"The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them" Psalm 34:7
Yesterday while I was at a junction, a SUV whizzed past me at a neck-breaking speed only to have the driver slamming on his brakes really hard a short distance later at the traffic light. Thankfully no accident happened.
Often times, scenes like this reminds me of how thankful I am to be alive today. Some time back while I was driving on a dark night in the pouring rain, I almost didn't make it home. I remembered waiting at a traffic light at a t-junction with the rain hitting so hard that I could barely see through the windscreen.
I usually drive off a few seconds after the light turned green. But not at that time. Somehow my foot didn't budge at all in that few seconds. Just then as I was about to drive across, a car sped past from my right. The car skidded and crashed into a divider. It could have been me instead of the divider. Thankfully the driver escaped unhurt although his car was badly damaged. Thankfully an angel was there that night. I was and still am thankful for that split second. I am thankful for God's protection and His angels.
Yesterday, the same SUV driver had a dog hanging half out of the passenger window. You could tell how fast the driver was going from the way the shih tzu's hair was whipped back in one direction. Thankfully he was hanging on by his straining leash. Thankfully LS managed to stop next to him at the traffic light and told the driver that it was dangerous to have his dog half hanging out of his car (no matter how cool it looked, I would've added). Thankfully the driver accepted it graciously. Otherwise it would have been a different post today heh...just kidding!
I am thankful to have a carrier to travel in
What are you thankful for? Hope everyone is having a thankful time.
