GPS

This year I received a Global Positioning System (GPS) as a Christmas gift from Wonderful Husband.

I am not a tech-savvy person. I am a geographically-challenged person.

The first time I spread my wings and moved from Dallas to San Angelo, Texas, I tried to read a map to find my way to my new job. I took every wrong turn possible and a 10 minute commute turned into a 30 minute adventure. (It would have been longer but San Angelo in 1980 was a small town).

I have fortunately been married to my map-reading, directionally-accurate Wonderful Husband for 27 years. He would look at a map then give me directions that I could write down in "layman's terms" (right on this street, left onto that street) and voila! I could travel from Point A to Point B (and back to Point A of course).

So years later, there was MapQuest where I could type in Point A and Point B and print a map (useless to me) and also the written directions. Handy dandy! Yet after a few times of doing MapQuest myself, I started asking Wonderful Husband to do it for me.

And now I've been gifted with a GPS. Now I wonder if this gift was for me....or really for him.....Ha!

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:5-6
