 We got up this morning, and thought it was going to be a laid back, relaxed morning getting ready for church. The challenge to this was that last night I decided to go ahead and list the Explorer (This is the truck that Jason gave me after he was injured. He was never going to be able to drive it again and it provided me with a vehicle, before Linda had come down) for sale. I woke up to a text message, and then another and then phone calls, and before 08:00 I had spoken to five potential buyers and had made appointments with all of them, for this afternoon. As it was, I still had time to get it down to the car wash  and back home again before church.

We went to church and it was very nice and relaxing. We took George with us, to meet some of the folks there, and to show him we were involved with a new church community. After church we headed home and just as we arrived the phone started going again. This time it was the same five folks and me telling them that the first buyer was going to be buying the truck. I kind of felt guilty that I wasn't able to let some of the other folks know sooner, and save them the trouble of driving up to a half an hour to get here, but it turned out as it did. The gentleman I sold it to, turned out to be a Marine, and that made me feel better, and he really seemed to know quite allot about vehicles and Fords in particular. He even brought some of his own test equipment and hooked up to find that the engine was in good shape and he was happy with the results. No haggling on the price, and in fact one of the other five offered to pay me a couple hundred more. I had already shook on the deal and the truck was sold for my asking price. The selling of the truck will help Linda and I with some upcoming expenses.

The rest of the evening was spent taking care of some paper work and then George and I took the girls to the San Diego Zoo. They are having a special Zoo-Lights event for the rest of the year and we wanted to let the girls see it. We did something different this time, too. We just walked everywhere, and didn't jump on a tour bus. The girls had a great time and we even visited an area we hadn't been to since last year - and that was the snakes and lizards displays. The girls were totally fascinated with all that they saw and managed to do a great deal of walking. We stayed until the lights, and then a little while after, then went home. When we got home, it was easy to tell they were tired. Linda had dinner just about ready, and then we sat down and had dinner. The girls went to bed, and this was Linda's turn to read them a story, and my guess is that they will sleep well tonight. Thank you, for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.


  1. Glad you were able to sell the car so quickly.
    Oh what comfort the Lord gives! Praying right now!
    2 Corinthians 1:3-5 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
