I had the chance to upgrade to Windows 8 this week. When I bought my new computer, it was part of the package. When it came out, I was all excited. I love technology, so I got it the first day it was available. Had a bunch of issues thanks to this software. There have been times when I wish I had Windows 7 back! I like it much better, because it is easier to navigate. That made me ponder as many things often do, about the merits of the old way versus the new way. I can read my Bible on my I-pad, cell phone, or computer. It has every version known to man.
But there is something special about holding the actual Bible my husband bought me 38 years ago, when I went to my first Bible study, and needed a study Bible, that is precious and real. It feels good in my hands, it knows me! It is so old, I had to have it rebound. New might be fun and exciting, but today I would like my Windows 7 back. After I am finished writing this, I will pick up my real Bible and smell the leather and feel the weight of it in my hands, and turn the pages with joy. Tonight I just want the old stuff!
