“Where God guides, He provides.” Isaiah 58:11
Amen to that! The news is out and official. We are expanding our business to Tawas, and we’re so excited about it! We’ve known this day was coming, but now that it’s going to be official it seems so surreal. Jeff’s Uncle Tim has owned and ran this shop for over 30 years, and it’s such a blessing to be keeping it in the family. I know if Jeff’s dad was still with us, he would be so proud of him too. But we know he is shining down from heaven with a smile on his face, and a cold one in his hand I’m sure!
When Jeff worked there back in high school while we were dating, I’d bring him lunch, or I would just show up to say hi. It seems like ages ago now! There was also a small period where I was too shy before we started dating, and I would drive by just to see if he was working LOL. Oh young love! What’s crazy is that I still have messages from back in 2013, our last year in college, talking about our future, football, what’s to come, etc. And Jeff made a comment like well, if anything I could go back to work at Timmy Tire, and who knows maybe even own it one day… And tomorrow we’ll officially own it. It truly is amazing how things come full circle and I am just so proud of Jeff and all of his hard work to accomplish this for our family.
Our faith in God has brought us where we are today, and we are more than ready for it. When Jeff was released from the Browns back in 2018, there was such an unknown period. We prayed that God would continue to guide us and our family. I remember seeing a quote “Until God opens the next door, praise him in the hallway.” That’s exactly what we did. And actually in the meantime he worked at the Oscoda shop which became ours in April 2019. I can already see Carter working there one day just like Jeff did growing up, and who knows maybe Payton too haha! I’m excited to watch our family continue to grow in the small town that we grew up in too.
So onto our next adventure! We’re so thankful for all of the wonderful support during this special time for our family. We cannot wait to see what’s to come!
Lots of love & God Bless,
