Prayers Needed for my parents!

Friday, November 12, 2010

My dad drives for Panther Expedited as an owner operator. His truck, which is my parents' livelihood, broke down about two weeks ago. They have been waiting to hear if the truck is ready so he can get back to work, [the head had to be replaced], it has been in the shop for over a week and was to be ready a couple of days ago but then had a setback in the repairs.
However, they still don't know if they have enough money to pay for it even if they use credit cards, the estimate alone was over $4100 and now is more because of the setbacks.

Right now, due to all of this, my mom is struggling and feeling frustrated and down about it all. She had wanted to come out here to HI to be with me when the baby comes, but now with this all happening, she doesn't see how she will be able to. I've told her I'm willing to help her out to get out here. If she doesn't come out, I don't know who we will leave our son with when the baby does decide to come. This saddens me because I really want to have my mom come out here for the baby's birth.

They've already been struggling with keeping afloat with bills and what not and now this has come up.

Please pray that God will meet their need! We are trusting in Him!

    I will certainly keep your parents, their situation, and your situation in my daily prayers! I can't think of any thing better than having your mom with you when you have your baby and have her care for your son when you deliver. I was either with all of my children when they delivered (except for one time) or watched their children when they delivered my grandchildren! I have eight (8) grandchildren and one (1) great granddaughter! I feel so blessed to have been there to help my daughters and to have been there to support them in any way I could!! I certainly hope that your mom will be able to have that honor and privilege too!
    I believe that God will make that possible! I will believe it! Thanks for sharing this because when we have a lot of people praying for it.... When 2 or more pray....
    God Bless and take care.
    Love, your sister in Christ,

    Vehicle breakdowns are so bad, them seem to just snowball :(( Sorry for your parents. I think it would be nice if you could provide for your Mom to come be with you, it would be a break for her from this depressing situation as well as give her something positive to look forward to. I hope something good comes their way soon..
