It turns out that although all the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put Humpty Dumpty together again, the people at the Apple store could.
Let's just say they were very kind and gracious to me when I needed it most.
My new iPad...
I have come to realize that events that happen in my day-to-day life reflect what God is showing me in my spiritual life. I messed up with my iPad, and I got a second chance. I mess up with God, and he gives me a second chance- every single day.
These past couple of years I have felt at times that my life was cracked, shattered and falling apart, just like the nursery rhyme (and my iPad) I learned as a child. However, it's those moments when I hear God's voice and feel his presence, even if I don't want it at the time. He is with me, beside me, and sometimes dragging me forward, rebuilding and creating something new.
Just when I think He's not there, God shows up and He doesn't disappoint. After a difficult year, I am able to see the times when He carried me so I could see the light. The light is the blessings we are given, even when we don't deserve them.
So today I am counting my blessings and loving my second chance- with my iPad and God.
And in case you are wondering, that wallpaper is an actual photo I took from our balcony. A Maui sunset, a blessing indeed.
