have you ever heard the phrase ‘an angel was looking out for me’? or maybe heard @amygrantofficial ‘s song ‘Angels Watching Over Me’? well... i’ve got angels. and tonight, they were watchin’. .
as Mom and i pulled out of the church parking lot after Bible study, the traffic light was red. We stopped behind the crosswalk - and the light immediately turned green. As cross traffic stopped, Mom was about to step on the gas - and she hesitated. At that second, a car ran the red light and sped through the intersection at 55 mph - not a foot in front of us. .
If Mom had accelerated, her drivers’ side door would have been directly in the path of that idiot speeding driver. he would not only have hit our car, he would have had the speed, momentum, and weight to have plowed completely THROUGH our car. I shudder to think about the horrific scene it would have been had she not hesitated when she did.
As that car screamed passed in front of us, gaining speed as he revved his engine to run the red light, i shouted (a word i probably shouldn’t have, especially right after Bible study, while still in front of our church) and Mom said ‘Something told me to wait..... wow.’ wow, indeed. feeling very protected right now... thank you, angels. thank you, Lord. that was a very, very close call....
