My old iBook finally bit the dust just prior to Thanksgiving... quite literally. I was trying to carry too many things out to my car, the iBook was under my arm and slipped out... hitting the concrete floor of our garage. Disaster! Fortunately, I had a back-up of everything from within the last couple of weeks prior to the wreck. But no replacement would be in sight for quite some time due to budgetary constraints.
I tried to take this devastation in stride and trust the Lord for things far more meaningful and important than a laptop computer. Yet it was putting a bit of a crimp in my working style.
Then along comes grace in the form of my incredible family. Ann, Rebecca, her husband, Devon, Jonathan and Elizabeth all gave me the gift of a new Apple MacBook Pro for Christmas. I ordered it Christmas morning and it arrived on the Wednesday after. Good timing, since I take the week between Christmas and New Year’s as vacation almost every year, this would allow me to get things all set up the way I want on the new MacBook.
I am so thankful for a family who cares. They are a blessing. Thanks to one and all!
