We continue to see the Lord’s Hand on every aspect of this transmission replacement. We received a call from the shop. Upon pulling the transmission, they found that it was actually the new style of transmission. So, the good news is, instead of sending the transmission up to Grand Rapids and waiting while it was rebuilt, they were able to order one right away. They should have it “in hand” Friday or Monday. Lord willing, Uriah should be repaired and ready for us to re-inhabit early next week.
We had a nice evening last night. A sweet family has treated us to Chick-Fil-A. What a blessing! Thank you!
This morning, we set out in kayaks. A neighbor had previously allowed us to use two of their kayaks so we could all go out together. Dad talked with them, and they happily said we could use the kayaks again.
It took awhile to get settled in our kayaks, but then we headed for the Gulf. The inlet in our back “yard” takes you out to the Gulf if you go far enough. It was easy going since we were flowing with the tide. Reminds me of a spiritual analogy. As Christians, we are to go against the tide (the world). If we go with the tide, life can sail along pretty smoothly, because doing what the world wants is easy. It doesn’t require “hard decisions”. “… know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” James 4:4
Anyway, after we got out to the Gulf, we turned around, and that’s when the going become hard. But, with consistent, steady strokes, we made progress.
We look forward to church tonight :-).
