Today we had a birthday party for our middle daughter, Katie. Today she is 23 years old, and it’s certainly hard to believe.
It doesn’t seem that long ago that she was just a baby, walking around on all fours with a bottle hanging from her mouth looking like a little elephant with a big smile.
Now she’s doing her student teaching, getting ready to graduate from college, and not too far from getting married, herself. No, there hasn’t been a proposal, but it won’t be long.
They grow up too fast, you know.
So, for Katie’s birthday we had a painting party. It was going to be a Bob Ross kind of evening, but it went from regular paint to water colors. We couldn’t get together all we needed for a night with Bob.
But that was OK. Even though we weren’t able to paint any “happy” trees, we did get to pick an instructional video from YouTube to play on the television, and from that we gained inspiration to paint our own flowery artwork.
To top it all off, my wife and I were finally able to find a used charging cord to plug in to this old MacBook! The last time I used it was in September of 2017, and only for a short time. I found it out on a loading dock being thrown away by our department of education. A friend of mine wiped it clean and charged it, and that was the last time it ran.
Now, sitting here in our living room, just about to get ready for bed, I’m using this 12-year-old piece of equipment that’s built better than just about anything in the house, including our other computers. I mean, this computer sat out in the weather for a couple of weeks with a bunch of other scrap about to be put into a dumpster!
I just wanted to break out the old computer and show it some love, but I haven’t been able to think of any biblical lessons to share. What about you?
Can you think of any spiritual applications I could make?
Y’all have a great evening! I’m going to bed.
Happy birthday, Katie!
