A few months ago, our 1999 Ford Taurus started running rough. Initially, I thought of spark plugs and engine tune-up. We did a few things, got it running slightly better, but for the last couple months it has still wanted to die whenever it idles, with the exception of a cold-start, when it would rev [...]
Well, the last pic, in which the new van is displayed, showed a cemetery visible. I thought it warranted a little explanation (plus I wanted to test using pictures some more). Here’s the same place from a different angle.
The chapel in the background is Hicks Chapel. Laurel’s ggpa and ggma used to attend [...]
Here’s the old van, after the wreck… you can see the damage to the frame and the radiator (which prevented us from driving it far).
And here’s the new Van, which we still owe a couple thousand on, and have to get tagged (which means a basic tune-up to pass emissions).

Finally! I uploaded sermons for Sept 16 through Nov 4…. I guess it had been a while. I found out that my attempts to FTP the sermons up to had been blocked by my firewall. A little more determination earlier would have been fantastic!

But, it’s been a good day overall.
We decided to go ahead and move forward on the van that was available… after a good day’s work with Wayne, we stopped by to pick it up, but it wasn’t quite ready for us, so hopefully we can get it tomorrow. He hasn’t found the brackets for [...]
Well, we’d like to drive home on the 8th of November. But we have this issue… our van is totalled and in Nashville. I am fully confident that God has made a way for us to get back home, but we would appreciate your prayers for wisdom as we seek His will.
Just to give [...]
…and I finally have a chance to log in to the website.
We were headed from St Louis to near Franklin, NC. Day before yesterday, in Nashville (about 9:30, rainy and slick) we got in a wreck. Our 15 passenger van was totalled. Fortunately we were near a motel and were able to drive there [...]
