A 4th of July Miracle

Today I am thankful.
I am thankful to live in a country that is free.

And I am thankful to be alive.

Yesterday I was driving between Javier's house and the fireworks stand I'd been running to raise money for the teens at our church. I had an unfortunate accident and I am so thankful to be alive and well. Sort of well.

I don't remember a lot of the accident. Someone was coming over into my lane, and then I spun across 4 lanes of traffic and smacked into cement median. The airbag deployed... I couldn't hear anything for a few minutes and I was terrified. But I was alive. And nothing was bleeding or broken.

I am so thankful for the angels I know God had protecting me. Because there is no way I should be even close to okay. There is no way the car should not have been completely smashed in. But I am. And it isn't.

I am really sore but thankful.

I am also thankful to Javier. Because he let me borrow his car that day. And that may have saved my life. My jeep could have rolled, or flipped. I am thankful that even though he is sad for his car, he is thankful I'm okay. And not mad at me.

I am thankful today for another day of life.
I am thankful today that I can hug the people I love.
I am thankful today for the life and the freedom that I have.

Here is my reminder to love big everyday.

yes, considering what it went through, that car should be a mangled mess. but considering that you can now only drive it in circles . . . i'm just glad you are ok--the car will get fixed, but you would be much harder to replace :)

Praise the Lord your ok. It was just a simply reminder to never forget that he is watching and protecting you.

Whoa! So glad to hear that you are ok considering how bad it could have been. So grateful we have a Father who is in Control! All the best while you recover. Will be praying for you!
