Waiting for The Car

Although it sounds like a cheap novel, my day began as any other day. Really, it did!

Kids got off to school early dogs fed and cats, too. Rhonda came home, we talked through the prior evenigs events. She told me of her night at the hospital. I cleaned up and left for work. I headed outside and started the car. Ah, the familiar sound of a battery struggling to start the car. And this morning, it was strggling mightily.

So, I drove to the nearest auto parts store and had it tested. Bad battery. But, the auto place didn’t have a new one. So, off to the dealer. However, when I tried to leave, dead battery. It seems the act of testing the battery killed it. After a jump from the auto parts guy, I was on my way except I couldn’t kill the car or I’d never get it restarted. On to the dealer as fast as possible

I can’t help but wonder if this is God’s message for me today. Maybe, I must keep my battery charged – fresh and new and ready for whatever the day might hold. Maybe, I must rely on others to help me charge myself so I can go on my way. Perhaps, it is God’s telling me to give thanks rhat I have resources to make repairs (which did total up since I was behind on regular maintenance.) Or, perhaps it is just a dead battery and nothing more and God isn’t teaching me anything today.

I’m sure it isn’t the last one. God is always teaching me something. I’ll wait and see. But, nice to ponder on God while in the dealership.
