a reminder about not putting our trust in earthly things


I can't believe I'm writing these words.

Our car broke down.  Again.

We just replaced the transmission.  Like two weeks ago.  And that was after not having the car for a month, getting it towed from place to place, and then finally reuniting with it.

So what gives? 

The last time this happened, we learned a lot about how God provides in really creative ways as we borrowed not one or two but seven different cars from seven different people, most of whom we didn't even ask to borrow a car from.

This time, I don't know what we're going to learn.  Maybe a little bit of patience.  Maybe a little bit of not relying on earthly things.  Maybe a lot of both.  And then some.

Hey you out there in internet land - could you do me a favor and say a prayer for us?  Because I'm really confused as to what to do with this situation.

...asking God for a miracle right now... 
...and maybe to gain a little clarity...

...and to keep things in perspective...

UPDATE:  We are getting the car sometime tomorrow (seriously - praise the LORD, folks!).  They didn't install the transmission correctly, which caused something bad to happen to the axle (can you tell I'm not a car person)?  But since it was their fault, it's all being done for free (can someone say miracle?) and we had an impromptu family day today.  Thank you for your prayers!
