A couple of days ago I opened my electric bill and to my surprise and total enjoyment saw that I owe only $25.94 this month!!!!! WOW, what a great surprise and wow how that gives me some breathing room this month. I was thrilled!!!
Well, unfortunately, that excitement of being a few bucks ahead this month didn’t last too long. The squeaky noise in my suspension (that I’ve done such a fantastic job IGNORING) got so bad yesterday that I worried the whole bottom would fall out of my car!!!!!
This morning I took the car into a mechanic and lo and behold, my bushings and some other part underneath needs replaced because they are as old as my car…. Actually probably come from the dinosaur ages. The quote was only $1,800.00!!!! GULP!!!!
So, I’m now in the market for a new (used car). Sorry, not going to put that kind of money into an n 11 yr. old car!!! What would go wrong next? I can’t afford to find out.
I sure did enjoy that electric bill savings even if it was for just a few hours!!!! The truth is though, the Lord does give and the Lord is good. We just have to keep trusting and keep loving and keep doing what is right…. that’s serving. For that I am so thankful. Thank you God.
