New Cars Have to be Serviced.

At some point, one has to buy another car, because the old, favorite will not go any further. Ed drove his car to 350,000 miles before it stopped running. It had been faithful to drive everywhere and beyond. So he went car shopping, and we bought a Ford. They have been around for a long time. This one was on sale. We make payments on it, and today was Ed’s time to go see how his car is doing by the mechanics. They catch anything that is wrong, and it is under warranty. We are not rich, but there was no choice far as what to purchase.

So what has he done with his car? Many pastoral things. He has given rides to those who needed therapy, and encouragement in mental, stability. He has taken people to their appointments, and come back to get them, and take them home. He has given people rides to church, and to their jobs.He is available with his car, because it is his car. I went with him to pick it out, but I knew Ed needed a car for riding on his own, and helping people. He has been, and he  faithfully gets the oil changed, and gets it through the new car tests.

We have never owned a Ford. I am impressed with the service, and smiles on the lot. I believe every time we come on the lot there is a smile from someone. Smiles go a long way, and I will say that when you smile, you really have that smile on the inside also. It is nice having a car that won’t break down on the freeway. Service is a key to maintaining the car, and yes it is one of those disciplines of life.

I love to paint,write,make up my own recipes, and sing. I write poetry, songs, and books. I began to paint, because my sister left me art supplies, and I needed to use them. She encouraged anyone to paint.Then she died of cancer. I began to paint more, because I was grieving over her death. As I painted I came out of my gloom, and grief. She was a wonderful, artist. I continue to paint. Recently I have been writing my, fourth, novel. It is about life for a couple who live in a small, town. There is one, adventure after another, in this book. I make no apology for writing Christian novels. I believe there is an audience for Christian literature that is written in this century! My prayer is that after reading it, people will want to read the Word of God, and commit to Christ. I pray over the text, and type. My son encouraged me to join Word Press.com, and he set up my first blog which we called Rubies Corner's Blog. I have other blogs which I have left open, but the largest, blog at this point is Rubies Corner's Blog. My book is being written on rubiesdonovels which is another blog. I am currently writing my fourth, book.. I hope to publish eventually. I am a retired school teacher. My husband is pastor of Christ Fellowship in Ringgold, Georgia. We have been there over thirty, years. I write about my church, and about life from a Christian, perspective as a pastor's wife. Life has become very, interesting, and busy since I resigned from my last job. I consider myself retired, but I paint frequently. My Gravatar shows one, painting that I did several years ago. The plant cost over thirty dollars. I painted on this one for a while. I have another site that has more art work. It is on deviantArt under RSC3. I have over 200 drawings there. Some were finished on the computer with the mouse. Enjoy.
