Seeking, Asking and Knocking — Looking Ahead

The view from Neiman Marcus's Mariposa restaurant

Good Morning, God!

I had such a GOOD day, yesterday. Our oldest daughter, Suzanne, has arrived from L.A. We spent the day running a few errands and then Christmas shopping at Ala Moana.

While we were running the errands we got to complaining about how slowly our iPhones ran when they were searching the web. So, I called AT&T to complain. Fortunately, I did say to Nicole, the customer service rep, “Maybe I’m doing something wrong.” Yes, God, there was a slightly sarcastic tinge to my voice. Still, I was thankful I added that — because I was doing something wrong!

I had the wifi setting ON instead of OFF. So my poor dear phone spent minutes trying to find a wifi connection — instead of searching the web. I changed the setting, restarted my iPhone and the response time changed to a second or two. Amazing.

Sometimes solutions to problems are just as simple as “changing a setting.” The good news, God, is that Suzy is going to help me “change a few settings.” The even better news is that I want her help!

Well, yes, I was grumpy a few times as she pointed out problems — and You’re right, I did try to change the subject several times. Let’s face it, God, changing settings, habits, and definitions is painful. Even just thinking about it is painful. Sigh.

But, I have help! My mom is busy setting a good example and Suz will keep on persisting. But, inner changes really do require that I keep on seeking, asking and knocking for Your Help!
