God's Provision of a Van

So we've been praying for some time that God would provide with a van. Knowing that if our family increased we would need a little more space than our car could offer. We have been looking for a Toyota Sienna but found they were hard to get and rather expensive because they were such good vans, they hold their value to the end. We didn't really pursue it hard until recently as the need became more urgent with our family increasing! We had followed up on a couple leads but they all were dead ends and this past weekend we were going to look at a van in Richmond but it sold before our appointment. So we just told the Lord we would wait on His timing and we knew He had the perfect van from the perfect person for the perfect price. So we left it in His hands and all of a sudden things moved into place for us to get a van all on Sunday afternoon. It was being sold by someone known by both sides of our family, it was the only Sienna he had and he doesn't even usually get Toyotas, it was right at the right price, it looks amazing and it isn't white!!! (That was a huge thing for me.) It was a total blessing from the Lord. We brought it home on Sunday and enjoyed the excitement of discovering all the little added blessings the van has! We are overwhelmed with God's provision...there is plenty of room for three carseats! And we can take other people places as well! So yes, in case you haven't heard we are expecting baby number three! Due in September...we are super thrilled with this blessing!
Our new van!

  3. YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) Now when I come to visit you your poor children don't have to deal with me taking up their sitting room. ;)I don't know if you're looking for names but I LOVE the name Skylark. Most people hate it but I'm determined to at least make it a middle name for one of my children.

  5. Stephanie, yes it is to Anthony. We are so happy. He is just a wonderful guy. They haven't set a date yet but it will probably be next year. She graduates in December so I know she wants to wait until that is done.
