God with Us
While technology opens many doors a slight technical snaffoo can completely derail our attempts to use our equipment. Face it, there are not too many technical difficulties one can encounter with a pencil and a paint brush! And if you do encounter a problem, they are the type of issues that we can deal with using our common sense. When a tablet malfunctions, unless you are a genius engineer, there is very little we can do about it... we are helpless. We are dependent.
So it is we are forced to deal in extremes...either the sky is the limit---or you are completely shut down....I'm so frustrated by this pen issue, it makes me want to attempt to revert to manual methods of art making. However my disease prevents that from working also. My hands just will not cooperate with a brush and pen and paint.
So I"m screwed...
...Dependent on an answer from the help desk at Adesso.
It just gets me thinking about dependance and helplessness. None of us like to be helpless or dependent on something to function in order for us to be effective at doing what we need or want to do. I was thinking about how God, was totally in control of every aspect --of himself and of his creation. If he wanted to flood the earth, he could; to send a plague:done! If he wanted to fly from one corner of the earth to the opposite side, or to another galaxy....just think the thought and he was there!
WE are dependent. We came into the world via the same helpless manner. He wanted to be one of us. To know our frustrations... to share our dependance.
Emmanuel. God with us.
