This time of year is such a glorious time and something happened recently that made me appreciate it all so much more.
Last Saturday night my daughter and I were in the car going to have a special mom and daughter night out for dinner. We found ourselves talking about how many times God has intervened in our lives and how grateful we are. These are not typical conversations with my 14 year old so this was one of those really special moments. Then all sudden pieces of glass flew across the road all over my car from the oncoming traffic lane. I could not comprehend where all this glass was coming from and then time literally stood still.
A deer landed right in front of my car! You could see her head and her beautiful brown eyes. I will never forget it; she was on her back right in front of my car. I locked eyes with this deer and said ‘God please help us'! Before my car could hit her and in less than a nanosecond, she flipped over and disappeared! We assume she ran into the woods but we were going so fast we never saw her do that. It was like time stood still. I was going 50 miles an hour and it was pitch black out on a busy country road with no streetlights. I never braked and no one ever stopped. It was like an amazing ballet, but I know it was a miracle! Miracles are happening to us all the time. Later we drove past the scene again. Glass all over the road and no deer any where.
I am grateful for Life and to do the work I am blessed to do. I am grateful for YOU!
Please go tell everyone that you love how grateful you are for them. Take this time to say a prayer with me for all those that seem to be in pain of any kind; mentally, emotionally, physically, or spiritually.
See solutions happening for everyone, everywhere.
Two weeks earlier my daughter's friend was killed in a car just 2 miles from the road we were on. She was 17 years old, captain of the cheerleading team and a special mentor to my daughter. Alex encouraged her to try out and even though Alex was a senior, she stopped and gave encouragement to a budding 7th grader she cared for. She took the time to offer kind words. She was and now truly is an angel.
We pray for Alex and all who loved her and we pray for you and give thanks for your light on this Earth.
Life is so precious and last weekend we were touched by an angel and given another chance to experience the JOY of living.
