"Really?" oh "REALLY?????"

For some of you the title of this post says it all.   We have been going through a season of one thing after another that leave you saying, "Really?"

Last Monday the water pump started out on DH truck.  So he got it fixed Tue.   Then Friday morning he went to head to work and heard clunk clunk clunk.  He figured he got a cat.  No, the pulley wheel for the belts fell off under the hood.  Seems the bolt holding it on broke.   So he took mine to work.  That was one of those really?? moments.  

He had to take mine to a meeting yesterday in DFW.  He met us at church today.   When we left from Church about 4:00 today DH was in the lead.  I had to wait on kids to load up.  About a mile maybe 2 from where we church he was stopped turned around.  I saw a deer on the other side for the road.  Sure enough  he had been hit by a deer.  Yes, I said my truck got hit by a deer.   If he had hit the deer it wouldn't have been a big deal we have grill guards just for that. Oh no the deer hit passenger side just in front of the mirror took it off cracked the side window in the front then shattered the back passenger window and left a few more dents along the rest of the side.

He had  brought a trailer home to take his truck to town.  Guess he will get a cool ride in tomorrow and hope they can get his out of the shop same day.   That will just leave this one in the shop.   I don't get to drive it as much as I would like.  I could have drove it Friday, and again tomorrow.   Such is life.  No one was hurt, I am thankful!  We have enough trucks that no one is left without. 

Like I said it has been a season of what next, and really????  Lots of strange things like this.  Some more heartbreaking and sad but still just leaving you going "Really??? " and "What next??"  Much with the adoptions and new agency.   Some I can just look at know it is the enemy and laugh, some are harder to laugh at. 

Prayers please that as we walk this as faithful as possible and without falling into disobedience to God our season of strange, weired, sad and frustrating stuff will be coming to an end. 

Other news is Retreat planning is going great!  I am so excited about what is happening and all the ladies that are coming.  It is looking to be amazing and fun and exciting.   Please also pray for all the ladies and their families that are coming.  Also all of those that are working to put it on and their families need prayer as we prepare for great things.
