Default Mission from God

4-13-15

Dear Bird Friends,

Yeah, appears the good Lord’s got me movin’ on, so now am in kind of a big hurry to straighten out my final affairs which includes selling my 1958 Tbird Hardtop and my 1948 Dodge Panel Van. Selling these vehicles now will alleviate my heirs the hassle in being forced to sell them. Last week I was diagnosed at Abbott Northwestern Hospital Cancer Center in Minneapolis with incurable pancreatic cancer. A port was installed in my right shoulder and I will start chemo Tuesday 4-14-15. My life expectancy has suddenly been drastically shortened. No telling how long I’ll be. Could be 6 months, could be 4-10 more years. I am now on a mission from God. Only He knows for sure. ‘How precious did that Grace appear the hour I first believed?’

So now that spring may finally be here, I will get the bird started and pull it out of it storage garage so that I can clean and detail it, change fluids, check brakes and putz with a bunch of other stuff in order to prepare it for sale. My cousin Sue runs the Route 65 Classics in Blaine, MN http://route65classics.com . We’ll trailer the bird to her showroom and she’ll sell if for me. I’ll ask her for an exclusive for any Squarebirds.org buyers. Later this summer I’ll get the 48 Dodge panel van up to her also. Please contact me directly at either 612-708-2144 or askhow@aol.com

‘We’ve no less days to sing God’s praise than when we’d first begun.’ I am at peace with this whole new turn in my life, yet it is beyond understanding. But I know it’s God’s will and His peace.

Jed,

Wish I could find the words to express how I feel. Guess I can only say that if I'm ever faced with the same situation - I'll handle it half as well as you have explained.

I'm sure all will go fine with the cars.

Jed, words cannot express well enough how I felt when I read your post... I will echo Eric's words and hope that I also can face what is in store for me down the road with as much grace as you have. Good luck with moving the cars and I hope they find themselves in a good home, where someone will give them the love and care you have...

Eric and all, thank you for the blessing and thanks to all for your thoughts and prayers. I'll need all I can get. Clothe me in the armor of the Lord with your prayers.

On the lighter side, I wish I could request the same of the IRS. Tomorrow's tax day and I am sending them a check.

Again, thank you all!
