I was reading a book on my iPad and quite enjoying the story. Although I usually have the iPad in its cover, this particular day I did not. Of course, that is the day I dropped it. At first, I was relieved, no cracked screen but there were a few lines displayed on the left side of the screen – nothing a turn off and back on would not fix, surely? Far from it, a turn off and on resulted in more lines on the left side with the addition of lines along the bottom of the screen. Although I can still use the iPad for some things, reading a book is not one of them!
The lesson I learned, too late I am afraid, is always have the cover on my iPad. To decrease the chances of anything going wrong, take the obvious precautions that are available. That not only applies to technical devices, but to all of life. We have, for our safety, an amazing God who watches over us. His invitation is for all – to accept it is to have a meaningful and fulfilling life, a life with the best cover available.
Heavenly Father, thank you for the protection and surety you offer us. Help us Lord to clearly see the path to you. Amen
