There are many times when you just have to accept facts and deal with the emotions and the frustrations. I was dealing with the fact that the Jeep was stolen and to just go on with things. We had taken a hit financially with the cost of getting that Jeep fixed a few weeks before for Shalisha. The bill on the credit card would be due in a few weeks. It was almost $1,000.
We were thinking of selling the Sebring and even had it listed on a trading post to pay the bill, but at the same time we also put Nate's old Lemans convertible for sale. We had to move the Lemans out of our life. We brought it down from MI when we moved to Kentucky in 2001. There was a bigger push to sell this because it had to be moved anyway. It was being stored in Darlene's garage. When she passed away, camp decided to sell that house.
The 1969 Lemans sold quickly for 1,500. The bill was paid. Shortly after this the jeep was found! Shalisha got a letter from the police that it was in a tow yard. Apparently who ever took it couldn't get it started again and left it. (That's just what we were praying would happen.) We told Shalisha that the jeep wouldn't be good to keep around the college after it had been stolen once...and we were just tired of dealing with the jeep's alarm issue making it fail to start. She opted for the Sebring.
We took the Sebring to get a couple new tires and other fixes totaling about $500. All I can say is God is good. It all worked out and things were paid for. Now we have a jeep to sell which will pay for the tow yard visit, and Shalisha has a better car to drive. Hopefully our car issues will be done for awhile.
Here is the chorus of a song that I just finished writing I'll post the rest soon:
There's Joy, There's Joy, you're anointing my soul,
Like a cup overflowing, on and on it goes.
Yes, goodness and mercy, all my days, they follow me,
And someday I'll dwell with Jesus
My forever, perfect destiny.
From Psalm 23... "You anoint my head with oil, my cup runs over. Surely, goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever."
