Time is ticking and kicking

Whew! A lot has happened since I last posted! Life and death kind of stuff. It makes one marvel at the tapestry that God weaves in each of our lives. We can't see where the warp and weave are headed, but he is creating a gorgeous scene. Check out the daily musings that my hubby started writing because of the twists thrown his way ...

National Day of Prayer

Although I don't remember it first hand, I understand that when I was a child some schools practiced prayer for "ourselves, our parents, our teachers, our country." This morning I will pray for those same things, but in a formal setting on the National Day of Prayer.

I will expand "my parents" to include my husband and children. I will expand "our teachers" to include my co-workers. And "our country" will specifically be our president, our troops, and as Jesus commanded -- the peace of Jerusalem.

This morning, explosions went off in front of the British consulate in New York. Thugs, terrorists, bullies on a grand scale. In their finite minds they must think they are accomplishing something. The prayers of the righteous accomplish more in a millisecond -- within the will of God.

And on that rambling, I'm going to catch a cab for the breakfast. Indirectly, I will be praying for you.

bittersweet apple

Okay, so I decided to use some of our land money for a new iBook. I'm going to have to get used to using a Mac again. But here's the problem: I bought iWork "preinstalled." Did it come preinstalled? NO! Ah, but there is a disc in the package that says "iWork" on it, so okay, I can install software ... except that when I put the disc in, it clearly says this is a trial version and to purchase the full version go to Hey, guys, I already BOUGHT the full version!!! What's going on here?

So I have my little email question sent to Apple and we'll see what happens. But this is creating a bittersweet taste to the Apple experience. In the meantime, I'll try out a few new things on Tiger. And in the Mac help I'll do my "converting from a PC" training.
