It happened after I got out of St. Francis Hospital to receive a pacemaker. The doctor had warned me not to make any important life decisions for several days after the operation. But I needed a new car, and it wouldn’t hurt to look in the show room for a new Chevy. Well, before the day was gone, I had signed for a new, year-old Impala, which I was going to finance through Chase. I got their letter a day late: “We find the price for this car is far beyond its value.”
My wife recalled that the following day I was in the show room, shouting at the administrators. But it was no use, I had signed the day before. The purpose of this composition is to show you how God makes it up to us for our worst mistakes. First of all, I have had no serious accidents with this car. Second, the price included two warranties, which saved me a bundle. And third, it was a fairly big car, so the occupants were relatively safe if we got hit. All of these things are important in life, and I’d probably have missed their value a few weeks later.
All I can say, is “Amazing grace.”
