Not So GRRRRR!!!

On Monday I discovered that my kitchen computer wouldn't start, and there were some very important files on it I needed to finish a fundraising calendar.

When I discovered the problem I sent an panicky email to Bill, a friend/computer guru who built the computer for us several years ago.  Hubby Tony was nice enough to take the computer tower to Bill's during lunch, and Tuesday night when I was out running errands I got a call from Bill.  He told me he'd started working on the computer, asked which files I needed to complete my project, then emailed them to me; they were waiting in my Inbox when I got home.

As I suspected, once I had the files the changes to the document the printer had asked for didn't take long to complete.  I sent the revised files to the committee one last time, then (with fingers crossed)  submitted them to the printer first thing on Wednesday.  I talked to him later in the morning, and he said everything looked good and he should be able to have the project done by the target date of next weekend.

There are no coincidences in life.  Tuesday morning, when I didn't know how things would all work out, I read the day's page from this year's calendar.  It said:
When you don't know what to do, pray.
A good reminder.


  1. fantastic, great friend to have too! Let us know the fate of the computer!

  2. Oh glad it worked out well in the end. I could imagine how traumatic it must have been. It is great you have a friend who is an IT expert. Hope your computer is ok. Have a great weekend.

  3. God answers prayers. I've been teaching that in Sunday School. Your lesson is a good example. Thanks for sharing.
