Being a girl and not a mechanic.... the other day when my car started rattling, I really wanted to just turn the radio up and ignore the noise and the shaking... But being the brilliant person I am I promptly called my dad (Who claims that I only call him when I need to)... He told me a couple of things that it could be... All of the options were best case scenarios... So on Thursday I took my adorable little car to my friendly mechanic Bob... (Who appears very fierce, but is extremely kind) He told me that it was safe for me to drive till Friday when he could fix both of my struts!!!! Which would cost about 200 dollars :-( Being a teacher means that money is usually pretty tight during the summer... and this was not the news I wanted to hear.
So I drive very carefully all day Thursday, and very nervously this morning dropped off my car to Bob... He called me several hours later and told me that there was good news and bad news. Bad news was I had a tire with a broken belt, an extremely bad broken belt... but the good news was that my struts were fine... And they didn't need replaced!!!!! :-) My total cost was 25 dollars. Isn't God wonderful... He knows just what we need!!!
On top of all of this... Yesterday I was praying at work about what to do about my car... I told the Lord that he knew all about it and asked him to provide the money... My last table left me a ten dollar tip... which was about half of their bill.... Our God is a wonderful God!!!
