A Mini-Post

we have a car!!
Sort of.
The dealership is clearing up an issue we wanted addressed, so let's call it a pending sale.
12 hours of a car shopping, people.
Ask me if I was on the verge of coming unglued.
Good thing we'd just started Mercy Triumphs,
'cause I kept getting nailed by that "Consider it joy when you face trial of many kinds" part.
Big Red and I talked about things to consider with joy:
1.He's still alive and uninjured. (The Big One.)
2.Though we lost some money (of course), we can't say we were treated unfairly by our insurance.
3.We've found a car that has fewer miles, is a couple of years newer, and gets better gas mileage than the one that was crushed.  We have peace that this car represents the best stewardship of what God has provided.
4. The car salesman said we were a "great couple" and was impressed we'd been married over 18 years.  ;)
Today I refuse to leave my house, and instead of coming unglued, I'm going to use some glue.  
Today I shall do crafts.
And not talk about cars.
Be blessed today,


  1. haha - you always make me smile!!

    Love the joy perspective! In all things we are to be thankful!! God works the best when we are up against adversity!

    Have a great day enjoy crafting!

  2. Hope your sticking is therapeutic! What a story.
    Praying that the new car feels like a friend very quickly.

  3. As Larry the Cableguy would say, "Now that was funny, I don't care who you are."
    I write and maintain a blog which I have entitled “Accordingtothebook” and I’d like to invite you to follow it. I’m your newest follower.

  4. We will expect pictures of all your glueing efforts! Congrats on the car. I HATE car trading. HATE IT!!

  5. I love that . . . " I'm going to use some glue instead of coming unglued." that needs to be a t-shirt.
