I am finally able to make music print. Well not me personally – my computer actually is doing the work – with a little help from the printer. I am just supervising the project.
It is AMAZING what happens when two components actually “make nice” and play together. And they said it COULD NOT be done. Well folks – I’m living proof that THEY – (whoever they are) were WRONG.
We were beginning to think that my digital piano was FEMALE and my computer was MALE. And in that – was the whole problem – lack of communication. But I have since learned that this is silly – and even components – like men and women can communicate – at least sometimes.
Yup – the right software – the right connection and mediator (the midi cord) and I was in business!
I wish relationship problems with people could be solved so easily. Just get the right program – get on the same page – make the proper adjustments – allow for personality – add a heaping dose of common sense and lots of love – lose the attitude – and self righteous judgmental spirit – and just simply FIX the issue – once and for all. If only.
I find myself thinking, “How long Oh Lord”. Because I am not patient by nature – it is terribly hard for me to wait it out. But I have learned something – it is when things are hard and we go through rough patches – that’s when we really grow – and more importantly the deep work in our heart and lives becomes visible.
So I would NOT trade away my difficult moments – (and many more than just moments) because I know He is working in me to produce something through the pain – through the loss – through the struggle. And I find myself smiling at the irony of life. And at the timing of circumstances in my own life. The choices I have made – the hand of God on my life even through those choices – and the people I still miss today.
Take heart my friend – if you are going through something today. Know that something is being produced in your life and heart – and you are being prepared for something to come. I absolutely believe that – with all of my heart. Take a moment to smile and remember how valuable you are – and how much you are loved.
