God’s Gift of a Google Cr-48 Chrome Notebook

A couple of weeks ago, I received a message from my wife while I was at work. It said, “What the heck?!? You just got something from Chrome. Do you know anything about that?”

When I came home, I found a strange box, and, inside, a brand new (and very free) Google Chrome Cr-48 — I had been selected for the Chrome OS Pilot Program. The idea behind Chrome OS (Operating System) is that those who do most of their computing online–from “the cloud”– could actually have computers that run entirely from the web. If you use a lot of online applications–for example, Google Docs, an online calendar, social networking sites, online photo albums and photo editing, etc.–I encourage you to check out the Pilot Program — it only takes 15 minutes to apply.

This notebook came at an opportune time for our family, as our prior laptop had been taken out by a virus. It serves as a reminder of God’s constant provision for us — every breath we take, every meal we eat, every task we undertake: all of these are from Him. And, infinitely greater, the basis of our relationship with him–Jesus Christ–is his exorbitant expenditure to provide eternal life for us, now and forever. May we give thanks to God in all things.
