I got a phone call from my dad this morning. This used to be something that never happened but now happens on a fairly regular basis. I don't mind; I like talking to him - he's my dad. I just wish we had gotten to this place without losing Mom...
Anyway, he called to give me some news. Since Mom died we knew that we would have to sell her car. It was expensive & Dad's income has been drastically reduced. We wanted him to be able to keep the house - let's unload the car! Thus began the selling efforts. I bought a sign & we filled it out. I drove the car to work on several occasions so that it could be parked in a high traffic area. Nothing happened. We listed it on ebay. Nothing happened. We put an ad in the local paper & relisted it on ebay. Something happened.
There were two men who expressed serious interest in the car - one even went so far as to say that he would call & let Dad know when he would be there with the check! He never showed up & we definitely got no check.
The second guy was also very seriously interested right from the start. But it took him something like two whole weeks to get the deal done! He drove it. He asked to drive it again. He wasn't going in to get his loan because the loan agent he preferred to work with was on vacation, blah, blah, blah. I really didn't have much hope that things would work out with this guy; he seemed too unable to focus. I am not that kind of shopper. When I find what I want I get it bought, people!
Well today, he got it bought.
The Lord has done great things for us, and we are GLAD.
I'm grateful that no matter how I feel about things, God's truth is there to correct my emotions & train my thought processes. What great things has He done for you lately?
