This Tuesday

So guess what happened today? Our 1993 Toyota Camry was stolen
out of our driveway. WHY? 267,000 miles, paint peeling, OLD car.
The police in the neighboring city found it, called us and had it
towed costing us $220, and we couldn't drive it because the thieves
had "popped" the ignition on it. Now insurance is involved, we have a
$250 deductible, and if it is considered totaled, we will get a check
for what the old car is worth. OLD. We just need the car. And, they took
e v e r y t h i n g that was in the car, including about 30
Christian CD'S-!!, and- our garage door opener. . . .
I've spent this WHOLE day on being a victim twice over, and looking for
God's plan in the issue. I know He has one. :-}

"I will call upon the LORD, [who is worthy] to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies.
They prevented me in the day of my calamity: but the LORD was my stay.
He brought me forth also into a large place; He delivered me, because He delighted in me."
Psalm 18

Isn't it amazing, He delights in us?

Have a Good evening,


  1. That is totally horrible....I am so sorry this has happened to you.....

  2. I'm with you - WHY????
    You're handling it well and I'll be praying along with you in this - you are right - the Lord is in control and HAS a plan!

  3. Oh, Pokey, I am so sorry. What in the world is going on in this world anymore? Carol

  4. I'm so sorry, but really, stealing Christian music, how ironic is that?

  5. I'm truly sorry on your loss. My husbands very old rabbit (car) was stolen. Situation was very similar to yours. Even though the cars are old, when they are reliable it isn't fun to spend $$$ to fix them up, when they are returned damaged or to have to buy another car. Not fun at all. So sorry it happened to you!


  6. I'm sorry to hear about your stolen car.

  7. That is a horrible thing! Shall we pray that they listen to the CD's before selling them and see the light?

    Hope your week gets better!

  8. There has to be a good reason for this. I will pray that God will use this for His purposes. I guess the way we see things it just doesn't make sense. Glad we can trust Him. Love ya,

  9. Oh that's terrible! I hear you on the worst part being the missing CDs. It takes time and money to accumulate a nice collection of CDs!

  10. UGH! What a horrible way to start your day! Hope that it all works out somehow.....

    take care

  11. How horrible for your family! I'm so sorry that this happened to your car!

  12. I am so sorry this happened to you. I do hope you changed the garage door code so they can't get in there too. What a great attitude you have tho.

  13. Oh Pokey, I came over to visit from Jocelyn's blog (you left a comment on her blog hopping post), only to find this bad news! I am so sorry for you and your family - we've had this happen to us too, a long time ago, but one does not forget that feeling of horror when you come outside to find your car gone.
    You do have the right attitude though, and I'm going to keep reading your blog, as I can already see some nice eye candy!
    Hugs from Gina in Australia

  14. I'm sorry to hear this has happened. I hope the person(s) who did this will play those CD's and be transformed. Thank you for your kind words on my blog. I always look forward to hearing from you. Have a blessed day!

  15. Pokey, I'm so sorry this happened to you. You're doing exactly the right thing. Lean on God and trust him. You might never see God's plan as it involves this horrible incident. But God can work with any material. Saying a prayer for you, Pokey.

  16. I'm so sorry your car was stolen. Remember good things come out of something bad. My husbands car was stolen once, thankfully the insurance repaired it, but not without that deductible. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  17. Send me a way to contact you and I would love to share some of my CD's with you...you don't even have to win the giveaway http://quiltingranny.blogspot.com & yes, they are Christian CD's

  18. oh no! I certainly hope you changed out your garage door opener... I would not be able to sleep at night knowing they had it.

    I hope that your insurance company comes thru for you - keep all of us posted..

    Love from Texas! ~bonnie
