de·lete  [di-leet] –verb (used with object), to strike out or remove (something written or printed); cancel; erase; expunge; to destroy.

Spent an hour writing out a pretty vulnerable story for this blog. I was in the zone; writing; thinking; laughing; listening to a great Classic Rock play list; enjoying God and the blustery fall afternoon.
 
I paused to decide on a word choice… “euphoric” or “exuberant” when my Twist-of-Fate-largeplaylist hit Free Bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd (if you’re wondering, the long version… a classic!)… well, I zoned out unknowingly playing my keyboard like a piano.

At some point, probably during the crescendo guitar solo, I hit the right combination of keys and … “puff”.

I deleted my blog.

“NO”!!! (You certainly know the feeling… right?)

Immediately I prayed; asking God to save all my labor; bound the thief; and moved into a listening mode as I tried everything to retrieve a sure source of blessing/encouragement for every reader.

Nada. Gone. Kaputz.

Is this how a nuclear war starts… some night crew stiff starts rockin to a tune, inadvertently hits a button or two and the southern hemisphere is deleted?

Agitated I headed to the kitchen for some relief. A handful of M&M’s.

Pondered the sovereignty of God, spiritual warfare and the principle of reaping and sowing… wondering if God was in this.

Heading back to my office God spoke. Sensing his presence, smile and laughter I heard him say, “Give it [my blog topic] some more thought…” .

That’s all I needed.

So I sat back down at my desk, cranked Free Bird again, and scribbled out these few thoughts. – Craig
