We have been told several times that we need to have a cash reserve at home. Well let me tell you my experience. This summer we were able to put aside a few hundred dollars. We knew that we would need it at some point. Two weeks ago we ran into a problem with my van, our rear axle broke. We were not sure what to do. We looked around and found a guy that Reg knew and he had a complete axle rear end (etc.) for my van. When he told us what the price was it just happened to be the exact amount that we had saved. Bingo the Lord loves me for some reason. On top of that in just two weeks we have been able to replace the amount and more.
P.S. I have a note to self when taking out the drive line it is a good idea to block the wheels. This was a funny thing. Stephen was taking off the drive line. He disconnected the bolts and pounded of the drive line. Then the van started to roll backwards. Down the hill into the trees. Thus the note to self.
