Ray Ray is HOME!!!!!

I just have to share!

2 weeks ago my mini van was acting funny. So we took into a local shop around here that came highly recommended. They Quoted me $50-$75 to do a diagnostic check. So we took in and they ran it and told us it was the mass air sensor. Easy... Mr. Clean refused service from them because it is literally plugging in a new part and they want $260.00 for part and labor. So when Mr. Clean went there to pick it up they charged us $122 for a diagnostic test. Mr. Clean had no idea what they quoted me so he paid it and came home.

I was upset but decided just to drop it...maybe it took longer to figure out what was wrong??? We ordered the part for $40.00 and put it in and it was NOT the problem! We called someone else to fix it and it ended up being a coil and we also needed to new spark plugs.

We were talking to some friends who have the same van who just happened to go to the same mechanic and they told us they refuse service and only pay $35-$50 for a diagnostic test. So I was fuming and I decided to call well...the office manager is out til tomorrow so will have to wait.

BUT... my Ray Ray is home and he is fixed and he drives so nice! Mr. Clean and I were fighting over who got to drive him home! I won and that's only because he loves me! I am so grateful for the Lord blessing us with such a nice van! And let me tell you i thought those words would never leave my mouth!

Faith thru a fortune cookie????

My hubby and I have been walking through some pretty hard times. Without going into great detail... Financially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. Mr. Clean is a man of faith...He always declares in a strong voice..."God will provide all we need!" so when he starts to crack under pressure then I know we are being attacked and it's not something to shrink back on.

We have been declaring God's promises to us and standing on His word but it has not been easy. Especially since everyone around us is seeing breakthrough and we are NOT. We then began to question our lives... do we have sin in our lives???? Is there an area in our lives that we need delivered from??? We began to seek God on these questions and yes there were things reveled to us that we took worked through but still no major breakthrough with everything else.

Then we decided to get Chinese food the other day and Laney and I love the fortune cookies so I opened it up and began eating the cookie and Laney asked me what was on the paper. So i read it to her..."Better things are yet to come"

Huh??? she danced off but I began to cry because faith rose up in my heart. I am still overwhelmed to say the least but I am beginning to stand back up....if you know what I mean.

I am not a person who lives my life according to fortune cookies BUT I do believe that it was a message for me from my papa and I needed to hear it!
