So long….car

28 Jan

Well, tomorrow we will be surrendering our other car to the bank as a voluntary repossession.  The last vehicle we took back to the bank was my husband’s, but this one is mine so it hurts just a titch.  It’s what I’ve used for EVERYTHING the last 6 years, and is all my kids really know.  But, what can you do?  Times are tough, and you just have to deal with things as you can and keep moving on!  I’ll be sorry to see it go, but am glad for the way God has taken care of us.  A few years back we did some trades and got the car that Mark is currently driving, and it’s free and clear.  And just last week he traded a bunch of equipment for an older car that will work great for running around.  So, we still have two vehicles to get to work and school and back, and as an added bonus, the new one we just got last week gets about 3 times the gas mileage than my Expedition!  We’ll be saving a ton, and now will have two rigs that we don’t owe anything on.  🙂

No one expected this economic season to last this long or to go this deep.  When things like this hit, you can do one of two things:  give up, or keep fighting.  Well, the first option, for us, is not even an option.  We have a saying in our family that the Weaver’s never give up.  As long as God has given us breath to walk another day, we’ll keep fighting and plugging along in this life, no matter what it brings!

And the only way we can say that with any confidence is because we know our hope is not found in our circumstances, or how nice of a car/clothes/house/whatever we have.  It rests in the assurance and hope of a life that has been redeemed, and a God who loves and cherishes us more than the ends of the earth and is willing to do anything for us.

    Pam, Your honesty is refreshing and it’s allowing us to watch your family walk through this time expecting Jesus to meet you every step of the way. As a side funny the ad just below your post says “Looking for a GM vehicle? ” So glad to hear God’s provision for your wheels to continue to transport your family exactly where He wants you to go. Keep on writing He is being glorified.
