earthly things

6:30 AM. That's when my day started yesterday, and it started horrible. I had just got home from dropping Taylor off from work when it all happened. I had just made myself a piping hot fresh cup of coffee and I was sitting down to my laptop (Taylors laptop) to do my quiet time/bible study. I had just set my coffee down when my hand crossed over it spilling the contents of the cup ALL over my laptop and keyboard. I'm not exaggerating at all here when I say it looked as if I had deliberately poured the whole cup over it. I then proceeded to try and make amends, turning it over, turning it off, blow drying, taking the battery out... I ended up leaving it in a large trash bag full of rice until my husband could get home to make it better. After a long day of tears Taylor finally comes home at 7pm to actually take the battery out (I had done it incorrectly) and put it back it and the computer powers itself back up. It was a miracle and my husband is amazing. 
Between 7-7pm though I am not proud of how I acted, yes it is one of the most expensive items I own and it would have been terrible to lose it but there is another part of the story I've left out, I had another laptop that was a little older but works just fine. 

I realized, although I'm fairly sure I failed, that I have put so much into this laptop (a thing of this world). I was so mad and upset about my precious laptop. I realized that I put my treasures into this world. It has caused me to repent and be quite embarrassed about it too.  I am just thankful for a God who loves and forgives even though I am a sinner and I don't deserve it, even when I put laptops before him. 

My handsome amazing husband who while all this was going on was so nice and sweet to me. He made me feel so much better and, despite it being his computer, never got mad once. He just said,"We'll figure it out, if we have to get a new one we will." He is my rock on this earth and I just can't imagine being without him.
