{September 16, 2013}   God works at the DMV

I’m Legal!!!

Woot! Woot!!!

Not that I was driving on the low-low.

Ummmm, no, not me.

Ahem.

But now I’m legal.

After paying off over $500 of court fees.

And completing the $30 VASAP class  (yeah, I don’t even drink or smoke, no less use any other drugs but it was mandatory).

I finally borrowed a car and hitched myself up to the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles to take the written and driving test.

So there I am, quietly reviewing the driver’s manual, when my number is called unexpectedly fast.

Like 10 minutes fast!

Up to the counter I go.

Paperwork check.

Eye check.

Photo taken.

And then she searches the computer…

…and searches the computer…

…and searches the computer.

She then asks me if I had ever had a license in Virginia.

Yes, Virginia is the only place that I have ever held a license.

So back to searching she goes.

I patiently wait while she is searching quietly humming My God is Awesome.

And still she could not find where I am suppose to take the test.

Eventually, she asks me who told me that I was suppose to take a driving test.

“I just assumed,” I reply.

I vaguely remember some rule that if you haven’t held a license for longer than a year, than you have to take a test.

So back to searching she goes.

And back to humming I go.

Finally, she prints out a paper and tells me to initial and sign.

I do and prepare to sit down to study some more when she says the magic words:

“Your license will come in the mail in about 10 days. Have a nice day.”

I be all legal, y’all!

I be all LEGAL!!!

Thank you Department of Motor Vehicles VA!

Although I still get a little fidgety every time I see a cop.

Think I’ll ever shake those nerves?

Not that I was ever driving without a license.

Oh, no, not me…..

{September 11, 2012}   Sometimes God yells NO!!!

Sometimes God whispers.

And sometimes God yells NO! in no uncertain terms.

Last week, I was seriously comtemplating becoming a full time transcriptionist in lieu of being a professional blogger.

The very next day, I awoke with an ear ache that precluded me being able to hear and type.

So, I put off doing any work until I got better.

But apparently putting it off was not good enough.

The next day my son upgraded my computer to Windows 7.

But, guess what, the audio controls were gone.

That’s right….no sound….no even with headphones….

No sound = no transcription.

Alrighty then…

There are other options….ie, using one of the kids’ laptops while they are in school.

Uh huh…

Only, I awoke with the carpal tunnel in my left hand so, yeah, no typing…

And that was when I realized that maybe God is putting his foot down on the subject.

I am meant to be a blogger.

And if I want a more steady income, then I need to actually work harder at being a professional blogger.

End of discussion.

And how do I know that I am on the right path.

Because as soon as I made the decision….

….my ear stopped aching…

…my son fixed the computer…

…and my carpal tunnel is gone…

Case closed.

So instead of doing blogging part time and becoming a full time transcriptionist, I have reversed the plan and I am back to being a full time blogger and doing transcription part time.

For one thing, I would hate to see what God would do to me next if I continue to be such a block head. Lol.

{August 14, 2012}   God works wonders in one week

I have a friend who has been struggling from homelessness for over two years.

Not the kind of homeliness that you are probably picturing…

Dirty with a shopping cart sleeping under a bridge.

No, this is the kind of homeliness that practically goes unnoticed in society.

One of a hard working mother who just cannot seem to save up enough to pay a deposit so she moves her and her kids from friend’s to friend’s house.

But on this faithful Sunday, our Pastor calls a prophecy.

He says that he doesn’t know who he is talking to but the person who has been struggling for two years and still has been faithful to God, that person’s season of hardship is over.

On that very Monday, she gets notice from her social worker that they can pay her first month’s rent and deposit.

That very day she calls landlords and finds one just down the street from me who is aware of and takes that type of payment.

By the evening, we have viewed the apartment and she has completed the application.

By that Tuesday evening, he has confirmed her income and approved her for the apartment.

By that Wednesday, social services has written a promissary note and she has keys!!!

For the first time in Years!!

But is God done?

Nope!

On Thursday, the water is on.

But there is a problem of an overdue electric bill.

And do you think that a $600 power bill can stop my God.

NOPE!

Because God put it on the heart of just one of the dozen of customer service workers at dom.com to turn on her power if she can pay just $200 of that bill.

And here’s the kicker…the power was on even before she made the payment.

Yep, on Thursday night, she and her three daughters spent their very first night in the comfort and security of their own home!!

On Saturday, with the help of an Explorer, Expedition, and a pickup truck, her furniture was moved in her new home and out of storage.

A new home in one week.

From one Sunday to the next, you went from homeless to being a tenant in good standing.

You can’t tell me there is no God and that my God ain’t good!!!
