praying...

for guidance this morning...

we have some major problems going on here...

and I am searching for answers on which way to go...

before things happened, DH and I got a small trip in to the state park 3 miles north of town...

and the wind was blowing so much the water was choppy...

Craig worked yesterday afternoon and was bringing home pizza for supper...

when he went to back out of the parking place, the truck wouldn't move...

so he called us and we went after him...

DH did get it moved to the park out of the way from the strip mall...

called a tow service and they couldn't get to it until this morning...

all the overtime money put back for winter will soon be gone...

but I need to know who and how to proceed...

and there's no time to waste...

with both guys working in different directions...

pray for DH...

we see things differently...

he sees losing ground and all the hard work going down the drain... 
he sees no Christmas...
I see being able to write a check for it and not having to finance it...
not going in the hole...
having it to do it...
that it was provided for...
ahead of time...
I see not walking...
Craig keeping his job...
pray for us...
its has to be done right the first time...
we don't have it to do over...
and we will get through this...
and it will be alright...
and there will be Christmas...

life is like a mud puddle...
you can either jump over it...
or fall in it...
I am jumping!
:)

Tete, It is so aggrevating to try to save...but the money saved helps keep your head above water. DH will realize that he was making that extra for just this very thing. Doesn't always make it any easier to take. Ted and I just keep getting our vehicles repaired....but one day, we will have to make a new purchase....that's why Ted says he's going for 300,000 miles on his truck..he has 230,000 :):)I am going to pray for all of you, because sometimes we just need extra prayers. xoxo,Susie

Glad your jumping, I seem to find myself falling into all to often still. But, I have learned many a lesson over the last 2 years. Simply...just be glad to have loved ones a roof over my head. Presents are just presents to open, but not everyone is lucky like us to have the gifts of love.
Hang in there dear friend.

We had no car for two years. It was hard being retired. My hubby is retired of course.When your retired you have only so much money. My hubby was self employed and then in 1970. The business got slower. He bult fireplaces and patio's. When your self employed it is harder. So he had to depend on a job for wages. So then he had to fold up his business. So we just went from there.So then came retirement.For him and of course he has to take me. We came to the country.

I prayed and I tell you days were frusterating after two years not having a car.

We were blessedit took about two months as our neighbours then picked us up and took us to shop for those two years and to the doctor appointments.As the friend he was working and we had to get in appointments when he was available. Other neighbours who you thought would help. Well that is a whole other story.

Our car who had all the bells and whistles and automatic everything just broke down. The door lock, the brakes, air-condition and it just went on and one. You name it. We could not fix it. I mean we just could not.


For those years my family came two hours or more to pick us up and brought us to their place on weekends.Also to Christmas and all the events. Families do.

Yet with cost of their truck and two teenagers driving cars. They had to look after themselves not trot every time for us on not special days.

So we prayed hard and so did others pray.

Then this year our car dealer phoned us where we had dealt with them many years in a town so small.As the locals mechanics. Dont want to go there. They sleep and drink and serve you when they want and oh They are something else.

So the mechanic where hubby went in town phoned us he had a car come in and see it. Fully loaded.

Bestnamed brand tires on them winter and summer.

You name it is in it.

Well the price was like. Really.
Our mouth opened wide.

An old man stopped driving and for two years it stayed in the garage of his home. People may say that is not good. Well we are driving around and it has not given us one problem.

So story is in my case. Give prayer to the Lord and leave it there.

He met us to the very end.

Why I say that.

The friends who took us everywhere.

A car ran into them and his car was totalled.

His wife was hurt her legs.She had to have rehab for months.

A man was speeding and his trailor carrying who know what. Hitched clicked off and went straight to the front of our friends car and I mean totaled it.

He has an old truck that he can get about as he is is a part time bus driver and needs to get back and forth to get the bus and get back home. So now he is looking at the same place where we got ours.

He has his name down with the same guy who phoned us.

Our car is not a large car but I being tall my legs I can stretch or sit perfect.

My sons said. Oh you guys got a steal Pop.

The Lord has blessed you over .

So I have found out. It is not in our time but in his time.

We just have to be patient if it is a long time.

We had two hard Christmas's that were hard.

We had saved too but the money went to the car for half repairs to do us them after months. It just went everything broken. So we had to get like 50 dollars for the car and the tires we sold but then that was it.

I will pray for you like everyone else will.

I got frusterated after a year so I was not a good example. We can praise the Lord in the good times but when we hit those vallies. That is hard and not good for our faith in the Lord.I felt I was not
being obedient to the Lord. As who was I to trust to even a car. The Lord.

His time not ours.

God be With You my blogger friend..

Amen, sister. You have always been a jumper. I'm with you- you have the money and don't have to borrow it -or worse- leave the truck unfixed and Craig can't get to work. It will work out- I know it will. xo Diana
