God Bless My Computer

I finally finished scoring assessments yesterday. Woo-hoo! But I missed my blogging buddies.

I realized I have come to rely on your friendship and humor and wisdom and comments. I pray for you nightly and visit you daily. Thanks for being there and for making my life - as a person and as a writer - so much better.

I'll be catching up on all of your blogs, I promise.

God Bless My Computer

Every evening
As I'm laying here in bed
This tiny little prayer
Keeps running through my head

God bless my mom and dad
And bless my little pup
And look out for my brother
When things aren't looking up

And God, there's one more thing
I wish that you could do
Hope you don't mind me asking
But please bless my computer too?

Now I know that it's not normal
To bless a mother board
But just listen for a second
While I explain to you 'My Lord'

You see, that little metal box
Holds more to me than odds and ends
Inside those small compartments
Rest a hundred of my 'BEST FRIENDS'

Some it's true I've never seen
And most I've never met
We've never exchanged hugs
Or shared a meal as yet....

I know for sure they like me
By the kindness that they give
And this little scrap of metal
Is how I travel to where they live

By faith is how I know them
Much the same as I know you
I share in what life brings them
And from that our friendship grew

"PLEASE" Take an extra minute
From your duties up above
To bless this scrap of metal
That is filled with so much love!

I love you guys!

Love the poem and it so fits me. lol. I had my coworker giving me weird looks the other day when I cursed at my work computer, and then patted my baby netbook sitting beside it and said, "Not you. You're a good little computer." ;-)

Missed having you come around and I totally relate, if something happened to my computer, I'd die (or at the least be very upset).
