Tires.



I cannot begin to express how amazing God is!
Just thinking about his infinite love and grace brings warm goosebumps all over my body.

Mr. and I have a GMC Sierra 4 door truck. We love it.

It's big.

Spacious.

Can fit A LOT of stuff.

Perfect for our little future family.

Almost paid off. No more payments! Whoot Whoot!


When you own a somewhat older car (2009 you can tend to run into problems. Just the way it is.

We have had really good luck with our truck (knock on wood)

So far so good.


Until.....

Mr. and I took it into the shop to get an oil change and checkup.

Turns out our tires are balding out to the point where in a short time it will become unsafe to drive our truck.


We have to replace all 4 tires ($$$$$$$$$$)


"Where are we going to get the money to pay for this?"




We left the dealership, got some lunch and spend the day just being together. It was wonderful :)


That night....


We prayed....


We expressed to our Heavenly Father that we didn't know where the money was going to come from but that we loved Him and trusted Him that He would help us either way.


2 days later...


We got a call from his Dad....


His Dad and brother have been in the car business for years and years.


His Dad told us that the lease was up on his truck and he is going to be leasing a new truck and wanted to replace the tires on the new truck with other tires that he wanted.


Prayer answered.


New tires.


God is SO AMAZING!!



I love this quote from President Uchtdorf about God's love. He puts it so perfectly...

"Think of the purest, most all-consuming love you can imagine. Now multiply that love by an infinite amount—that is the measure of God’s love for you. God does not look on the outward appearance. I believe that He doesn’t care one bit if we live in a castle or a cottage, if we are handsome or homely, if we are famous or forgotten. Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we are imperfect, He loves us perfectly. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God love encompasses us completely. He loves us because He is filled with an infinite measure of holy, pure, and indescribable love. We are important to God not because of our résumé but because we are His children. He loves every one of us, even those who are flawed, rejected, awkward, sorrowful, or broken. God’s love is so great that He loves even the proud, the selfish, the arrogant, and the wicked. What this means is that, regardless of our current state, there is hope for us. No matter our distress, no matter our sorrow, no matter our mistakes, our infinitely compassionate Heavenly Father desires that we draw near to Him so that He can draw near to us."

— Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Brooke,
Thank you. That really means a lot.
Sometimes we just need to stand up for what we believe and when we do, it's amazing the things that can happen and come to pass.
