Ran out today to take my son to look for a sale item and to pick up a couple things we needed. Already had about 3-4 inches of snow on the ground when we left and the snow just keeps coming.
We slid while trying to navigate a turn and slid right up on a turn median! Here is where God shows up to bless us and show he is still in the business of working miracles!
I KNEW that I was not going to be able to make the turn and saw that I was going to hit the median so I tried to hit it straight on. We slid up over the curb and had a jarring thump as we got good and properly STUCK! Almost as soon as I stepped out of the car to asses the situation, two young men in a Jeep waved at me and started trying to get turned around to help. Then a young couple with child in tow stopped and the man got out and asked if he could help. He had tow straps and helped us get off the median.
Once off the median it seemed that we had been very “lucky” and no mechanical damage had been done. I thanked “Joe” the man who stopped to help us and then my son and I talked about how many things could have been different. If one of the tires had hit the curb we would most likely and at the very least have been stuck with a flat tire but possibly a cracked or warped axle. We were okay, we didn’t hit anyone else, and the car was still functional….
Many people might think that ALL these things are just coincidental but I give Jesus the praise for keeping his hand upon us and our vehicle.
Be careful out there and God bless!
