Life is as it's been for a while now: no job, lots of packing and cleaning and tryin to get the house to show and (hopefully) sell, and not a whole lot else. Someone decided to buy my car for $2300 (less than the $2500 it would have been nice to get, but it's still better than $2000 or less. The actual transaction should occur on Friday, so I have "Sylvia" (so named because she's a 240SX and quite similar to her Silvia cousins; previously known as Christine) until then. I'm hoping to be able to find a good car I can afford as soon as we move; one that's more fuel-efficient than my 240 (I estimate I get 20-24 mpg in it), and one that doesn't cost me a fortune in repairs and replacement parts and labor.
Since I haven't been out taking interesting photos with my camera, here's an iPhone pic I got some time ago (and used an Instagram filter on)...it's as if God was reaching through the clouds to the world below...
In the darkest days of your life, when the clouds are close and grim,
Look to the heavens, to the One who can calm any storm, the One who the skies and sea obeyed and became still at his command.
There is faith that can move mountains, and the sky is always darkest before the dawn; when all seems lost, the sun may shine through the clouds in your life and melt the icy darkness in your soul.
Methinks this has much room for improvement...but as it was written on the spot, perhaps I may do better with time and practice.
