November was a wild ride for my hubbie and me. My '95 van was due for retirement so we bought a new '07 truck. So much fun. And even "fun-ner" when all my kids and grand kids were here for Thanksgiving. (My son and family were able to come down from VA.)
Ha! See what a big "honkin'" truck can do! I love it. Okay, it's not that big, but I do need the little help from the handle on the side of the door to get in. :P
We had my parents here, too; so the house was full of love and joy. Now that's Christmas enough for me.
Then the day after the kids arrived, my hubbie was in an accident and totaled his car! I praise the Lord he wasn't hurt-sore and achy, but not hurt. Now he needed a new vehicle. This sudden drop was unexpected. But the Lord held us tight in His coaster and now he has his new car.
Not what we planned for Christmas. But here's the thrill; hubbie wasn't hurt, insurance will cover, kids were here to soften the blow, we had a great time with love all around.
So I guess that roller coaster ride turned out okay after all.
"Therefore, since we receive a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us show gratitude by which we may offer to God an acceptable service with reverence and awe." Hebrews 12:28
Father I'm in awe for all You did, may my service show the extent of my gratitude.
ps-I'll be by soon to visit. :)
