Just when you think it can't get any worse....

It gets worse. We are officially a no-car family as of today! The Acura, our faithful car that we drove away from our wedding in, is dead. The head gasket blew. Fortunately, Mark was able to make it to the stop sign right in front of TBS this morning before it died (Thank you, Lord!)

So, the Volvo is still in the shop, the Acura is dead and not worth the $$ to have a shop fix it, Mark doesn't have the time to fix it (he could, but it's very time consuming, and guess what he doesn't have a lot of these days?)

We'll have to get a rental for a bit. Hopefully they'll be able to fix the Volvo (and we'll have the $$ to get it out of hock) by then, and with Mark's motorcycle and the warmer weather, we'll be in business, at least for awhile.

I've had a fever the past two days as well (my husband shared with me :). Yesterday was really rough, but God truly gave me the grace to make it through, and I'm feeling better today.

Whew! I praise God for His faithfulness to us. I know He's giving us all of these things at once because He loves us.

Keep me safe, O God,
for in you I take refuge.
I said to the LORD, "You are my Lord;
apart from you I have no good thing

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

Oh no! When it rains, it pours, doesn't it.

Oh NO! Well - on the up side, you won't have to insure the Acura any more. Maybe that is a savings? ;-)

I hope the Volvo is back to you very very soon and that you are feeling much better.

PS Thank you for adding me to your blog roll. :-P
