Crash!


Well, I had so much fun doing the Christmas Trees post!
I posted and ran out the door! Time to take the youngun' to Music Practice...
came home to check e-mails and something was not right with the PC.
We spent the evening and the next day trying to get it straight
and finally we just had to have the funeral, get all the music and writing off and do a re-install. My Honey worked late into Wednesday night doing that, (he's a smart & sweet cookie!)
and my son was so helpful the night before in figuring out how to hook the internet up to an old laptop so I could answer some comments and e-mails.
So, all that was to say I am back in the saddle again! And If I use to have your e-mail, I don't now...so please be sure and e-mail me so I can add you to my contacts again!

Computer issues can be such a pain. I am glad you were able to save some of the stuff off the old one.
We have had crashes before and lost all of our business records. Since then we have learned to back up.At least I hope my husband is still backing up. ;)

Sharon,
Yes!I am VERY grateful for that! It really was a blessing that we were able to.

Now that so much stuff is off the PC, it is faster! So that is cool, too!

Heidi,
I have the best time looking for photos & feel like I found a prize when I get just the certain one!

Thanks!

Bummer!!!
Computers are great, and when they crash - how GREAT the crash!
I'm glad you're up and running again.

What Does it Mean Anyway? "Free to Fly"...

Well, it's like this: Here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Free: a : having the legal and political rights of a citizen b : enjoying civil and political liberty c : enjoying political independence or freedom from outside domination d : enjoying personal freedom : not subject to the control or domination of another2 a : not determined by anything beyond its own nature or being : choosing or capable of choosing for itself...having a scope not restricted by qualification 7 a : not obstructed, restricted, or impeded ...Now, here are some of the Webster's Dictionary definitions of Fly:1 a : to move in or pass through the air with wings b : to move through the air or before the wind or through outer space c : to float, wave, or soar in the air ... a : to take flight ...6 : to work successfully ...Examples which apply from Websters: fly high : to be elated - fly in the face of or fly in the teeth of : to stand or act forthrightly or brazenly in defiance or contradiction of

What does this mean in my life? This means that in life we are meant to be free. While historically mankind has not always enjoyed the opportunity to fully appreciate what that means, we are so indescribably fortunate as to live in a time of the greatest spiritual, physical, financial and political freedom ever known. Freedom doesn't come cheap, nor does it come easy. But the best things in life don't come that way do they? As I write this I am struck by how this sounds like a political statement, and for me this is much more of a spiritual thing, but, same goes for that (political that is). Freedom doesn't come easy. And it's worth whatever fight you have to make to overcome in your life in order to live a life that succeeds. Now the questions is - what is success for you? What is your standard? In my mind what is needed is a definite target - because you can't hit and maintain a moving target. A stable, rock-solid, anchor with no variable, yet multi-faceted. Something pure, just and worthy. If you look at any web page of news you can see that our society is certainly lacking in this area. What a great time to live as a rebel! Nowadays to be a rebel, all you have to do is be willing to engage in the battle of life, while anchored to Christ!
