Update on our stolen car

I’m home from DC! Hooray!!!! Thanking God for a safe trip…

And here’s another thing I’m thankful for — answered prayer!

Thursday morning when we left the house for Albert to drive me to the airport, we walked out and our car was missing! We called the police, reporting a stolen car.

Prayed prayed prayed we would get it back.

Tonight on the way home from the airport Albert gave me the rundown on all the options of getting a new car. All expensive. I thought we should wait and see if God would answer our prayer.

Tonight, the phone rang. It was the Davis Police Department.

The person said, “Is it possible you drove your car to Target to go shopping and then walked home?”

WE HAD LEFT THE CAR IN THE TARGET SHOPPING LOT!

We had driven the car because it was really smokey out when we went for a date… and Albert has problems with smoke. But then we forgot and walked home! The car has been sitting by its lonesome self in the Target shopping lot the last 3 days!

I guess this is what happens when 1. You live 2 blocks from Target. 2. You are extremely forgetful (me). and 3. God answers prayer!

I love it when answers to prayer just are never what you think they will be! Our God has a sense of humor! 🙂

    Change ‘if’ to ‘of’. Darn auto-correct spelling.

    Oh, that is funny. I told Nathan, and he told me an even funnier story. One of his friends and his wife reported their car stolen. A week later, he and his coworkers to Subway to eat lunch and saw his car in the parking lot! They had the brilliant idea to stake it out – they hid around and waited, planning on pouncing on the person who got in the car. They waited for an hour and a half – nothing happened, and they finally had to go back to work. Later in the afternoon, he remembered that he and his wife had driven to Subway a week before – right before their car went missing. They had left it there!
