my new car

As I shared last month, I had to say goodbye to my beloved Jeep, "Proey" due to a lot of practical reasons of how much it was going to cost financially to fix her up. The car was just a "car"  but there was a ton of significance to it (includingthe connection and namesake) of the previous owners and friends, @prestonflynt and @zoflynt. So I have been without a car since then and with the school year quickly approaching... have been praying like crazy for the Lord to provide. 

Needless to say I was hunting used cars around the country and getting told that in this market there would be "no hope" because of the run on used cars. I looked at MANY and traveled to several places hours away and in different states but nothing was working out in my price range (looking at you @toyotausa Sequoia) and with the car to fit some practical needs and size...until last week. 

I am so grateful for this used @toyota RAV4 that had incredible low mileage, and was a good height for this tall girl. *smiles* I miss the Jeep, and in many ways think I am a Jeep girl, but this car is a beautiful provision that I don't take for granted...and is a tender reminder of how, even when people say things are impossible, the right thing comes along.

Y'all know my love of naming my cars, but I am struggling to come up with a name. Any suggestions? I will send a Starbucks giftcard to the answer I love the most!
