This will be my last post for a while.
My Dell laptop is sick. She has been through home testing with Dell agents and the decision was made she needs a hospital visit.
My hope was a new adapter would aid in the charge recovering to 100% but of course that didn’t happen. Now the doctor believes the motherboard is suffering and may need surgery.
As soon as I received this heartbreaking news, WITHDRAWAL SET IN LIKE MAXI POUNCING ON A MOUSE.
My beloved laptop is sitting on my lap as I type this post. The people at Dell have no idea what it will be like for us to be apart; and possibly a few weeks. Besides the many uses she offers I simply cannot write/blog on my phone or Mark’s ipad. At least they are substitutes to some degree until she returns.
I don’t believe in coincidences but after not feeling like writing this book I am supposing to be writing for the last year, I began to do so a week or so ago. And then…..that was when I noticed it wasn’t charging completely. Hhhhhhhmmmmmmmm……….
However there may be a slight silver lining. God may be allowing us to be apart to break my addiction?
What is the saying, “you never know what you miss until you don’t have it?”
In that line of thinking I impose the great writer, the Apostle Paul.
I have had a picture in my mind of him sitting at an ancient desk in the middle of a prison writing the gospels. With his parchment paper, quill pen and ink jar he wrote some of the greatest books ever written.
He didn’t know what computers were. Nor pens and paper as we have today. Forget erasers or whiteout; he didn’t even have electricity for lighting. God supplied what he needed to pursue writing words that have survived centuries.
He probably didn’t miss what he never had. How can one miss what doesn’t exist?
Yet he managed to compose the Holy Spirit’s words in the simplest forms. I wonder if he had any idea of the magnitude of his prison sentence.
What appeared to be horrible conditions kept him in one place, under one roof without distractions to perform God’s will on earth. And without a Dell.
“I will be back.”
