Red Lights

After a successful oil change, we were about 30 miles down the road, when an engine alternator light began blinking. That’s not a good thing. Dad asked us to look for the nearest rest area so we could check it out, and the rest area was about 8 miles away. A couple of miles later, another light appeared, and the first light, instead of blinking, had changed to solid. Again, bad news. We prayed and took the nearest exit.

Dad found the problem immediately: a loose connector. He fixed it, and then he prayed as he went to start the engine. The red lights disappeared. We praise the Lord! Wow.

Please pray as we finish out these last 60 miles to New Albany. The wind is even stronger than yesterday.

Praising Jesus,

“For he shall give his angels charge over thee,
to keep thee in all thy ways.” Psalms 91:11

  1. Any kind of light coming on across the dashboard or control panel of a vehicle is enough to make me curl up into a ball and suck my thumb praying that if I ignore it, it will somehow repair itself and go away! Granted, that will not happen, and I do not do that, but scary times to say the least. I am glad you guys are doing well and that your dad found the relatively minor (minus the heart palpitations) issue.

    In Christ,


  2. So thankful the problem was able to be fixed in a brief amount of time. Continued prayers as you travel.
    Love, Mrs. Patti 🙂

  3. I am continually amazed how you are able to troubleshoot automotive issues. I am curious how you learned to do all these skills particularly applying to the bus. I am guessing you taught yourselves but how?
    I suppose Preparing Sons is the best explanation. The short one is “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.”

  4. Thank you for sharing your days with us. I read all your posts and I very much enjoy “watching” the wonderful example of a Godly family you all provide.
