As I mentioned earlier this week, this year Phillip and I each read a book called The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson and it completely revolutionized the way we pray. From that time we began to make circle prayers and shortly afterward felt the call to give away our Trailblazer. We asked God to do 1 of 2 things 1) provide us the ability to be a 1 car family (which again, was totally doable because I walk to work), or, 2) provide us with another car.
When we got back from Florida, we pressed forward with option 1, after all, it was the most logical, the most simple. We scheduled our week so that Phillip could have the car the majority of the time and I could drop him off on the days that I needed it. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
That was Tuesday.
“We could easily do this for a year!” we thought. . . .
Then Wednesday morning someone posted Scarlett on Craig’s List for roughly 1/3 of her value. We hesitated, assuming God had already answered our prayer but we couldn’t ignore it so we reluctantly went to look at her that afternoon. Turns out someone had keyed almost every body panel thus the reduction in price and if you know anything about the Craig’s List King, you know this is our kind of deal.
