The consequences to a one vehicle family, finally realized!

We have been a single car family for about 5 or 6 years now. The thought of almost 900 or more for car payments makes me cringe! The only way we have truly managed to make this work, pretty much without a hitch, is because my husband has a work vehicle that he drives during the week. Oh....the other thing that's helped us is God's GRACE!!! 

Last night we finally were hit with the biggie! Our car died when we started coming home after dinner! 

There was something wrong with the power steering or some such thing ( I don't even pretend to know anything about cars or how they work) so we called the tow truck!

The cab of the tow truck didn't have enough room to fit the four of us so we got to sit in our car, the kids thought that was really cool! We could see the tops of everyone's car! The most fun was when the car was being taken up and then taken off the tow truck, we pretended we were in a rocket ship! 

Luckily a good friend my small group through church was able to give us a ride from the mechanic once we got our car towed. Thank God for kind people! 

Today I had to take the day off of work, since my office is about 27 miles from my home! Hopefully the car will be back in working order by the end of the day! Please pray for that with me!!

Have a blessed day!


  1. Thanks for joining my site! Your site is really cute!

  2. Thanks for your kind words on my family tree painting post. My sympathies with the car trouble, it is one of my least favorite things. One week, I kid you not, my husband's pickup got totalled and then my car caught on fire. No injuries from either incident, thank God. It was an amazing week for catastrophes and the local fire dept. still remembers it. Hope you are back on the road soon.
