blessings in disguise.

inspiration: taking time to reflect on the last six months of my life.

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven" -Ecclesiastes 3:1

...and this morning was the time that Adrian (my car) died -- well technically it was last night, but we didn't know how bad she was til this morning. (you can read what happened last night HERE).

but this turned out to be a blessing in disguise because it meant that i was able to get a new car :)

2011 Ford Fiesta.
brand spanking new :)

i'm excited.

but this is nothing in comparison to the grand scheme of the last 6 months:

  • went on my first missions trip
  • got a "big girl" job!
  • moved to South Carolina
  • found an awesome church
  • made new friends here in charleston :)
  • bought a new car!

it's amazing how much God has truly, truly provided :)

i'm so thankful for everything.
i've had plenty of bad days and i will have plenty more in the future.
but without all the bad days, i wouldn't be able to appreciate all the good ones.

God truly does work out EVERYTHING for the good of those who love Him :)
(Romans 8:28)

So, anyone have any suggestions for a name for my new sweet ride?
preferably something fun. and spanish. (since it IS a Fiesta and all) :)
if i pick your name, you could win something. i don't know what yet. but something.


  1. Keeping with the name of the prior car and the spanish theme. You could name your car Adriana.

  2. haha. i've already named her "Lola".
    Adrian was "Adrian" because my truck before that was "Rocky".
