Apparently, it was new technology for her and she was really struggling. I just happened to be there for her conversation with the support staff as she went over the process step by step. She wanted to make sure that she had done everything right and that the recipient would get her message.
I would have thought by now everyone would know how to send a message, but apparently not. At her age, maybe she had never used the technology before; who am I to judge? Finally she seemed to get it right, so she paid for her stamp, stuck it on the envelope and dropped her letter in the slot. It happened the last time I was at the post office.
It’s amazing how something that seems so simple can be complex if you’ve never done it before, and it seemed as if this young lady had never “mailed” a letter before.
Sometimes we are quick to tell someone, “Just pray about it.” But if they’ve never done it before – regardless of their age – the process can seem daunting. So instead of suggesting that they just pray about it, maybe we should offer to pray for them so they can see how it’s done.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
