What A Week

Feb 12, 2014
Hey everyone! I promise I didn't fall off the face of the earth.

I was sick with a cold all weekend and then on my way to work on Monday I got into a car accident!

It's been a really terrible winter in Michigan and on my way to work on Monday I hit some ice. My car became out of control I ended up in the opposite lane facing the opposite direction, hit a snow bank, and flipped the car onto the passengers side. I was dangling in my seatbelt for a bit, but was able to get my window down, unhook my seat belt, and climb out. Praise God for the calmness that came over me immediately after it happened. I was able to stay calm in order to reach for my phone, call 911, and then climb out of my car. The waterworks started as soon as I got out of the car. I am so thankful for the two people who stopped to help, especially a man named Rick, who tried to calm me down and keep me focused by asking me questions about my life. The fire department, police, and ambulance showed up and I had to talk to each of them. I talked to a fireman first and he was the nicest! Everyone was so nice to me. I was bawling and trying to tell everyone that physically I was fine. I walked away from that accident without any soreness, bruises, or scratches.

I feel blessed abundantly. Many reading this may not understand what I mean by that. How can I be blessed when I got in this horrible accident and wrecked my car? Well, first of all - God isn't God just to fix my problems. Life is still life and bad things are still going to happen. However, what we learn in the book of Job is that God isn't going to give us more than we can handle. I am thankful to God that I was not injured and that I didn't hurt anyone else. I am thankful that even though I did $3000 worth a damage, my car is fixable and I don't have to go into debt to get a new one. I am so lucky that I hit a snow bank and not the trees I thought I was going to. I'm fortunate that I hit on the passengers and not the driver's side and had no one else riding with me. Blessings, blessings, blessings.

Being faithful to and obeying God is not the easiest choice, but it is ALWAYS the right one.

Thanks for reading guys.

On a more fun note - tomorrow is Galentine's Day and Friday is Valentine's Day!
Is you had a choose a TV or movie character to be your Valentine who would you pick?
I'd pick...
Tom Branson, Downton Abbey
Who would you pick? Remember, it has the be the character, not the actor.

  1. I cannot think of a Valentine that I would want. But if I could choose someone to have a Galentine's brunch with, it would be Rhe Drummond (The Pioneer Woman).

  3. OMG OMG OMG!!! You flipped your car??? I'm SO VERY glad that you are okay! Geez woman! I flipped my car six times and was ejected over 50 ft into a tree so I know that it's a lot of damned trauma! You take care of yourself and I'm praying/thinking about you!
