you can't start a fire without a spark

Jul 30, 2012

Hello everyone! Happy Monday morning to you! I hope your day is going great, mine is going...weird. Last night at around 9pm my husband, who was at the Gym, called me and said, "Hey, I need you to come to the gym, the car's on fire."


That;s right, my very beloved carolla. The Car whose praises I would sing unrelentingly, burst into flames. While my husband was in the car!! I'm trying not to think about how close I was losing the love of my life, because was ON HIS WAY TO THE GAS STATION! Thankfully, he never made it out of the parking lot of the gym. The Lord totally had this whole situation under control. Here's why:

1) The car stopped in a part of the parking lot where no one was around

2) Nathan had plenty of time to get out of the car and get to safety

3) It caught fire in the parking lot, and not while we were driving on the Freeway from Stockton!

This picture is extremely difficult to see, but I took it with my cheap-o cell phone. The front of the car is totally burnt out and melted. The Hood had to be cut open for the fire department to put out the fire. The car is completely totalled. I spent about 30 minutes on the phone this morning with my dad getting the claim together. Good greif. What a mess.

Anyways, what happens after this is pretty vague at this point. Luckily, this will probably be covered by my insurance as a "total", and we'll get a check for the value of the car. What the value of a 1998 Toyota Carolla LE is, I'm not overly sure, either way, the Lord is taking care of all of this. The real bummer is... My dad just washed it!

Anyways, thats about it for me today! If you're thinking about, I start work in literally 6 days, and I'm going to need a vehicle, because I have to commute. If you could pray for Nathan and I that something works out quickly, that would be awesome. Adventure is always chasing us! See you soon!


  1. Just glad that nobody was hurt! Good luck finding transport to get to work, our car is always breaking down when I need to get to college!

  2. lovely blog. please check out my newest post <3

  3. Many new things happening in your life at once. It can be unsettling. There are many things to be grateful for the car can easily be replaced.

  4. So glad no one was hurt. Cars can be replaced, but people can't. Take care!
