Thanks to those of you who have been praying for my "situation". Here's the scoop.... A while back we purchased a Yukon XL-we've long needed extra space...I realize it was not the green thing to do but it's better than always having to take 2 vehicles because our kids couldn't invite their friends along...I digress...said Yukon was a steal of a deal having only 29K miles and all the bells and whistles, it was the right color and my lovely wife liked the name Yukon better than Suburban.
We fought off stiff competition from other buyers and the owner, who had purchased the car for use by an employee, liked my story and wanted to sell to us even though I was offering below her asking price and what another guy was willing to pay.
At the bank we learned that title listed the company and the former employee as the owners...PROBLEM...she was unaware of this....BIGGER PROBLEM....former employee left on tense terms. Not to worry we were informed that former employee was willing to sign the necessary documents releasing the title so our bank lady readied the paper work and we were driving with plenty of space.
After driving the car for four months I learned that the former employee hadn't signed the papers, he hadn't responded to any letters requesting his signature. WORSE YET...business owner who said he was agreeable and would sign the papers wasn't returning calls, emails or letters. EVEN WORSE THAN THAT....the registration sticker expires in Jan 2008. It was shaping up to be the perfect storm of used car ownership...I could find myself paying for a car that I couldn't drive.
OK, confession time: I'm not good in moments like these. I tend to doomsday-think the worst-imagine that it will never work out.
I ran across the verse mentioned in the previous post and kept asking God to intervene and work. I tend to be more of a worrier than a prayer warrior-just pulling back the curtain a little. Over the next few days and hours when I was tempted to stress and worry I would pray....God change their attitudes...God work....God resolve this situation....and yes I worried a little too.
Last Thursday I woke up early and began searching for the guy who needed to sign the document...I googled him...no luck. Out of desperation I decided to Yahoo him.....HIT!
I found his picture, place of business and phone number....he was just across town...down the street from my bank and yada yada yada I should be getting the registration sticker this Thursday and the title will now be in my name.
