This morning I stopped by Dunn Brothers for my Wednesday morning cup of joe and writing time. As I sat down enjoying the first sips of my coffee and turned on my computer, it happened. The dreaded blue screen of death. I took a moment and let my computer restart. Tada! – it came to life with the familiar windows that I am used to seeing. But it did not take long until my friend the little blue screen came up. I spent time trying to remedy the problem, then in frustration I gave up.
I was pumped to be writing this week. I came to the table prepared with more thoughts than I could get down. But it was not to be. This morning before I left home I grabbed my Chronological Bible, the one I am using for my daily reading and I put it in my backpack, even though I had done my reading for the day. Now I had nothing to do while I enjoyed my coffee but read my Bible.
While I don’t have a web cam that I can log into to see the scene in the throne room of God, I think I know what went on there today. As the Lord of Heaven and Earth was checking out the kingdom, He took note of me and with great humor watched as I struggled to get my PC to work. Then he called over the angels and invited them to enjoy the scene. With a small grin and a slight nod of His head he said to those gathered, “Now that we have his attention let’s give him something valuable to do.” It was at that point I grabbed my Bible from out of my backpack and began to read… What a joy! It did not take me long to get lost in the text, excitment took over and I was captured.
Then, when time was just right – As I got up to leave, filled and satisfied by The Word. I walked toward the door to discover the keyboard and computer that I now sit at. The watchers gathered around the Lord are all laughing. One man’s blue screen of death is another man’s joy and delight.
Thanks Windows, without you I would have had a different and much less fufilling morning.
p.s. I have no idea what I came here today to write about…. and it doesn’t matter!
