Well, we're in the market for a car right now. As I told you before, this is why I'm learning to drive a stick in case we end up with one. Unfortunately, the great Escape is gone. I didn't think it would last long, but now I know that God has something else for us. Now, we're trying to figure out if this is the one.
Over the weekend, we went to a dealership to try out a beautiful Taurus that had been reduced to a great deal. We also wanted to try out another SUV that was close to our price range, and maybe could be talked down. I got the closing hours wrong, so when we got there, we only had time enought to drive the Taurus, which we liked, but I couldn't see well enough due to my short height (I pretty much need power seats to be able to see comfortably).
On Monday, I was once again checking out the inventories online & saw the SUV we were kinda interested in. The price had dropped $3000! I was shocked, so I called Geoof & told him to check it out on his way home from work. He test drove it, and said I should try it. So, I did last night. We've weighed the pros and cons, and the pros do outweigh the cons.
Last night after church, we walked out the door and there was the same SUV for sale by owner. That was weird! It was a lower type model, had more miles than the other one, and was more expensive. Was that a sign?? (we don't really believe in "signs," but it was a strange feeling) But, does that mean we should get it? Does anyone havc advice on determining God's will? Personally, I am an indecisive person, so this is wreaking havoc on me! I know that nothing is a coincidence, but we really don't want to rush ahead of God! We desire His best!
A mechanic will check it out tomorrow and give us an honest opinion about it. I guess from there, we'll make our decision.
Here's the cause of our sleepless nights!
