Well, The Mom is finally beginning to think more about moving to the new White Computer. She has so many photos, that it might be best to work on that part of it first–for organization purposes. She’s been watching tutorial videos, and it looks like it’ll be fun to work with her movies with that new program; but it’s learning how to make the same slide-show videos she used to, and how to fix up pictures and make collages as well as she’d learned with the old program. That’s what the training will be good for.
Meanwhile, Easter feels like it starts a new “devotional year”, so we’re taking this opportunity to rearrange our morning Bible reading. Which is another program that won’t be available on the new computer, so we’ve discovered some great tools available on the internet. At one site you can store your own notes, use your favourite version of course, highlight or otherwise mark up verses (in different colours), etc. Another site organizes reading the whole thing in a year, starting at whatever date you want, and choosing whatever method–we like the chronological one. We chose a date to make Acts start in May of next year; which means that we can skip some days when The Mom is busy, since the start date isn’t until July or something. The link for each day becomes crossed out when you’ve clicked on it (it assumes you’ve read it). Really, you could take as long as you want, and just enjoy seeing them get crossed out as you read them! Isn’t it amazing how much we use the computer for these days?
OH–we’ve discovered another sign of SPRING (in spite of snow & cold hanging around!): The Mom hasn’t been wearing SLIPPERS for weeks! (She usually wears BOTH warm socks & slippers.)
“…guard the treasure you were given! Guard it with your life. Avoid the talk-show religion and the practiced confusion of the so-called experts. People caught up in a lot of talk can miss the whole point of faith.
