The truck broke down again… likely a leak with the EGR cooler… the engine had no coolant… and the Groundhog lied about an early spring it’s supposed to sleet/snow tomorrow, followed by a day (possibly 2) of cold rain… then the generator ran out of gas while I was making breakfast in the oven…
Ain’t nobody got time for that!
I realize it is not the end of the world. There are many families dealing with much worse. It’s just another setback that I was not prepared for. And no, I did not overlook the irony of it just days after my “typical day” post.
While I was wallowing for a (few) minute in my self pity (no transportation, no quick warmth, no way to charge phones/tablets, there goes part of the roof fund), I clicked on my (already dying) phone. My Daily Bible verse Philippians 4:4 “Rejoice in the Lord always. I say it again, Rejoice!”
I rejoice in You Lord for providing my husband with a job while we face this large repair bill (instead of jobless like we have been for most of the last year and a half) – his first full check came today.
I rejoice in You for working through my father in law months ago, to provide us with another truck so Mr. can still go to work and the grocery store.
And the more I thought about it – I rejoice that we are being “forced” into our new home. We have been taking the easy way out by being in the truck so much – temperature controlled, power!, a seat for everyone. Instead of it being an exception, it had become the rule; our crutch to the “powered” world.
Old habits die hard.
The next week is going to be verrrry interesting!
