I am very happy to let my readers know that I finally have a computer!
My mom had a stroke a couple of years ago just after she bought this laptop. She never really got the hang of using a computer and then was unable to use it due to her limitations after the stroke. I never asked her for it. This week as I was visiting her at her home and painting her finger nails, she asked me if I wanted to use her laptop. I looked up, smiled at her and said "That woud help me out tremendously."
She got up from the couch and retrieved it from her bedroom. I thought it was broken but she informed me her friend took it to Best Buy and had it fixed.
While painting her nails I asked "Just curious Mom, why didn't you offer it to me 6 months ago?"
"I just thought of it" she said.
And that was the end of that subject. Since her stroke she doesn't stay with one subject very long.
I don't have a bible study to tie into this, just praises to God for His timing and provisions.
In the last 6 months I have been clay in the Potter's hands: punched down, kneaded, pressed down flat. Even so, I have been held firmly in the work of His hands. He is not done with me. He is always shaping me and smoothing out the rough spots. My faith is in His vision for my future.
Today is day one of the rest of my life (as Matthew West sings) and for today I am working on this computer. I have updated it and have been setting it up for my writing endeavors. Thankfully, the library is close by and has comfortable work stations and WiFi.
Praise God for answered prayer!
Let the writing take wind Lord, my sail is up!
