What I like about this application breaking into my life – well – breaking into my computer - is the clock. For some reason 8:04 am has less of an impact on me located down in the corner of my screen than the same time on an analog (you’ll need to Google this for accuracy). I tend to lose track of time when I write, so that second hand is great as a symbolic reminder that life is going by.
I’m getting a bit mixed up on the hands of the clock because our most prominent analog clock at home has a knife and fork for hands. As Pam learns to tell time, we get things like “the knife is at 6 and the fork is on the 4”. It’s getting like Celsius and Fahrenheit temperature scales for me. It always a guess at what the temperature in Celsius really feels like and who knows what freezing is in Fahrenheit anymore!
Well, the application was easy enough to figure out how to change the weather to Regina, dump the US news sources, and delete the sports news!
“For everything there is a time, a matter for every season under heaven” – so don’t let it slip away. Life is a gift, and at times there is unexpected blessing that come our way – like my new gadget.
Let us pray this Pentecost “spirit of life, come unto me.” *
Enjoy life! May Pentecostal surprises come your way.
