Today was just one more evidence that the Lord's hand is protecting and providing for me! After church this morning, I went to pick up my sister, Melinda, to get lunch. As I was just about to cross through an intersection, a Mountaineer made a left hand turn right in front of me. My brakes were unable to stop us in time and we crashed headlong into the right rear panel of the vehicle. Melinda and I watched as the hood of my car crumpled up in front of us, but even though we were badly shaken we were mostly unharmed. There were so many wonderful people surrounding us and helping the whole time! The Lord placed just the right people around us (including an off duty EMT) to help us physically and emotionally. Melinda did have some neck pain and tingling in her arms and legs, so after filling out all the paperwork, I went with her in the ambulance to the hospital just to make sure she was ok. She was kept for observation for a short while, but was released within the hour with just a prescription for pain medication. I'm sure both of us will be incredibly sore tomorrow and through the following week, but we're both so thankful to be alright!
I would ask for your prayers for limited whiplash and quick healing for both of us.
It appears that my car is totaled, but we'll decide for sure what to do in the coming week. Please also pray especially for wisdom, strength, and patience as we work out details with the insurance company (praise God the other driver was insured!!)
My God has never failed to provide for me and protect me, and now I have one more story as proof!
