Working on my Website and on Myself

Good Evening, God!

I’ve been having a really satisfying time working on my website! I have patched together two “movies” from still photos. The first one was A Walk in Kapiolani Park and the second Dawn at Wawamalu Beach. Such fun!

But, as with most creative projects, there are technical difficulties. The major one is that the Apple Experts have been unable, as yet, to get extra music loops to load onto my GarageBand program. Trying, has consumed hours of my time and theirs. Still, God, I am grateful that paying a one-time fee enables me, for three years, to call for help.

Oops! A Nudge! Yes, You are reminding me that — except for Apple — I am not good at asking for help. Dang. Somewhere deep inside lies a Subprogram that believes I should be able to do everything without asking for help. . . . As I typed that just now I snorted! How STUPID! But, the doggone thing is hiding out of reach!

Oh! Yes, You are right, God. I CAN ask You to help me get rid of that dysfunctional sub-program. So I’m doing that now! And, now that I think of it: There are lots of dysfunctional subprograms I would like to get rid of. It would be wonderful to be able just ask You to clean them all out, all at once. But, sigh, I am pretty sure that I am supposed to ask for each one specifically.

More than that, God, I have to be willing to change and grow. I have to be willing to do the hard and (I fear) tedious work of building new habits and patterns. Please!  Help me with that.

Story teller,
