but, lord, that's ridiculous !
After my wife passed away, my prayer life became a little different. No one was at home, so I began praying out loud, throughout the day. It's a real pleasure to talk with God as my Savior and Friend. He had saved me from a sinful life many years before 2015, but my prayer for a new car went unanswered, until I realized Christ had a plan. I was asking for a car, but He was reminding me, "But, you have a car." That's when I said, right out loud, "That's ridiculous !"...
"I can't drive a 1932 Dodge across America !"
"My mother turned it over once... and then my uncle... well, let's just say it had a hard life over all those years."
"It's been in storage for years... and several years outside."
"You've got to be kidding ! Drive that across America ? The fenders are bent and falling off !"
"The motor had a squirrel's nest on top of it."
"It had a junk yard engine from a 1971 Ford that I had installed myself in 1976."
"Besides, the inside's a wreck !"
