God is good...even in these difficult times. Lord knows I need His mercy today and some of your prayers if you should venture over here today.
Last night I dropped my work laptop and not only did the power cord break within the computer, I now have lines all over the screen. Several issues now arise. I am at the mercy of our IT department to come to my rescue....I haven't heard from them yet this morning. All my files I need, especially for the conference I am coordinating next week to train nurses in being parish nurses is on this machine. I had not downloaded anything to my thumb drive yet. I was originally denied a part-time contract here at the college-the new dean came back, not only with a part-time contract but more $$ than I had asked for (did I say God is good?) but now that I am going part time, they could feasibly say no to another lap top. I live on that thing!!
So I am placing this in God's hands and prayer. I will accept whatever comes my way but I am sitting at my desk frozen, unable to complete anything!! IT just call. Most likely the college will require me to pay the damages as it is not covered under their contract. They most likely will not replace this computer with a desk top either because of budget. I do not have the finances!! I NEED PRAYER LADIES!!!
My husband visited my blogs this morning. He commented that everything I seem to be studying God seems to really be working in my life and trying to fine tune it-such as loving my kids fully from Sundays post. It has been a challenge. So he asked me if I might try studying something like "How to live with too much money" and maybe God would swing that by our way. I thought that was too funny! Do you know any good studies on how to live with too much money?!?!?!? It's a thought. Anything is possible with God!!
Pray for my situation!! Finances...my laptop...oh my work files......I need my work files......

Update--keep the prayers coming. I have an older laptop on loan from IT and my files have been transfered. God is good. I will probably find out next week if I have to pay for the damage and repairs. I can be like another professor who did the same thing to his computer and refuse but he has been without a computer from the college sense. You know, it has crossed my mind that this is a "God-thing"...maybe He is saying I rely on that stupid machine too much and I need to break away from it....maybe....please pray. Thank you.
