Look What God Gave Us!



And those are the three kids who prayed every night before bedtime that God would give us the "very best car in the store."  And I think God answered those prayers because this one was the very best in the store we bought it from! {And thank you to those who were praying with us!}

[For those who are interested, this is a Russian-made car, a 2011 "Lada Universal."]

  6. It's just beautiful, Jolene! (And I love the color, don't you?!--SMILE!)

    When we bought our car (in Forney), I'd look out the window and look at it and think, "God gave that to us!" Do you do the same thing?!

    Love you and am sooo happy for you!

    Hugs from far away!

  10. Dear Anonymous,

    I do drive in Ukraine, but, yes, it is a scary thing for me! Most people here do not use car seats since it is not a law, but we have always used them for our smaller children. God is good!
