the sun came out

July 9, 2006

Seven hours ago I was sitting at my parents’ house crying to my dad about how overwhelmed and frustrated I was. My car decided to stop starting Friday night before work. Since then I’ve gotten rides and borrowed cars to get to and from but was concerned about how long this could go on. I can’t afford to call in for work and can’t have people hauling me around. On Friday I found a car that was exactly what I wanted but was in Miami. I have a friend who is a mechanic down there who I was hoping would check it out for me but when I called the seller he had three people looking at it that night. Long story short, the guy got offered a lot less than he wanted, I told him that if he waited until tonight when Simon could look at it, and he gave his approval, then I’d pay him more for it. So he waited, Simon saw it, he liked it, I like it, I’m happy, I’m getting a car. Hopefully I can get all the paperwork done tomorrow morning, fly down there with Tanya tomorrow afternoon and drive it home. Oh yeah, and I was supposed to work tonight/tomorrow morning and Tuesday all day and wasn’t sure how I was going to do all that work and get the car as well. I put in to swap Tuesday’s trip for something next week (the beauty of having a line) but up until late this afternoon it hadn’t even been looked at yet. After being sick this week and doing two naps already I was exhausted today and tonight’s nap was going to be really rough. As I was driving home from church tonight scheduling called me to say my trip tonight was canceled! That in itself made me really happy. Then I got home and checked online and they had approved my swap. Shortly after that I found out about the car and everything has just fallen into place within about an hour. I think this story is kind of jumbled but I’m really happy about it and tired all at the same time so my writing skills aren’t my priority.

I’m going to bed so I can get a whole night’s sleep in my very own bed. Yummy. You’ll never know how much you like your own bed until you only get to sleep in it half the time. My life isn’t perfect, but I know God is in control of things. Yesterday when I was worrying and wondering if I should really pursue this car in Miami my dad prayed with me on the phone and I had to remember that none of this is in my hands anyway. If the Lord wanted me to have that car He would work out the details that were too big for me. And if it wasn’t the right one for me then it wouldn’t happen and there would be a better one. I don’t know why He is so good to me. I definitely don’t deserve it. In other areas, I’m learning to do something I’ve never had to do before. It’s not easy at all, but I believe it will be worth it.
