Some idiot just totalled my husband's minivan. He was pulling out from work, the guy slams into him, crushes the front of the car and then proceeds to slam into a building. After another IDIOT stole our credit card last week, I'm beginning to feel like Job. Literally. It is hard to offer it up when we are down to one car, can't afford another and can't get ahead.

In this case, I think I am entitled to vent. Another fine example of be not being meek. I have no idea what we will do. This is our older car, a 1996. It isn't worth enough to get a new one, even used.

I'm going to sit, wait, pray. What else can I do?

Remember Schleprock? From The Flinstone's? You get the picture.

Oh, you poor thing!
I'm glad your hubby is okay, but that still SUCKS.

Yeah, me too. We didn't get out to ship tonight and it feels odd only having one car. With three kids, this should get interesting.

I'm so sorry! Sounds like some major spiritual warfare! This morning on Sacred Heart Radio I heard a great prayer--"I give up, You take over!" The priest said it always worked for him--God bless

Oh gosh, I have gone through this. I am praying for you. It is spiritual warfare. Christmas time we ended up down to one car, which only held four people. I have more than four children. If I can be of any help, please email me. God bless.

Prayers are just what I need. My husband is getting a rental car, thats a relief. I just have to get all these orders done. About 1.5 days behind for the holiday. We just got a new car last Fall so we can't afford another payment.
