we have a car!!
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,
