Godcidences (had to make up that word to explain what keeps happening)

11:27 – Went to Midland to get the right seal for the transmission first thing this morning. It cost $14.00 less than the other one so that was a blessing. When I walked out there was a fella looking at the big diesel for it has a for sale sign in it. He asked a few questions and when I told him I knew God he got a big smile on his face and shook my hand. Learning I was from Stanton he insisted I follow him and meet his pastor, who lived halfway between there and Midland. Said he felt an urgency in his spirit for me to do that. They are making a church out of an old nursing home in Midland and it involved ministering to the homeless, down and out, and drug addicts. That always gets my attention so I agreed to go meet the guy. Told him that first I needed to get some diesel fuel for the beast. He asked how much I was going to get and if I had money for it. I told him twenty bucks worth and he curiously asked if I had twenty bucks. A strange question to ask, so I said I had thirty in the bank and was going to use my bank card, only getting twenty so there was some left in the bank. He asked me to follow him to the gas station where he paid for forty dollars worth of fuel. Ok, that’s a blessing out of the blue along with getting fourteen bucks back on the transmission seal.

I followed him to the pastors house and come to find out it’s the same guy who installed our electricity and the hot water tank for us three years ago. Can’t remember his name, Dale I think but that’s not clear. His company is A&D Electric. He’s one of the people we met from Steve and Janie, back when Steve and Janie were still talking to us. There is a reason for everything that happens so I wait and wonder to see what will come of this unusual set of circumstances.

It’s almost noon already and there is lots to do. I must crawl under the truck and see if I can get it running. That would be real nice. Wanted to replace the transmission filter but don’t have time right now. We need the truck running so I can have it available when Ron and Paula fly in next week. We are so looking forward to seeing them. I’ll fix a bite to eat, because it’s smart and I’m supposed to, and get to work.

I may be wrong about the name, Bob. Joe's business is citywide electric....

Don't know but I go through life not knowing a lot of details like someone's name. Do know it's A&D Electric. Regardless he's blessed us in the past and that I won't forget.
