We had a wonderful time last Sunday at Truth Baptist Church in Mechanicsville, VA with Pastor Erik Hastings and my friend Pastor Aaron Kuschel! It was great to catch up with some faithful supporters and ministry partners!
On the way home Monday, Labor Day, as we drove south on i95 in NC, we heard a pop in our car, then some dash lights came on indicating that our stabilitrak needed to be serviced. We did a quick google search to find out that it is common and likely due to the rain that we had driven through from Hurricane Dorian.
About an hour later, however, we heard a grinding under the driver side floorboard and started to feel some vibration. I called my friend Brad at Goodyear and he said it sounded like a wheel bearing and to take it easy, but we should be alright if it still felt solid.
Then, about 30 minutes from home, it happened! A louder pop followed by a jerk of the wheel and very hard vibration. We pulled off the exit (which also happened to be the main highway into our town) and stopped. The wheel bearing completely broke, did some damage to the tire, breaks, and rotors, and the sway bar links! Brad said that had we gone much further, our entire wheel could have come off!
We had it towed into Goodyear, free thanks to GEICO, and it was repaired the next day! I am guilty of often taking for granted just how the Lord not only provides, but protects our family! I want to take this moment to stop and give Him praise for all the blessings He has bestowed upon my life! I am one blessed man!
