Thanks, everyone! My laptop has a new, happy owner. (Well, I hope she's happy!)
As I was reloading the laptop with Windows 7 and getting it all spiffed back up, I had to laugh at my human nature. I put all the whiz-bang multimedia software on and was playing with the remote control, when it dawned on me... Wow, this is a really cool computer. Too bad I'm getting rid of it!
Isn't that just like us? In matters big and small, I for one, have no idea what I really want in life. I was listening to Beth Moore speak last night about the heart, and she quoted St. Augustine, who described God as "interior intimo meo" which is latin and means, "Closer to me than I am to myself."
How cool is that? Isn't it awesome that we serve a God that knows us better than we know ourselves? I, for one, am so happy that not only am I not required to completely understand myself, but I can trust that God does and that he'll do what's best for me. In the meantime, I'm free to worship him and make the best choices I can.
That makes me feel so good, I think I'll start shopping for a new computer. I know exactly what I want...
