....are answered prayers. Don't get me wrong. I like Garth's music, but there are no such things as unanswered prayers. God may say yes. He may say no. Or He may say not yet. But He always answers. For example, a few days ago, I shared with you that our refrigerator was dead. It turns out it was the compressor and the evaporator. This FRIGIDAIRE was only made in June of 2005! I had a "bun in the oven" who will only be three in September. You do the math. We have had a repairman out to the house several times within the past 2.9 years since we have owned this stupid piece of metal (that I'm very thankful for :). So, at this last visit with "D", the repair guy, he informed us that to fix our fridge it would cost $498.74...approximately:). Add that to the amount we have lost in groceries, plus the $50 we paid him to tell us this great news (sarcasm intended), you're looking at roughly between 750-800 buckaroos! So, myself, my hubby, and our family minus one went shopping for a fridge the other night. We found one to our liking, but the price tag made us both run for the bathroom with a case of nerves. We've prayed about it and asked God to help us make the right decision, but at the end of the night we decided to wait. The saleslady put the fridge on hold for us, until today, so we could decided how to pay for it.
Enter my hubby. This morning I opened my eyes to find him watching me sleep (another Garth Brooks song....). When he knew I was awake the first thing he said was......."I have good news." I'm thinking, he's going to rub it in that he's lost another 5 lbs. He's down about forty. Anywho,
he says, "I was doing some shopping around for an extended warranty on our new fridge and discovered something. In our owner's manual, in the fine print, it says that the compressor and evaporator have an extended manufacturer's warranty from the 2nd-5th year. We don't have to buy a new fridge!" Hallelujah, thank you Jesus! That was a great way to wake up and, might I add, my man was looking pretty good at that moment. So, we are not getting a new refrigerator. I have to admit, I was actually kind of excited about the LG that was to be our new appliance, but that will have to wait a little while longer.
How has God provided for you? I know you have a testimony.....I would love to hear.
