Dear Web friends,
Although we have never met I value your visit. This site is a joy to me because I am able to share my pictures, and I love taking photographs. I used to use my phone as it has a big screen, but my tablet has a bigger screen and I so I take picture after picture. Then I go through them and put on the frame. It really makes them look good. I do have a camera, but the pictures look so tiny, I don't use it much. Of course they come out well, but you have to wait until they are downloaded. I like to see them straight away.
Putting the pictures on this site is usually a pleasure, but sometimes down-loading them takes ages. Earlier this week, when I did a recommended backup, I lost all the indentation. This mean every drop-down became a heading at the top. Oh no!
I phoned the web-builder and the young man suggested reverting to the backup saved seven hours earlier. I had not been working for seven hours straight, but only an hour and a half. Of course on computer you would normally save more often, but the web-builder does an automatic save and I did not realise it had been that long before. Anyway, this was his only suggestion, so I lost all my work and began again.
An hour later, I did another backup and guess what? It happened again. Half an hour later I saved and it was okay, but in another half hour, it happened again! Yes, I lost my work four times.
The next young man suggested something different -- re-indent them all. It took a while, but at least I did not lose my work. I then published it and did not do a backup. I have other websites and the automatic backups are sufficient. To backup was suggested because once before I lost the navigation bar. It was also suggested perhaps I had reached my limit. Oh no. Yes, I know pictures take a lot of space, but I doubt if this will prove true. However, until that time, you and I can continue to enjoy God's creation in beauty and be comforted.
I thank the Lord for His patience. Although I was disappointed, I was not angry or frustrated each time. I just began again. This is not the 'natural man', but the grace of God. I praise Him because I know the counsel I give you in these pages works.
Wait on the Lord; be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord. Psalm 27:14. Wait and do what you can do, and He will bring it to pass. He will strengthen your heart and encourage you.
In the end I had to take my computer to the computer shop before I went away for a few days. On my return I was told it was like an old car that had been fixed beyond its capacity and I needed a new computer.
Oh! How much? How long will it take?
At this moment, I am waiting for the day --- Wednesday. I am working on my laptop, but it is difficult as most things needed are on my PC. I have been checking each page and correcting spelling mistakes and other inconsistencies. Hopefully I have found them all. Putting music on the site is a continual round of searching, downloading, and hoping it will last long enough for the page. Music is nice and I am grateful for the suggestion.
Dear One, may God bless you during this holiday season, whether you see it as festive or spiritual. Enjoy it.
