I own a car now!



On 29th October I officially bought the biggest thing I have ever bought. My car! (Obviously I'm not able to pay for it, so thanks Grandpa/Family!) The car is already in Germany, so they dealer might get it around the 15th November and once they have cleaned, sorted out the official stuff and put on the winter tires I should get it around the 19th. I already have my license plate (in Germany you can either get a random number, or pay for one you want). My initials and four numbers, my birthday and the one from my dad. It looks like "S - XY - 1234". 

I had to get the option with the sat-nav and the better radio (DAB) because the model without it would have a delivery date of March 2019 in the colour I wanted. 

The car is made in Japan. Which I think is totally cool. A real Japanese car. Now the third one in our family. To bust the myth that we all drive around in German cars. Nope, you pay so much more for so much less. For real, for example a Volkswagen with the same stuff in it as my Jazz would cost at least 3.000€ more. And everything else, like changing tires or service is also more expensive. 

So the last wait period has begun! The only thing I have or rather my Dad has to do is figure out the insurance stuff. The insurance runs on my Mum because it is cheaper that way. Oh, and pay once the car is here. 💸

      A comment on today's post re: TJFW reads:

       "Wow you defeated Satan"

      And Lori's reply:

      The Transformed Wife:  She sure did! She knew what was at stake and was willing to suffer in order to win her husband to the Lord and His ways.


      No, this woman did not "defeat Satan" - no woman can defeat Satan.  Again, there is no mention of the power of JESUS CHRIST here, which is disturbing because the inference is that the WOMAN "saved" her husband/marriage by "suffering"...a total setup for abuse to continue/worsen.


      Further, it is clearly mentioned in the words of TJFW in the previous post that her husband IS A BELIEVER...so exactly how did TJFW "suffer in order to win her husband to the Lord and His ways" IF her husband was already a believer (Christian).


      Although my husband is a believer, I knew it would take an act of the Holy Spirit for him to overcome his addiction and subsequent struggle with anger and control. Still, I Peter 3:1,2 kept rising up in my heart. If unbelieving husbands can be won over without words by the behavior of their wives, could the Lord use me in that same way to help point my believing husband back to Him?

      Why exactly did TJFW suffer?

      I seem to have missed it.    If this man was a believer, according to Lori's theology, he was already a "new creation - all things are become new". How could this new creation believer be addicted to porn, controlling, abusive and micro-managing with rage?

      That doesn't sound like all things new to me.

      I swear people say this about every single Duggar couple who gets married. :pb_lol:

      I dunno. There was plenty of snark about the Joshley face eating, the DerDip, and the awkward yet steamy Siren kiss. I don't remember Joystin, or JoKen, or JinJer, and Benessa had theirs in private (props to them).

      Yep, Lori has a big mouth.

      So it looks liked the half-assed little shack Josh was selling cars out of got busted. And in typical Duggar fashion he ignored the warnings until the last second. Why does this not surprise me in the least?

      I'm super keen to throw a big party for my future littles, and I will probably turn to Instagram for ideas 🤣 I don't think it would've been too hard when they're used to cooking for a crowd and a lot of the treats were quick/simple (lots of lollies, popcorn and 'ballerinas' (marshmallows on sticks)). That sugar crash with four under four though... definitely not envying that!

      It was mentioned they get welfare... how the heck did they justify/manage to buy a brand new pink guitar for their four year old??? Like yeah sure teach them music, but those things aren't cheap. Surely they had an old one lying around that they could paint pink?
