For months I’ve been praying that God would provide us with another vehicle. I love our van, but it is an ’89 Chevy Astro van with over 288,000 miles on it. It’s been a great vehicle, but it’s getting tired. So I began praying for the next vehicle.
To make a crazy-long story short, we have a new car now. Well – I say new, because it’s new to us. It’s a Toyota Camry. It’s a few years old, but is in great condition and drives well. I love it.
One thing I am thankful for is the gas mileage it gets. It seems like we can go for forever without filling up the tank – and compared to the 11mpg the van gets – I’m very thankful. Especially if you consider that some weeks Stephen drives as many as 500 miles for work (he does computer tech work, and drives to different companies each week).
I love seeing answers to prayer like this. I prayed that God would give us a car, and He did. We will save money on gas, and the cost of the car fits well within our budget. After being a one vehicle family for almost two years, I’m happy to have a second car again. I really don’t go much, but still, having a vehicle here with me every day is so much more convenient. I am so thankful!
