Do you have a disciplined back up routine for your computer? Important files?
I read under another entry a comment from a reader whose mother has recently passed away. Her computer acquired a nasty virus and she almost lost all the photos of her mother in her last months of life.
It sends a shiver up my spine just thinking of the sorrow that would have caused.
Since much of our lives has now gone digital, make back ups of things. If you burn things onto DVDs and keep them in a safe place or if you have an external hard drive or if you send files to an off site server or cloud… whatever… I urge you warmly to develop a disciplined routine of backing up your important files.
I am sure many of you have your own nightmare stories or near disaster tales or happy bullet dodge anecdotes.
Finally, remember that we cannot have final trust in any created thing. All created things and people can be lost in the wink of an eye. Only God, who is eternal, is worthy of the throne of our heart.
