I haven’t blogged for a few days because of a catastrophic computer failure. It feels like I lost my wallet. Wounded. Broken. When the computer technician told me I should have backed up, I told him that he shouldn’t preach that sermon when the wounds are fresh.
The bad news: I didn’t back up.
The good news: For the first time in months, I actually printed out my sermon before Saturday. Usually I wait till just before the service to print it out, so I can tinker with it till the last minute. But this past weekend, I had already printed it out, so when my computer crashed, I didn’t have the added stress of trying to reconstruct my sermon notes. THANK YOU, GOD. Awfully merciful of you.
The worst news: all our family pictures since our 4 year old son was born (including his birth pictures) are on that hard drive… and haven’t yet been recovered. OUCH. I think Margi still loves me, though.
Oh… we didn’t recover my Bible software, so I’ll be limping along with internet stuff for a while.
