Do you remember in my last post when I said this:
"I wish I could take a picture of the lake this morning to show you but I left my camera card in the computer so I don't have it. It's a warm morning here and the lake water is cold so there's a beautiful mist covering the water. The sun is shining above it and you can see the tops of the trees on the other side of the lake. It's like God's hand is hovering over the lake. Simply amazing. And beautiful. It just reminds me that God's hand hovers over us every day in that same way. Can't you just picture it? I can see God's hand poised over my head, and your head, and hear Him saying, "This is my beloved." Just like you and I place a hand on our child or grandchild's head and smile down on them, feeling the love for them pour from us to them. Only how much greater is His love. :)"
That afternoon a friend was here visiting and we decided to go for a boat ride to show her the lake. It was cloudy so not too hot and we were puttering along very slowly looking at all the houses along the shore when I remembered that it was supposed to storm that day. I told Jerry I thought we ought to go home. "In a minute" he said. I told him again. But there was one more thing he wanted to show our friend. And then we turned back to make the trip home. But there was this cove he thought he ought to explore so he slowed down and puttered that way. "Home!" I said. And he just smiled and said, "Now honey, it's fine. It's not too dark back that way." And it wasn't. Until we went around the bend. HUGE BLACK CLOUDS. And the wind came up. And the waves got choppy. But then I remembered the mist that morning and I remembered thinking God has His hand over this lake and the light bulb went off. God told me before I ever went for that boat ride, before I even knew I would be going on a boat ride, that His hand was on me. On us. On that lake. We got to the dock just as the hail started. Just in time. God's time. Amen.
My computer is home at last! And compared to what it did before it is lightening fast! I'm thrilled. I have things to do. I have things to say. I have recipes to print. I have people to send cards to and all the addresses are on the computer. I have pictures to look at and all the pictures are on the computer. (Yes it's all backed up so don't panic). If I could do a double back flip I would. Want to know what the major problem was? Of course you do. When the nice guy in the geek squad put in the new motherboard, he put the memory card in wrong. So it would only read part of the card. A very small part. Nice guy in the geek squad is not on my good side.
