"The LORD will always guide you and provide good things to eat when you are in the desert. He will make you healthy. You will be like a garden that has plenty of water or like a stream that never runs dry." Isaiah 58:10-12

Fear and Fancy Cars

I know, I missed a couple of days of "Thanks" at the end of November! It's been a rather crazy week or two. Here's the end of the Thanks-giving list:

30th - Today I'm thankful that God enables me to live a life without fear. Not long ago I met someone who is undoubtedly the most fearful person I've ever met in my life. The more I got to know her, the more I discovered just how many fears she has. She is afraid of so many things that I wonder how she's able to function at all. I think it must be excruciating to be so bound by such a multitude of fears and to not know the freedom that Christ brings to those who put their trust in Him. Needless to say, I'm praying for this person!
29th - Today I'm thankful for automobiles that work. I drive a small SUV and, while it was most definitely an unexpected but necessary purchase last December, it's been a good car. It's not overly fancy, with all the "bells and whistles" extras, but it's stylish, a nice color, reliable and good on gas. I also like the fact that I don't have to bend down to get into it or feel like I'm on my knees when I get out of it! It's much easier on the muscles and joints than my former vehicle. I still need to think of an appropriate name for it, though... Any suggestions?
