Life is Like Microsoft Word

I have thank G-d that He created an "Edit, Undo" feature in His app called Life.

I think its less Edit, Undo and more of a Refresh button

I agree with both, those features exsist and Baruch Hashem for that! We as human beings, and Yidden, even have a "Match Destination Formatting". (we strive to utilize that one our whole lives, though.)

I haven't heard of that one. What's match destination formatting?

SaraE said...

When you copy-paste from a different source (say, a web page), a little clipboard icon appears, and if you click on it, it gives the option to 'match destination formatting.' This means you can have the pasted text match the font and size of the Word document.
I think I was (obscurely) referencing the idea that in our trying to achieve shleimus, we are 'formatting' ourselves to match our ultimate destination.

That's awesome. Halevai!

As Jew said about "Refresh" though, I think that function does come through sleep. It's hard to feel that each moment is a new chance and a new day. But when one wakes up after a night's sleep, it does give a person the "refreshing" feeling that it is a new chance.

Great ideas.

More like OpenOffice than Microsoft Word, though - since G-d doesn't ask you to pay for it!
