Life Truly Sucks

I am typing this post from a computer at the other shop, I forgot my cell phone today. It was one heckuva day to forget it.

Anyway I was getting ready to leave today and was driving out of the parking lot when my car just stopped running. Battery was fine, starter was fine. I had a mechanic from the shop look at the car. He told me that the timing belt was busted and would cost about 2000 dollars to fix it. Problem is I only paid 1700 for the car. Kathy is coming to get me. With both my son and son in law unemployed, it isn't the best time to have something like this happen. I wish I could catch a break.

Pray for me. I need it.

I hope and pray that things turn around for you. Maybe check with another mechanic and get a second opinion, or a better estimate?

Thinking of you and your family...

Cliff,
I know life is beating you up right now..... I wish I had words of wisdom that would "make it all better".

I will be praying for you... just lean on God; ask him to meet you in the midst of the deep valley you're going through and he will. (He always has in the past, right?)

God is trustworthy and won't ever abandon you. Don't forget that. Sometimes you have to rely on what you KNOW, rather than on the "evidence" to the contrary and on what you FEEL.

Hang in there.
