Just Thinking: Dependent
So sorry I haven't been posting. The satellite provider had a downed satellite. Which means,in short--no Internet, no blogs. Three days incommunicado. Aggghhh.
Yesterday, I went to town and used my hotspot to grab some Internet time. I wasn't able to do a lot because at the same time, the new church treasurer and I were struggling through a year-end report, but at least I whittled down the 175 emails to a mere 100. The rest I dealt with after returning home when the Internet had decided to work again.
What's funny about this is that in our Bible Study on Sunday we talked about anger and how we often become angry at inanimate objects. Like satellites. Like Internet--or the lack thereof.
It was a struggle not to take out the anger on the technicians. I called Hughesnet and spent about an hour and a half on the phone with them, then Linksys for another hour, then back to Hughesnet where someone finally told me their satellite was down.
I can't believe how dependent we've become on the Internet. Wouldn't it be neat if we were just as dependent on God? Then again, maybe I am. What if God shut off his presence for three days? Don't know about you, but I would be devastated.
Which brings up another thought--how did God the Father feel when He was out of contact with His Son for three days?
