A not so Wordless Wednesday!!


My daughter's first car accident. This happened Thanksgiving night. She was driving a Jeep Cherokee and it was late, dark and on an unknown road. She wasn't paying attention looked up and had run off the right hand side of the road. Heaven then over corrected and lost control of the vehicle, over corrected a second time picking up speed because she was going down a large hill, she then slid sideways across the intersection of the parkway and blew out the front drivers side tire at which time the jeep went up on two wheels. She screamed her request outloud, "Please do not let us flip in the name of Jesus!" The jeep sat down and slid down an embankment. I do believe she was in shock at this point....Tyler my nephew (it was his mom's jeep) decided he could get them out so not knowing the front tire was out he put the jeep in four wheel drive and tried to get them out. He managed to run the jeep up and down several trees but they were stuck, this is where most of the damage came from. Sigh....I just praise God that He had His hand upon them. That my daughter cried out to Him in her time of need and that He was faithful. :) And I'm thankful my sister in law was such a sport about the whole thing and not upset over her jeep...

Wow---I've been in a similar situation before and walked away with only a bruise from my seat belt. Angels were watching over me!!
