Ok, I admit it. My smart phone is officially smarter than I am. I am technologically challenged!
I dropped my phone and cracked the screen. I have insurance on it, so I went online and successfully filed a claim. I received my replacement phone promptly in the mail. That was not the problem. The problem is totally user error.
To tranafer all my contacts, my blog, my photos, my data, my apps, basically my life, is more than this girl can handle.
I tried. I failed.
I called in the troops for backup assistance. My daughter’s boyfriend has a Samsung. He is young. He is smart. He can outsmart a smart phone. He was able to get everything up and running but my photos. And trust me, I have the photos! I write and illustrate a blog every day. I have children. And grandchildren. There are pictures!!!!
Tomorrow my plans are to head straight to the Verizon store after work to see if the experts can help.
Wait a minute!
Who am I calling the expert here? A man or woman in a Polo embroldered with the Verizon logo?
Why not call the true expert?
I choose to call in Jesus. No smart phone needed for that call. A little prayer is always heard and answered any time of day. Now that’s some pretty powerful customer service! What other customer service desk is open 24/7 to assist me, not just with my smart phone, but with all of life’s circumstances? Who made me and my smart phone any way for that matter?
And really? It’s a phone! A mere tool to assist me in making my life more manageable. If I have grown that reliant on a piece of technology, I know just what I need to be giving up for lent this year.
My life is not held within the plastic casings of a mere cell phone. It is much greater. God created a purpose in me that I am to live out each day with or without my cell phone.
I pray that you join me in putting our priorities in perspective. Realizing the true importance of man made tools in our lives. Realizing what truly is important in our lives. Realizing who we truly can call on.
