BLUEBIRD... Blessed are those who wait on HIM. by Laurie Pace


Yet the Lord longs to be gracious to you;
    therefore he will rise up to show you compassion.
For the Lord is a God of justice.
    Blessed are all who wait for him!" Isaiah 30:18

RedBird Sings in the Bluebird. 
"Blessed are all who wait for him!"

Waiting through the winter and the Spring... and suddenly the appearance of Redbirds (Cardinals) in my back yard.  I grabbed a photo here and there as we had not seen them in the past few years of the lock down. 

As we neared Mothers Day, Morgan took me out car shopping and I tried out a new Mercedes, another Range Rover...and two weeks ago, Stacey promised a trip to the Freeman Hyundai where they had purchased five cars. Justin also drives a Hyundai. Life happens and Stacey has been very busy.  
$142 for one tank of gas for our Ram
What spurred this sudden push? Our youngest son borrowed our truck and drove on a trip to pick up some furniture from east Texas.  When he brought the truck back it only had 48 miles left in the tank. We gassed it up and it was $142.  ONE TANK of GAS and that is our grocery bill each week.... they are equal. 

Terry took me to the dealership right after we gassed up. Not sure if you know this, but there are NO CARS on the lot in very many dealerships.  This one had a smattering of cars out front. Might have been 7 or 8.  Inside the dealership there were two more.  Freeman Hyundai is a major role in this story. Stacey had spoken highly of this dealership over the years. There was NO WHERE to test drive the cars. The freeway was totally under construction. I drove in rectangles around a two block area for the next hour and a half. The Santa Fe was nice but I wanted a blue one with tan interior.  I have learned over the past six months there is no 'getting' exactly what you want unless you can wait up to six months. 


We left after we realized the only Santa Fe blue one with white interior had sold ten min before we arrived.  Remember yesterday's story about WAIT UPON THE LORD...and the Red Bird.  There were signs everywhere around me over the next 8 hours and signs that led me directly to my destination.  

   The Redbirds were in the back yard after we got home

The call came from Stacey that she found a Ford Explorer Blue with white interior in Southwest Ft Worth that they were just unloading. (Which means it could be sold anytime and we had to head that way.). Before we could leave, I received a text from "Patrick" from Freeman Hyundai.  He said he had a Tucson in that was blue with White Interior.  It had only been two hours.  Stacey pulled up to get me and I texted Patrick back... send photos... and they came... blue with white... and we headed down there.  I had not driven the Tucson.

As we arrived... we found out the new cars were not arriving for a week but we could drive a Tucson and then leave a deposit for that particular car.  There was a pretty blue car inside the dealership that I had not looked at. What I had looked at was online and it was the Tucson was ranked over the Santa Fe. It was ranked over all SUV's close in size by almost ever review.  Next and last hurdle... I have not driven a car in five years. Not my cup of tea... but right there in the Dealership was a blue Tucson with black/grey interior. It was a Limited maxed out.  I slid into the seat and instantly felt at home. I bought the car. Stacey laughed happily and we tag teamed home me following her. It was getting dark and I cannot see at night...but God was with us and it RAINED on us. We need rain so badly here in this area...and God placed this rain cloud over us and I knew there would be a rainbow from it. 

Saturday Morning at Freeman Hyundai

I named the car BlueBird. As you can see by the photos... she is blue!

He will also send you rain for the seed you sow in the ground, and the food that comes from the land will be rich and plentiful. In that day your cattle will graze in broad meadows." Isaiah 30:23
