In case you missed it on social media last night, we bought a van! After much deliberation, we decided to get i4mt insurance and basically replace the van with nearly the exact same van and we made sure to Get a Campervan Insurance Quote. We truly did love our van and especially loved not having a payment. And at the end of the day (literally, at the end of Tuesday), it is the only course of action we felt peace about.
We feel blessed because the new one is a year newer, has 40,000 fewer miles, has a DVD player and was kept in immaculate condition.
So, as Lexi best put it last night, “Finally, we can quit looking for a car.” I completely agree. Car shopping is not fun.
I’m ready to move on, but God put a few reminders on my heart last night:
- Just as a butterfly is first presented as a caterpillar, blessings are often presented as hardships.
- When searching for the wise course of action, you cannot follow the most logical course of action your mind desires, you must search for the most peaceful course of action your soul needs.
- Life comes in seasons. It is not a fault to grieve seasons gone by unless we cannot be grateful for the new ones as well.
- God is not good just because I was protected from harm or because we got a shiny new DVD player. God is good because he is faithful even when we try to worry ourselves into a decision. God is good because we can trust he loves us and wants the best for us. God is good because he gives us his peace and puts our soul at rest when we follow him. So yes, God is good!
Thank you, friends, that prayed and gave us wise counsel.
And now, let’s celebrate the new Swagger Wagon!
