Becky was 73 and just got her first computer. After her son had spent over 2 hours teaching her how to use it, she was sure she knew everything there was to know about computers.
Unfortunately though, one day she couldn’t get it to start so she promptly called an Internet Tech guy to come over and take a look at it. The IT guy managed to fix the issue in a few minutes and was on his way.
Becky was proud when she overheard the IT guy on the phone with his boss telling him about the issue; she was sure it meant it was a serious problem and he took care of it the right way.
“Excuse me if you don’t mind me asking,” asked Becky to the man on his way out. “I couldn’t help overhearing you on the phone with your boss. What exactly is an Id ten T problem? So that I can tell my son.” The man smiled, took out a pen, “it stands for this: I-D -1-0-T”. Author unknown
Reflections: Love the Shoes
I remember a while back, I dressed up and went out for dinner with some friends. I dressed with care and felt pretty good about my outfit, and was looking forward to a night out. At the end of the evening, my sweet friend leaned over and told me, with a giggle, that I had two different black heels on.
As I looked down at my shoes, I not only had two different shoe styles on, but they were two separate heights! Now how could that happen? I walked around all evening and didn’t even notice. I wonder if I am a little off kilter. Don’t answer that. Lol
I love the beautiful friendships that have come to my life. The people who make me laugh when I feel like crying and encourage me when I am in a fog.
They help me to see the blessings with kindness and not rebuke and love me when I am unlovely. Many times our friends can show us God’s love, as we ourselves learn to pass God’s love onto others.
I often think about Jesus and His friends while He walked this earth many years ago. I imagine they laughed together and enjoyed fun times as they walked the dusty roads. They learned to help people and serve others from the Master.
God showed them the way to live with open hands and how to love and encourage those around them. The Bible says:
John 15:12-14 (NLT)
12 This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. 13 There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command.
I wonder do I show that kind of love to my friends, as I try to serve God?©
“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another:
‘What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” C.S. Lewis
