Today brought some very unexpected surprises.

I am still out of a job, and have no prospects there. However, God has provided for me financially, and I now have more than enough money to stay caught up on my bills and stay afloat for awhile until I find work.

The first surprise came in the form of a phone call. I didn't feel like talking on the phone, so I let my voice mail pick it up. Later, when I checked, it turned out to be a message from the general manager of a car dealership with whom I've been feuding for about a year. I returned my car to them last December, and have been fighting for six months to get a refund on my service contract. Nearly a month ago, I got the state attorney general's office involved, but had not heard anything. Well, today, the general manager called, said they had recieved my complaint from the AG's office, and I could come in and sign for my refund.

So, I went in, and I was told they had no idea I had been asking for the refund, yadda yadda yadda...and the end result is, I am getting back the full refund, not being charged for the use of the vehicle for the time I had it. Woohoo!!

That, coupled with my paycheck and vacation pay coming next Friday, will be very helpful.

I also received a letter from the college today regarding my financial aid, and my classes for the fall semester are taken care of.

All in all, a day of unexpectedly wonderful things. It's kind of sad when I am surprised that God is actually true to His word.

I did see Herbie tonight, but we did not talk very much. I can't figure him out. Hot and cold. But that's okay. I've got other things to deal with at the moment.

Yes, that sounds familiar! God has brought unexpected resolve to forgotten issues in my life many times. I wonder if he makes us forget just so he can see the look on our faces when he surprises us!

Well, of course, there's exercising our faith, too. ;)
