No Good Awful Very Bad Day


Today did not get started off on the right track, not one bit. Kyle tried leaving for work this morning and the car wouldn't start :-( Ugh, NOT TODAY! We're leaving town tomorrow and kind of needed our car to get there. We only have 1 working vehicle now. Why today? Why not a week we were going to be around all week? So, we called a tow truck, we called the mechanic, we called Enterprise Rental Company and got everything lined up. Kyle went with the car to the mechanic, Enterprise picked him up. Now, we're just praying that the car will be done by tomorrow afternoon when we need to leave so we don't have to pay for the rental car for 2 more days. There were no guarantees that it would be done by tomorrow, but God's so much bigger than all that!

We let the dog in the back yard to go to the bathroom. She was out there for 10 minutes and managed to dig a 10" deep who in the MIDDLE of our BRAND NEW GRASS! Dumb dog. Don't know what possessed her...

Any way, that's my bad day...hopefully, it gets better by hearing from the mechanic and finding out it really isn't a big problem and will be fixed by 2 tomorrow afternoon. But, I'm not going to put God in box that small...any news would be great.

Praying that you feel God's peace through it all!
