Saving “Private Boo”

Dear Reader:

God does have a sense of humor…as I was scrolling through some old documents in “Old Faithful” … I came across this humorous piece of a revised “tech psalm.” I looked up and winked “Good one God!”


“The Lord is my programmer,

I shall not crash.

He installed His software on the hard disk of my heart;

all of His commands are user-friendly.

His directory guides me to the right choices

For His namesake

Even though I scroll through the problems of life,

I will fear no bugs, for He is my backup.

His password protects me.

He prepares a menu before me in the presence of my enemies.

His help is only a keystroke away.

Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life,

And my files will be merged with His and saved forever.”

(Reverend Ken Fox)

I needed that and I think God knew it too! I have prayed hard to Him, especially this past week!

I have prayed to God for guidance …to guide my finger tips across the new keys without losing the whole document -by hitting the really wrong key, to show me understanding…as I plow through new jargon and procedures, and most of all for patience…and then more patience…and more patience, etc.

So until tomorrow…

God please hold my hand through this challenging time and let me emerge a more faithful follower of your love!

And speaking of my favorites, let’s go to the garden and gifts from friends (Honey):

Saving Ms. Boo requires two cookies – one for each hand!

About Becky Dingle

I was born a Tarheel but ended up a Sandlapper. My grandparents were cotton farmers in Laurens, South Carolina and it was in my grandmother’s house that my love of storytelling began beside an old Franklin stove. When I graduated from Laurens High School, I attended Erskine College (Due West of what?) and would later get my Masters Degree in Education/Social Studies from Charleston Southern. I am presently an adjunct professor/clinical supervisor at CSU and have also taught at the College of Charleston. For 28 years I taught Social Studies through storytelling. My philosophy matched Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Today I still spread this message through workshops and presentations throughout the state. The secret of success in teaching social studies is always in the story. I want to keep learning and being surprised by life…it is the greatest teacher. Like Kermit said, “When you’re green you grow, when you’re ripe you rot.”
