My computer crashed. The hard drive is dead, destroyed, kaput! I broke out in hives, how can this be? My world is falling apart! Tried to stay calm, but how could I, when my computer wiz friend told me that all the data is lost? "Hey" I said, "it is my life in there..."
Somehow the day went by, and I went to sleep. Woke up the next morning and lo and Behold the sun was shining. That is weird, I thought to myself, the sun does not supposed to shine when the world is destroyed...Went through the second day somehow, woke up in the morning and by golly, the sun was still shining. Is God telling me something?
Had some extra time (since I could not waste it sitting at the computer), so I put my grand daughter in the stroller and went for a walk around the neighborhood. First thing we heard were the birds singing, then we saw the blue sky and the white fluffy clouds. we saw kids with back-packs hurrying to catch the school bus. Then we saw live horses in the neighbor's barn, and my grand daughter got exited. We saw Joggers, and walkers exercising, greeting each other with a warm good morning.
Let me tell you, it was wonderful seeing God's creation functioning, and right there and then, as I was wiping my grand daughter's nose, I decided to focus on that. I came to the realization that if I Will continue to blog, the world will still continue to function without me. I came to the realization that I don't have to argue theology with every Tom, Dick and Derek. How many of us changed their beliefs as a result of someone Else's arguments? How many of us really understand that we are just wasting our time arguing our man-made doctrines and beliefs, with other man-made doctrines and beliefs? How many of us are still listening?
So, I am choosing to live life worthy of Him. It has been almost two weeks and I had a great time away from the computer. I intend to continue in this path, there is nothing better or worthy in life than to see the sparkle of (Emanuel) My grand daughter's eyes when she sees something new that God created. This is my farewell, my brothers sisters and friends, I will remember all of you fondly, but now it is time to start living the life God wants me to live.
I love you all, and to all who I have offended in any way, please forgive a silly old man.....
