God is Good!

So I haven't posted in a while even though I Spark almost everyday. I just have been trying to listen and be quiet. A leader of my church group said I speak my mind too much, that is because for so long I have had others shove their brand of thinking down my throat that at a certain point I have to get my point across as well.....

Well, my 1999 Ford Expedition has been acting up but I have been doing everything but giving her mouth to mouth resuscitation!!! lol Yeah, its that serious, I really love/loved that truck. It's still sitting out front, I'm just wondering should I get a new engine for her? She starts up but the sounds coming out of her make me want to give her rest but she's got another 50,000 miles left in her at least?!! So I have been renting cars for the last week & a half and let's just say, it ain't cheap!!! Yesterday me, hubby & my youngest went out looking, just to look at cars. I had my heart set on this 2005 Infiniti beautiful car but the title had been rebuilt meaning she was in a wreck. UGH!!! Well we cruised on & found a 2008 Infinite powder blue & very low miles and I got to test drive her. She almost had my heart till they said, it's $15,800! So I waved goodbye, we went to Aurora Honda where I saw they had a 2009 Hyundai Genesis on the lot. The asking price was $13,995, I saw almost the exact same one for $16,995 so I knew it was definitely a deal. My hubby tried to do everything but they wouldn't budge at all. I have never been to a dealership where they never budged at all. We test drove it & it was great!! My hubby who DID NOT like the car was over the moon with all the accessories! MEN! They love toys gadgets & what nots and gidgets and gadgets galore. So needless to say, I am now the owner of this beautiful car. I still miss my truck but not putting gas into her. She needed a rest but still thinking of what to do with her? Here are picks of my new blessing that God gave me:

This not an actual pic but I was just a little excited. Its not brand new but with the new business just getting out the gate, I didn't want a semi truck tractor note and a huge luxury car note. In the future I still plan to either get a 2015 Hyundai Genesis or 2015 Dodge Durango/Jeep Grand Cherokee..... What are you grateful for these days?! Health definitely!!

I am doing ok on my workouts but not as much as I planned. I have my grandson most nights so it's like having a baby all over again. So he will be a year in May he is getting better each month. But he hates when he can't see you or be near you. I am trying to get in as much as possible on weekends & at work. How are you guys doing with the summer fastly approaching???

God bless & think healthy!!

    CHURCH FOLK always trying to change who God made us to be. NOTICE I SAID CHURCH FOLK?????God made us all different. He is the only who can make us into what he wants us to be NOT CHURCH FOLK! Those folk need to work on themselves. I was a very quiet girl. I still have my moments but now that I have found my voice in Christ I refuse to hush about his love and grace. I found my voice in him. emoticon nice ride bt the way.

    At my age it's hard to have children around for extended periods. Sure with my life experiences I have learned tons of patience and that the children are worth every moment I am able to give them. I also know certain things I want to get done will wait. You'll fit in pushups and bicycle crunches while you are down on the floor with the little one. Or do squats. Every minute counts.

    Love you!

    sounds like a deal and as for the other vehicle you can donate it to churches or other groups that help people that can't afford them.
