Donny's Ramblings

And So It Begins…

5 Comments

On several occasions I’ve mentioned that my “possessions” will soon be history. If my house doesn’t sell, it will be foreclosed upon. Repossession of at least one vehicle is unavoidable. Wherever I go to live next will undoubtedly be too small to accommodate all the things that currently take up space in my home. Belinda has first choice at whatever she wishes to take with her. After she’s picked through everything I’ll probably have a yard sale and put the rest in storage somewhere.

Oh, and see that “Hosted By Swiftwill” section at the top of the right column? That link is part of a deal I made just earlier today with my hosting company because I can’t afford to pay attention right now, much less web hosting. Swiftwill is a great company and agreed to allow me a certain amount of bandwidth in exchange for the advertising link. If you’re searching for hosting, please honor their generosity by at least giving them a shot to earn your business.

And so it begins…

Today I had a long conversation with the bank who holds the title on my Chevy 2500 Duramax pickup. I’d be taking it to them tomorrow if I wasn’t going to be on a plane to Michigan. It came down to a choice between keeping the truck or keeping the Honda Accord I purchased in July. The Accord was purchased brand new, with better fuel economy and a lower monthly payment, so the choice wasn’t a difficult one. Now let’s hope I can keep making the payments on it while continuing to make my child support and cost of living payments.

My credit report will soon show a voluntary repossession for the Chevy. Am I bummed? Maybe a little. But it’s only a truck. And credit rebounds over time. Life goes on.

Tomorrow I fly to Grand Rapids. Saturday and Sunday I’ll be speaking to hundreds of people. I choose to focus on those events, rather than this one. God can use my story to change lives this weekend and I’ll be honored and blessed if he does so.

    A friend of mine from work always tells me.. Don’t sweat the small stuff …and it’s ALL small stuff.

  2. I like how you said, “And credit rebounds over time. Life goes on.” That’s a great attitude to have in what could be a seemingly overwhelming situation. That really reminded now to sweat my finacial problems. Thanks. Life does go on. Take care. πŸ™‚
