And as I was typing this, I went to see the preview, and there were words even before I was done that were highlighted and underlined as if a link were put there – that I did not do.

I also found to my astonishment that there were offensive ads at the top and side of my dashboard.  One that was advertising a meeting site with a girl that was in the process of undressing.

I sent a message to WordPress through the help button, but have not heard anything back yet.

I know there have been some sites that have been hacked, but not the details of what was done.

Not sure if this means I have been hacked, or what.

I am not sure if this site has been tampered with, but won’t get to checking out my past posts for a day or two, if then.

Just wanted to let everyone know not to click on any links unless I have made it plain in the wording that it is a legitimate link.  I don’t know where you will end up or what damage will be done to your computers if you follow a bogus link.

And on that note ….  have a blessed day.

FUTURE POSSIBILITIES

As I sit here this evening, trying to put jumbled thoughts and ideas into some semblance of order, I am floundering. It seems as if a lifetime has passed since I last sat and stared at this empty white expanse.

Over the last few days, the desire to once again put words to paper has continued to grow in me, creating a need that has long been dormant.

Off and on over the years I have felt this need, as if my very being were in some way attached to the white expanse that took my thoughts so effortlessly, filling in with the essence of my life.

I stare at the white square, heart beating quickly, as I pray for just the right thing to fill it with.

A remembered lesson perhaps?

A kind deed received?

A hint of romance hidden in the day to day living of an imagined friend?

Shared minutes with beloved family that are all too soon memories to be tucked into pages of a book?

Maybe, just for now, it is enough to see this white expanse fill with thoughts of future possibilities while my heart fills with joy and contentment.

Oh how I have missed this!

How I have missed the way thoughts and words tumble through my fingertips to pour out according to the Lord’s leading!

This is my comfort zone. This is my niche.

It is like coming home.
