Thank You God

The Hand of God overshadowed my wife and delivered her from a potentially deadly car accident.

As she reached the top of the hill at Five Mile Prairie, an oncoming car hit a patch of ice and smashed into Rhonda's door. A teenage boy was driving the other vehicle. Thankfully, they were both going slow enough to avoid serious damage; no one got hurt.

Despite the positive outcome, we were all shaken by Rhonda's close brush with disaster. Just the other day, Whitney and I witnessed the aftermath of an accident that killed a local woman. The other accident played out in such a similar fashion that it could have easily produced the same deadly result. Any number of factors could have changed our destinies: if either car had driven faster, or hit harder, or slid over the embankment.... so many possibilities could have been more tragic than what actually happened.

Rhonda called me at work, obviously shaken. As all the horrible possibilities crossed my mind, I felt a terrible urge to cry, and then to thank God for preserving Rhonda's life.

Once again, thank you God. Thank you.

THANKS BE TO GREAT SPIRIT!!!! It was not yet Rhonda's time nor the time for the young driver. This does remind me to live each day fully. And to watch out all the time, but on ice things happen so very quickly.

I am sooo glad Rhonda is ok. Cars can be fixed even though it is such a hassle. I hope you both take time this weekend to just be. And I pray there are no sore muscles, etc in the coming days.

Healing vibes & many blessings are coming your way from OK.

Blessed be...
