R.I.P. Chevy Cavalier

I headed out early Wednesday morning, to try to catch a breakfast/seminar from Big Brothers/Big Sisters. I got out on time and was enjoying the morning ride and generally liking life, when...bang, clank, clunk, thud. My car knocked hard and choked. Pulled over with the last bit of momentum and prepared to rage. but i had a different thought enter my head. "God you are in charge, and if this is your will than that's fine with me." a simple little prayer, but my bad situation turned into beauty real quick. right away i knew that the car wasn't going to be miraculously healed and i'd probably be on the side of the road for at least 45 or so. but i didn't care. it's so nice knowing that God is in charge. it doesn't seem so bad when something bad happens if we remember that "all things work together for the good of those who believe..." As i was sitting there on the side of the road i noticed the birds singing, the fresh air, the cars whizzing by. all beautiful. all singing God's praise. probably my best morning in a while.
Sometimes it's hard to see the beauty when life is coming at us with problem after problem. just remember that all things work together for the good and God uses all situations to achieve His will, even if it temporarily sucks.
