Good Morning, God!
When I first saw an iPhone it was love at first sight — or as my husband Kit calls it, techno lust. And now, having had an iPhone for over a year, my connection with it is even stronger.
It was the black space around the apps (applications) that drew me in. I knew I wanted my life to look like that. I wanted more space around my activities.
Of course, I don’t want to have as many activities as I have apps! In fact, God, there is now a scanner app! It turns the iPhone into a scanner. Amazing! The trouble, God, is that just as with life, there are so many wonderful apps to choose from.
Speaking of apps, God, I just learned how to turn them off. That’s important because, as I just learned, apps say on, draining the battery, if they are not turned off.
All it takes is a “tap tap” on the home circle. Then the apps that are ON appear at the bottom of the screen. If you press and hold one of them down, they all start to shake and have a red circle with a minus sign appears at the top left. If you touch the minus sign for an app — that app turns off. It works for the iPad, also.
Apps running in the background and decreasing our battery strength . . . . That makes me think of the “responsibilities” we carry as, invisible energy drains. Ah, God! Maybe that is one more reason I like to “share” my responsibilities with YOU! — and sometimes just dump them all in Your Lap!
