Humility and Hope

view of rain over the oceanGood Evening, God!

The scripture verse for today was from Proverbs 22:4 NIV “Humility is the fear of the Lord; its wages are riches and honor and life.”

Oh Boy did I get plunged into humility today as I worked on building structure in my life.  My goal was to be able to see a history of exercise I did (especially swimming) from my iWatch.  I called Apple and got a young woman who had been trained . . . but didn’t have her own iWatch.  And I guess she was relieved when I suggested maybe she could pass me over to a senior iWatch person.  Jamie did have an iWatch and quickly explained I could find this information by tapping the History tab in the Activities app.

Done said I . . . totally incorrectly . . .and hung up.  Then I went to my Watch app on my iPhone and tapped on Activities and searched in vain for the History tab.  Big misunderstanding! Jamie was talking about a NEW APP called Activities!  Not the section called Activities in my Watch app.  I guess I shouldn’t have hung up so soon . . .

But after five or six or seven searches on Google I finally understood!  And sure enough after I downloaded the new Activities app — there was the History Tab! DUH!!!

So humility — or an accurate view of reality — swept over me.  The hope came a bit later. I realized that I CAN build structure.  The realization flowed over me that HEY, I can be Organized!  It just takes Time and Effort.  And for the next few days I have both.

And Centering more often today has helped with Humility (known as perspective!) and also with Hope.  I am grateful for both!
