A New Car and Eleven Hundred Dollars.

Today is Wednesday, May 27, 2009.  The middle of the week.  Hump day.  The week is only half over and so far I’ve had quite a week.  Monday was the day I planned to go play black jack at one of the casinos in Oklahoma but got side tracked before I left.  My son called me and asked me to stop by his house before I went, so I did.  What a wonderful surprise he had for me. 

He had just purchased a new car for his wife and asked me if I wanted her old one.  You bet I did!  It is a white, 2006 Kia Sedona Mini van, with tan leather interior and only 40,000 miles on it.  It’s beautiful.  Woo Hoo.

Now, let me tell you about my old car.  It was a tan 2002, Pontiac, Bonneville sedan and I called it “God’s car” because it was given to me, brand new with 60 miles on it.  I got to pick it out.  I’ll write a story at a later date explaining why I called it “God’s car” but for now I will shorten the story and say it was a result of a prayer.  It ended its days with me Monday with 182,000 miles on it.  This car made many prayer trips across the United States before it got weary.  It needed new tires, new brakes and only three of the power windows were still working, but the motor ran great.  I was praying Sunday night about the repairs that the car needed because they were out of my budget.  I reminded God that this was His car that He had given me and now it needed repairs that I couldn’t afford.  I had some extra money that my son had given me ($100) but not enough for car repairs so I decided to take the money and go play black jack and see if I could run it up into more than the hundred.  I am pretty lucky, or maybe I should say I’m very blessed.  God has always been good to me. The next day, Monday, is when my son gave me my new car (new to me and newer than the 2002 Bonneville) and a full tank of gas and a year of paid up insurance.  Another “God’s car”.  Woo Hoo. 

I still had the hundred dollars and now a full tank of gas so I went to Oklahoma as planned and I came home with Eleven hundred dollars that I didn’t have before.  Woo Hoo.

I can hardly wait to see what the end of the week brings.  The first half of this week has really been a good one.
