Want To See My "New To Me" Ride?

Isn't it pretty?

God lead us to a friend who sells cars for Saturn. We bought it just about Blue Book value for excellent condition. It is a very nice vehicle. We always buy used for two basic reasons. One - we can't afford what they want for new cars and two - you get better value buying used. Did I mention that our little ones are delighted? There is a dvd player in the van. It's a whole new world for us!

It was such an answer to prayer. We are so thankful. It drives very nicely and gets great fuel mileage! Our Astro got about 12-14 mpg.

Thanks for your prayers on our behalf!


  1. I'll probably still be looking for the Astrovan on the road, but I'll get used to it.

    Praising the Lord with you, for HIS wonderful provision!


  2. Yay! I love it! Praise God!
    I'd love the DVD player too! If it were ours i'd make Geoff drive everywhere and i'd be in the back with the kids! =)

  3. That is wonderful! God provides!! Our neighbors had that van and loved it!! We wouldnt buy new either..Ryan and I LOVE not having car payments!

  4. Nice! Very nice! I'm happy you found something that will work well for your family.

  5. Beautiful! I'm happy you found something with good gas mileage that works for you!


  6. i like it its purty ha ha


  7. what a great gift from the Lord...
    happy for all of you...
