With eternity in mind...

I know that most people don't make decisions about cars with eternity in mind...

but I do...

I bought a minivan because of my small group of high school students.  One was in a wheel chair and they were in high school and a small car just didn't cut it.  I ended up loving my minivan.

Today I traded her in.  I actually was kind of crabby about it.

HOWEVER, while taking a shower...  I was praying and realized the following things:

Keeping Gertie is not living with eternity in mind.  It's not practical and God has something else in mind with HIS provision not gas...

A lot of people would be super happy to drive a 2009 Ford Fusion

She is cute (and sassy) - a lot like me!

I can afford her

It's a decision with eternity in mind...  can't reveal it all... but time will tell!

So happy day!

I'll stop being a jerk now!
