Most of you who know me well understand that I don't sit still. I'm a fidgeter. When I'm writing, I fidget with the capslock button because I like to watch the light go on and off. Even in composing of these few sentences I've played with it three times. Every time I pause, I hit "CAPSLOCK, CAPSLOCK, CAPSLOCK" until I have the words to continue my thought. Sometimes I even play while I'm in the middle of a word, thinking about spelling. I choose capslock because it doesn't do anything, hitting "SHIFT, SHIFT, SHIFT" or "TAB, TAB, TAB" doesn't quite have the same effect. It's really easy to turn capslock off and I normally don't have to retype more than a few letters. (I just did it again, "CAPSLOCK, CAPSLOCK, CAPSLOCK.") My other habit is worse.

When I'm reading or editing, I like to click the mouse of my laptop repeatedly. This means I highlight the word, the sentences, and then the entire document. I was staring at words, oblivious to the fact that I was highlighting words, sentences, paragraphs, etc. I finally decided how I wanted to rephrase a sentence, so I hit, "Delete" and there it went. All 55 pages. Gone. Vanished. Blank.

That's what God does. He highlights our entire life and in one foul swoop deletes it all and replaces it with Himself. He wipes our slate clean.

Don't worry, I was able to undo my mistake with the wonderful "Control Z" but I don't understand why you would want to do that in real life. Let God delete your sin, your imperfections, your failures. Let Him replace them with His plan, His purpose, His perfection.

Does that make sense? (CAPS, CAPS, CAPS).

PS: Allyson just appeared in my room and threw me a gold fish. I caught it! And ate it. Without washing my hands! She told me I had to put that in my blog.
