Natasha and I have been discussing technology lately.
How our age and lack of IT abilities keeps us frustrated from time to time.
Like dealing with the new WordPress block editor.
Like not being able to play TV shows on CBS All Access via the cell phone when it worked the day before.
Like taking two hours to hook up a TV monitor to a laptop that perhaps should have taken 10 minutes.
Like how technology changes at warp speed while we’re puttering along at 30 mph.
As Natasha was mired in IT frustration one day, she uttered…
And I thought to myself, “Hmmm…I wonder if there’s an app for that.”
More importantly, would the app work 100% of the time?
After all, it would be a perfect, heavenly app.
It should be able to fix anything and everything.
Unfortunately, there is no such thing.
Natasha and I research and problem-solve online, and try to follow directions, but so often get mired down in the IT gobbledygook that we might understand if we had graduated from MIT.
It really is frustrating, but somehow we get by.
There’s always a “help desk” email address (it took CBS All Access over a week to respond to my initial email by asking, “Do you still have an issue?”) or a 1-800 phone number (I wonder if CBS All Access will answer) or we simply keep trying until the Excedrin or Tylenol kicks in and we click on the right things by accident.
So, no, there is no Jesus, God app.
But we really wish there was.
We would be so very grateful to Him.
