random things......



Over here there is alot of "opinion-ators!" For instance Mercy is for "Dodge, Jeremiah is 100% Ford, Josh wouldn't even think of owning a Ford!" I am for " if it has 4 wheels and if it runs, drive it!" So which one are you for?????? Lets get some opinions going in your comments for fun, tells us what you like, Dodge or Ford!!!!! Rememeber back in the fall the Lord allowed Elijah to be able to buy a Kubota tractor and yesterday he was able to buy a truck, he's got a small "fleet" going and in his new truck it has a "middle seat" and we were kinda giving him a hard time and calling it a "wife seat." Now that he's got a tractor and a truck, he needs to work on getting him some land and a _ _ _ _! But I think Elijah is not quite ready to pursue that as of yet, all in God's time!!!! We are sincerely grateful for God's answer to this prayer so specifically, I was needing and asking the Lord to have mercy and grant this, I really needed to "see Him." I know too that if it had not gone as we prayed, it was just not His will and another truck would have been had sooner or later.

Guess what?????? I get to go grocery shopping and do errands today!! Not in Elijah's truck but because of the Gibson family letting us borrow their mini van, I can have an easier time getting around than two weeks ago in the big 350. I'll be hitting the road here shortly, Lord willing! It did work out and all we "need " is for the now and not be concerned about another two weeks.

Last night Caleb was doing some of his bank work on-line and something very unusual was showing up on his account. This "price saver" kept showing up as being used on his debit card. He looked back and he found 8 times $ 19.80 had been charged out of his account over the last 4 months. Bethany looked this "price saver" up on-line and it is an identity theft thing. He is canceling his card and the bank is going to take care of the rest. Just letting you know as a warning to make sure and keep up to date on where your money is going. Kinda shocking!

It does not look like the guys are going to close today on the land. They are disappointed but knowing too, that God is in it and will happen according to His will. It has to do with the folks getting Dave's house, they needed a survey and it might even get surveyed today but the weekend will push it to likey middle of the week. Lord willing....soon!!!!

Ok, who loves craigslist???????? We have major craiglist-orators!!! I should probably have t-shirts printed for our house, "I Love Craigslist!" Just kidding!!!!! it is so funny to watch people in our family snag something up around here and put it on craiglsit. When we took the wall out, there was door and a 4 x4 foot window. Micah listed both for $35, He ended up selling the door for $30 and the window for $20. Its like a scavenger hunt and whoever finds it gets to list it and make some extra cash! Micah is the one that does it the most, he has listed mowers, deer cameras, bows and just recently a 9 foot stainless sink he sold for $300. Andrew is not far from getting "dibs" on stuff too. A few years ago, Elijah sold our old tractor for not alot less that what we paid for it. Bethany has sold some of her commercial goats on it, I have sold some furniture items, but we ahve also used it to buys lots of stuff too. Deer cameras, bows, and much more. Anyway its fun to see them "dash" around for the next item and list it and make some cash! When ever we finish tearing out the kitchen, there will probably have to be a hat and let folks draw for the item to list, we'll have cabinets, some appliances and no telling what else!!!!!

Well, better get going........have a great weekend!!! Looks like we can all go to church together!!!!

Ford around here! ;-)

My Dad likes to tell a story, when he and my Grandpa were out driving their Ford truck, it broke down on the roadside. They were out trying to fix it, and someone drove past, but slowed down only long enough to call out the window "Shoulda bought a Chevy!"

We are a Dodge family here. Son has a 1997 and Husband has a 2009 Dodge. BUT, we also have a 1977 Ford that my husband drives back and forth to work. He doesnt care who puts a car door into it but let it be the new truck......Oh me. LOL So I would say the Dodges win!

Hannah B. said...

FORD!!! My brother has brain-washed me. :P

But...I would be happy to ride in just about any truck as long as it's BIG!! =D

What a great answer to prayer and SO exciting for Elijah!! Thank You, Lord!

Give me Dodge!

Caleb B said...

Ford all the way. But if I couldn't get that I would pick Dodge. Maybe.

Petie said...

Okay, I must confess that although I really like Elijah's truck, I am a Ford girl all the way! :)

Well, if you remember waaay back, my Daddy had a CHEVY ! I loved that red truck. I got my first almost ticket in that truck on my way to church. I was reaching in my purse for my lipstick and swerved right near a police officer. lol No ticket. ; )

My hubby says Ford builds a good truck and I believe him.

OK now...soooo glad to see you friend!!! How fun that you have a blog. I'll have to come back tomorrow and read more...it's awfully late tonight.

BTW, you have a beautiful family!

Jessica said...

Craigslist has been great for us, too.

We're in the market for a used truck. We determined that we cannot do another Indiana winter without a 4X4. My husband thinks that a Ford will really go the distance (as far as mileage is concerned.) But, we've been very happy with our eight year old Dodge Durango which has been very reliable.

So, time will tell which "make" we end up with!

Coach Eliya said...

I like both the trucks a lot - they're both beautiful! As long as it drives and doesn't break down, I'm happy. If I had a choice I'd certainly choose Ford over Dodge though!

Becky said...

I like Dodge, that is what we own, but FORD is my favorite. Besides that they aren't owned by the government. :)

Abigail said...

I'm of the "if it has wheels, a radio, and runs - drive it!" opinion. Especially since the Lord has blessed by giving me both of my vehicles!

But if I could choose...it would be a Chevy dually, diesel, with a hitch for a gooseneck, blue and gray... A farm girl can dream...
