Gave up the Ghost

The truck that is - the truck gave up it's ghost. :( Sad day! it's been a good truck for Richard. He has enjoyed it. a ford 1991 Ranger 4X4.
Originally the plan was to try to sell it for about $1500 before we moved and try to get as much as we could out of it. We were praying for wisdom about what to do and when to try to sell it etc. We gave a huge long prayer request in Sunday school one Sunday. No lie - exactly 25 hrs later it completely died and will never be revived. It needs a new transmission and it costs too much money to be properly diagnosed and too much time to get it to a mechanic who can look at it. The engine is making a funny noise also, so that probably needs a lot of work done to it.

So hopefully today it will be taken to the Junk Yard. So sad to see a good truck die so suddenly. We will miss it. It was pretty much terrible timing b/c we don't have the time to put into trying to figure out how to revive it and we wanted to get rid of it anyways. God answered our prayers and sort of solved the problem for us. so we are down to one car. Which has worked out fine, b/c Richard can drive a company vehicle most days to and from work so I haven't had to take him or pick him up too much.

The Lord has BETTER things for you. I can tell in your post that I have passed on my nostalgic thinking to you. I was always sad to say good-bye to any vehicle we had!!! Anyway, I'm praying for two really GOOD vehicles for you in Colorado!
