So.... onto the near death experience that inspired me to share again.
We traveled from Georgia to Alabama for the Thanksgiving holiday on a very cold wet day, The six of us went in two vehicles because I had to return home earlier than everyone else. Sparta
Allison and Ben had life flash experiences, Allison told me she thought about jumping out of the car because she KNEW we were going to die if we went over the edge. Ben was pretty much speechless and I was laughing hysterically. For me it's either laugh or fall apart and I choose to laugh, no doubt if I should run across a dead body someday I'll be suspect for my inappropriate response.
Do I really believe Jesus took control of my car? Well, prior to road trips we typically have a prayer in the car, for this particular trip I prayed specifically for a double hedge of protection as we traveled since there were going to be two automobiles on the road and I have to tell you I don't think one hedge could have kept us from continuing to slide right through that red mud and rolling right on down to the bottom of the hill. I am pretty sure taking one's hands off the steering wheel is not the recommended way to respond either. So, yes, yes I do believe that a higher power was in control.
Where was the second car in all this you might be asking? I did too. They didn't have a clue what had happened, About five miles down the road, my hubby called to say he'd lost us. He had no idea how very close to actually being lost we were.
