it all started the day my car’s tire light came on . . . so
I gave my car a tire, a brand new tire (didn’t really have a choice as flat ones don’t roll well)
then my car wanted another new tire to match the first one
then she wanted and got a tire rotation
next she asked for and got an alignment
then my car’s oil light came on, so I gave her an oil change, . . . but
while her oil light was still on, her gas light came on, so I filled her up (she wanted the super silver premium, “gourmet gas” — she got regular; I have my limits)
then she wanted a wash to look her best (don’t know who she was trying to impress?)
then she asked for a “works wash” with tire shine added (must be wanting to show off her new tires?)
and all because I gave my car a new tire . . .
my car is most definitely “high maintenance”
moral? never, ever, ever dear readers, give your car a new tire — unless of course you have no choice –but then be prepared for what will follow . . .
“give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thessalonians 5:18)
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” (Philippians 4:4)
“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; His love endures forever.” (Psalm 106:1)
“Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for men.” (Psalm 107:21)
Lord, thank You that I have transportation and thank You that my tire didn’t blow, but let her air out real, real slow and got me where I needed to go.
sincerely, Grace Day
