Sometimes in the path of life we hit speed bumps. We hit a speed bump this evening. Our main vehicle's radiator has had a small leak in it for awhile. We choose to ignore the problem and "wait until we have the money" to replace it. Well that time has come! So here I sit in this car pondering and thanking God for his blessings as we wait for a tow truck (which has informed us it would be two hours before it gets here).
Blessing? Where is the blessing that I speak of? We are blessed in the fact that this happened two days after payday ;) and our funds are much more abundant than say two days before payday. We are blessed in the fact that my husband was able to pull into a well lit Arby's parking lot and we are not sitting in the dark on the side of the highway. We are blessed in the fact that a nearby auto parts store had the part in stock and we didn't have to order the part. We are blessed in the fact that there is a tow truck coming (eventually) and even though it is getting late he is not charging an after hours fee. See there are so many ways of looking at the good and bad things that happen to us in this game called life. More often than not though most things can be looked at positively and we are all blessed more than we can ever know!
Thank You Jesus!
