I remember the first time I heard about the DVR.
It seemed hard to believe that you could rewind a tv show you were watching.
Then I learned you could pause and save permanently.
Whoever figured this out is a genius.
I loved the concept, but fearing the cost, I didn’t get one right away.
Still, I was in awe of its power.
I think we finally gave-in the last time the Patriots made the Super Bowl–during their near perfect season.
(Yes, a sore subject …I want a grandson, but don’t name him Eli.)
Last night something occurred to me that I have to share.
My wife and I were getting ready to watch American Idol.
Crossroads and obstacles in the world were swirling around in my head.
(I also dislike commercials, unless they include the AFLAC Duck with Gilbert Godfrey. Otherwise I fast forward at 4x speed.)
I asked Natalie if we could DVR the program and pray together before starting to watch.
That way we could approach the throne, pray for our children and the chaos everywhere, cheer for Stefano and James, and still not have to watch the ads.
It was a real eureka moment for me.
I can’t speak for my wife, but I can say, what better way to spend an evening as a couple.
There we were, in the comfort of our living room, marching around the walls of Jericho, holding up the Ark of the Covenant.
We may not see it happen, but the Lord promised He would knock down the walls if we obey.
That’s our faith.
I’m still in awe of its power.
Let’s do this again my dear.
Two couch potatoes, mashed together, shall become one….or something like that.
As for American Idol…lets just say, we were the Americans and the show was in idle.
Thank you DVR.
