This morning I went out to my car to go to work and I found my glove box open. All the Cd's which I had in there were gone. I estimate about 15 or so and of course it was my favorite ones. Most of the Cd's I own are christian. Some of them I have put onto my ipod, others I have not gotten around to yet. I was very upset because I felt like all my personal things had been invaded. I was thankful that the air compressor sitting in the backseat in plain sight was untouched. The air compressor has come in very handy for filling up my tires and it works better than any I have ever used.

I never lock my car doors at home because I feel safe at my house. I don't keep anything of real value in my car. I don't believe that Cd's hold much resale value, but they were valuable to me. I love my music, it has helped me get through some tough times. I have been listening to Jami Smith, the song that was on when I started the car was Salt & Light. This song talks about being salt and light in this world and letting God shine through us. That hit me this morning as I pulled out of my driveway. I quickly got over my anger and prayed asking God to use the music on the Cd's for his glory. I will miss the music that I had and I hope that they will hate it and bring it back to me, but more importantly I hope God will use the music to work through this persons life.

I know exactly how you feel! Your upset as you feel like your personal space has been violated and worst of all - by a stranger. My home was broken into and they took many things that I held very dear. I prayed real hard to have the strenghth to forgive and I have forgiven them as they are material things that can and have been replaced. I was thankful that no one was home when they broke in and no one was hurt.

I love checking out all the blogs giving frugal ideas - check out mine - we are doing a tightwad giveaway as well. Thanks and wait and see - you get the music back!
