I have been having some computer woes for a few weeks. The poor little laptop was doing funny things…running very slow and freezing up a lot. I could have done the PCmatic commercial! In an attempt to fix my issues, I somehow pretty much killed the thing. So Wally took it in for me to get a diagnosis. They ran their tests. I am pretty sure I was doing a “system resume” but they said I erased the hard drive. Really? How does one do that? Anyway, my “stuff” was all gone! And I really like my “stuff”.
Yesterday Wally picked up the laptop for me and I am trying to get all the “stuff” put back. I will now skip the ad for PCMatic and do one for Carbonite. I am so thankful to have Carbonite which saves all my good “stuff” and keeps it safe. I am also thankful for Andrea who tells me how to run Carbointe’s Restore program. She helped me get my pictures back. That is the big thing. So yes, I am very thankful this week.
On Tuesday as I was reading my Bible and feeling kind of defeated in a lot of areas if my life, I read a familiar Psalm. Psalm 23. The first little phrase of verse three just jumped off the page, “He restoreth my soul;” Maybe the computer issues had my mind thinking this way already, but I needed a “systems restore” action in my heart. Maybe I even needed to erase that old hard drive that told me I was defeated and kept me running slow. Oh my goodness, how encouraged I felt. Truly my soul was restored! There’s even a program that allows that action to to keep taking place…just simple time in the Word and in prayer with my Lord. For that I am really, very thankful!
