It was supposed to be just a routine oil change and tire rotation, but from the text I received from Crista, it looked like we were going to have to buy new tires. She texted me a picture (see header) of the tires and they were in bad shape. Thankfully, the mechanic had shown her how bad the tires were because I would have probably just told her, let's just try to make them last another month. I am not sure if that would lean towards being a man of faith or not wanting to face reality. Shelling out $900 during the Christmas season was not what I had in mind. I texted her back, "Merry Christmas, I hope you enjoy your present!" Of course, with a smiley face.
For a brief few moments, I was focused on the $900 that we had to pay out. But then, I was reminded of what could have happened. My lovely wife and children could have been driving 70 mph on the interstate and a tire could have blown. They could have been seriously injured or even dead. This was truly a blessing from the Lord. Satan always tries to get us to dwell upon the negative instead of what God is doing for us.
During this Christmas season take a moment and think upon the blessings of life. God is good and faithful.
Leave a comment and let us know what you are thankful for this year.
May God give you and your family a wonderful time together this Christmas.
