Gigantic Unexpected Blessing!

Michael has been wanting a good used, F250 diesel, crew cab Ford pickup for years. He loves his 1958 Chevy pickup, but we can't all fit in it. He's had it since high school and has restored it, even painting it himself. It has been a part of our family, but it is time to move on. Here's a picture of Michael and Hailey waving good-by for the last time just before Michael drove away in the Chevy to go pick up the Ford.



We traded in our little blue Chevy Cavalier and the '58 Chevy so we could afford to pay cash for this gorgeous red truck. I told Michael I thought he made sure it was red on purpose so I would have a hard time saying no, because he knows how much I love red. Well, it worked! I love it and it didn't take long for him to talk me into, especially since he got such a great deal on it. It is an 2002, automatic, F250 diesel, crew cab, short box. Everything we wanted between the two of us. It has tinted windows which is wonderful for our sensitive redheads (their skin and their eyes).
I'm so proud of Michael for waiting on God's timing to buy a pickup. I'm glad he avoided the temptation of buying one on credit. "Good things come to those who wait" and I truly believe God has chosen to bless Michael unexpectedly because he waited on God. As a result, the whole family has been blessed!
