Blessings of God 2

I'm just amazed sometimes at how God really does take care of us and provide for us. This comes to mind because recently I've been looking for a Toyota Tacoma to buy and a buyer for my Scout. Well, I finally found the Tacoma (praise God) and it has been a great truck. There are a few little issues I need to get straightened out, but I'm just happy to not be driving the Scout. Once I bought my Tacoma I was looking for a way to sell my Scout. I knew that it would be a while in the truck trader because it's a vehicle for a very niche market. That didn't give me a lot of hope, so I prayed and had others pray that my truck would sell fast and for a decent amount of money. I bought my Tacoma on a thursday and 2 days later a climbing buddy of mine calls me up on saturday morning and asks how I'm doing and if I'm still selling my Scout. I'm kinda stunned at the randomness of the phone call, but told him about my recent purchase and what I was asking for the Scout. He had moved to Tuscon and wanted something to go offroading with his family in, but his kids were to young for quads. He bought it a couple days later for $3,700 which is a decent price that seemed like something we could both live with. His family is loving the Scout and have been doing a lot of 4 wheeling in it. I'm glad it's found a good home.

The biggest thing is that a friend who didn't have my number and who I hadn't talked to in months calls me up out of the blue and buys my Scout. That's God, no if's, and's or but's about it. That gave me money for a new computer and money to refinance my truck loan in 6 months. God has also blessed me relationally with great friends and family. I pray that I can do rightly by Him and be who He has called me to be. That I can be the kind of son, brother, grandson, friend and employee that reflects the love of Christ and is always willing to serve others. Help me to know what it is like to be a follower of Christ. Teach me your ways, may the dust from your feet cover me.

Hey Bro! What's happenin? Sorry I couldn't really talk to you Sunday. I really needed a nap, and was going to be really busy in a couple of hours, so I had to give up the phone. I hope you had a good conversation with Dave though. I'm going to say really a couple more times just for the sake of really being really monotonous. Really. Anyway, you really need to post again, and I'll call you back later. Love You Bro.

LOL, you all are funny. I'm just tryin to go for the record here of having the most comments on a blog. But really, I need to get my internet working, and am having a helluva time doing so. I can't do anything more than leave a quick comment at work, so I don't really have the means to blog you see. Sorry, I really do have some cool stuff going on that I'd like to blog on, and I'd love to get access to all the great bible software online as well.
