Alice at Hello, My Name Is Alice tagged me for a meme in which we show what’s on our desktop on our computer. I usually have a flower, often a photo from my pink rose bush. But one day looking at Snapshots of Joy (whose graphics I love — beautiful paintings or photos with quotes or Scripture) I saw she had some desktop wallpaper, and I loved this one:
If you can’t read the quote, it says:
“If I did not see the Lord kept watch over the ship, I should long since abandoned the helm. But I see Him! Through the storm, strengthening the tackling, handling the yards, spreading the sails — aye, more, commanding the very winds! Should I not be a coward if I abandoned my post? Let Him carry us forward, let Him hasten or delay, we will fear nothing.
– Martin Luther”
Here’s how you play:
A. Upon receiving this tag, immediately perform a screen capture of your desktop. It is best that no icons be deleted before the screen capture so as to add to the element of fun. You can do a screen capture by going to your desktop and pressing the Print Scrn key (located on the right side of the F12 key). Open a graphics program (like Picture Manager, Paint, or Photoshop) and do a Paste (CTRL + V).If you wish, you can “edit” the image, before saving it.
B. Post the picture in your blog. You can also give a short explanation on the look of your desktop just below it if you want. You can explain why you preferred such look or why is it full of icons. Things like that.
C. Tag five of your friends and ask them to give you a Free View of their desktop as well.
D. Add your name to this list of Free Viewers with a link pointing directly to your Desktop Free View post to promote it to succeeding participants.
