so i prayed and asked God to provide for exactly what he wanted and that i wasnt going to worry about the rest.
so, like, 5 minutes later it occurred to me that i might be able to sell my half functioning 70's road bike that was sitting in the garage that i got for free a year ago from one of my buddies. i got up and posted an ad on craigslist in the middle of the night and asked God to sell the bike for me. i woke up this morning with 4 emails from people who wanted to buy it, the first email i got being from one of the guys that i know from the calvary chapel here. he responded to the ad 5 minutes after i posted it and ended up buying the bike for 40 dollars. i think it was a fair price for a half functioning bike, and plus i can add the 40 to the 25 i have saved for my gas fund...
God is so, so lovely and faithful.
i know 3 people in this town and happened to sell my bike to one of them in record time.
the bad news is that i broke my big 2 person coffee press this morning that i got for real cheap at ross a couple years ago and spilled coffee sludge everywhere. so now i have a stained carpet and a 1 cup coffee press that i bought at target shortly after the incident. sigh. you just cant get ahead sometimes (i didnt use my bike money for the coffee press, i'll have you know :)
