Thank you, Lord!

After hearing about my nephew's wife's car wreck I cringed when I heard James telling about his evening ride last night. It seems that the man in front of James slammed on his brakes and came to a stop. Our son slammed on his brakes and came to a stop. Whew! The person behind James slammed on his brakes and James wondered if he was going to be able to stop. But, he did, stopping about a foot or so from James' car. It was the man behind THAT man that was the problem. He came barreling along and tried to swerve and miss the man behind James but was unable to do so. This particular man was in a SUV and ended up hitting the car behind James. From what I can understand the SUV swerved and by doing so, the SUV's left front end hit the car. By all intents and purposes it should have caused the car to hit James' car, however, the car was totally pushed out into the other highway lane! It didn't touch James' car at all! Both of the people in the respective cars that were involved were able to get out and walk and didn't appear to be hurt. I imagine there will be some soreness of muscles but I praise the Lord, for it could have been much worse with the high rate of speed the SUV was going.

I'll praise the Lord with you for that! I'm sure we don't realize half of what God protects us from each day. I'm glad your loved ones are okay!

I agree with Sparrow! ((HUG)) Glad that everyone's okay.

I was T-Boned on the passenger side once...my car was totally lifted in the air and spun in the air THREE TIMES until it touched the ground. I and the other driver were in high school. He said he wasn't speeding (yeah, right). PTL, I emerged shaken but unscathed.

I am so glad your son is ok! I have been in situations similar to that in which I should I have been in an accident. The only explanation I can give for coming away unharmed is God!

Sounds similar to my wreck, but I was the SUV that hit the stopped car...

Wow! Praise the Lord for protection!
I know it was a bad experience, but don't you just love it when God shows Himself that way? :) Like "That HAD to be God!" I just love that! :D

Wow,
I had an experience like that one time when I was younger. The car behind me came barelling toward me, swerved, hit the car in *front* of me and knocked him across two lanes. I was completely missed! God is GOOD!
Warmly,
