WOW!!! Something unexpectedly fabulous happened to us in March-- First, our Honda kicked the bucket so we sold it to the mechanic for $300 for parts. We were happily sharing our minivan and planning to take advantage of the economic stimulus package and buy a nice Toyota Avalon from a coworker in May.

Well, God works in MYSTERIOUS ways for sure! I was mentioning how much exercise I was going to be getting riding my bike to work and how busy things are now that I'm working 2 jobs. (I go back and forth working at the hospital and the surgery center). Apparently, the Lord layed it on my friend's heart that she could fill the need sooner than May and she announced to me that she had a Mercedes sitting in her driveway and she would like me to have it!!! I was dumbfounded to say the least! This was so unexpected--what a generous act! I called Bob and told him and he was speechless. We went over to her house to pick it up and the funniest thing had happened-- a rat had tried to make a nest in the engine and chewed through the wires.

We were still excited and grateful. The boys just thought it was the best thing since sliced bread :) After having it towed and our mechanic got it in running order we now have a 2nd vehicle--and a very unexpected blessing! Praise the Lord!
