So? I am really going to do this huh? A whole week with out my journal? lol and with out chat? YES, Mary you can do it. You can do all things threw Christ. Right! (hoping I will make it back for the B2B chat lol)
Before I go.. I see that I have negletcted to write about a big blessing my family recived Sunday. It is almost embarassing but I have to give the Lord priase or the rocks will cry out.
Ofcourse there is a background story lol so here we go..
Our plates was up in July for our only working car and it needed some work before we thought it would pass emissions and saftey. So we had it in the shop and all that. One of our pastors let us use his full size van this month. Oh it has been so nice. We fit nicely in it lol. but I am not so used to driving something THAT big. Anyways, things come up and we ran out of the money we thought we would have to do the plates, plus pay the back taxes, and bring our ins. current. So the car has just been sitting there, but we perfectly indend on getting it renewed. We had planned on doing it this week. I was suposed to make all those calls while Josh was gone but never could seem to get it all together.
We kinda knew that our car is a junker lol and probly wouldn't pass anyways but we had plans. Ok so here is God's blessings.. Some one donated a '95 Arostar to our church to give to us! I am so blown away! I have been missing my van so badly and wishing we had a second car so I could do my stuff during the day and not be stuck home till Josh got home. It is a pain to do shopping at 4 just before dinner time! But this van is even more than I could expect! It has AIR CONDITION! IT HAS AIR BAGS! IT HAS TWO CHILD SEATS BUILT IN!! WE ALL FIT AND THEN SOME!!! Thank you Lord!!
Yesterday we did get ins. online lol so that is settled, but ouch. And today Josh did take our old car to get the saftey and emmisions. It passed saftey but flunked the other one! gurr... And Josh did mentchen that the van may need to get some work to the power steering, but still drivable! So if anything we will have one car that works. lol..
God always amazes me. Even before I can ask he provides for my family. We are never in want or need for the important things. Speaking of.. talking with Josh's mom the other day she said she told a dentist at her church about my situation and he said when we come over there for the family reunion that he could give me a look and see what he could do and work out!!! NOW that would be awsome! Because I did not see how God was going to work that out, but he always has a plan. Just give it over to him and rest.
Speaking of rest.. I am officaly off giving my journal one. Leaving you with a song I heard today in the van (has am and fm and a tape player!)
Howie Day: Collide
The dawn is breaking
A light shining through
You're barely waking
And I'm tangled up in you
Yeah I'm open, you're closed
Where I follow, you'll go
I worry I won't see your face light up again
Even the best fall down sometimes Even the wrong words seem to rhyme Out of the doubt that fills my mind I somehow find, you and I collide
I'm quiet, you know
You make a first impression
I've found I'm scared to know
I'm always on your mind
Even the best fall down sometimes Even the stars refuse to shine Out of the back you fall in time I somehow find, you and I collide
Don't stop here
I've lost my place
I'm close behind
Even the best fall down sometimes Even the wrong words seem to rhyme Out of the doubt that fills your mind You finally find, you and I collide
You finally find You and I collide
You finally find You and I collide
