Christopher's 19th birthday is this weekend and he received a very special birthday present today... the car he drives back. No cost... zip.
Our mechanic couldn't figure out why the check engine light stayed on and why it developed that horrible screeching sound that sent it to the car doctor in the first place. He did say the one thing that kept showing up on "whatever computer gadget" he uses with the car was a problem with the transmission.
So, after sitting at our mechanic's place for over a week (we forgot to pick it up before he went on vacation), we drove the car over to the transmission doctor who has had it about a week. We received a phone call this morning. He found a slight problem with a wire that he was able to fix quickly but otherwise, he had no idea what had gone wrong AND the car wasn't making the noise, anymore.
Amazing... neither our mechanic or the transmission shop charged us even though both had put in a great deal of time trying to find the problem.
He did say to tell Christopher if he was driving and the noise started again, to swing by their shop but otherwise... drive it.
Sometimes God provides by bringing in financial provision. Sometimes he just fixes the problem, or so it seems.
... and people wonder why I'm always curious how God is going to work next.
