"For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways."
Often when I'm preparing a post for Prayer Meetin' God will throw a curve ball - or even a brick - right at my head. You know, just to shake me up, get my attention, and remind me that I promised to make Wednesday's posts all about Him. I really should change the title from Prayer Meetin' to " It's Raining Bricks Again."
I had written a lovely post for today...complete with photos from our trip and lots of rambling on about the beauty of His creation, blah, blah, blah. However, The Oldest's very BEST friend on the face of this earth was in an accident last night, and it sort of puts things in a different perspective. As Fluffy* (not my choice of nickname, he earned it himself) was driving home from the Fire Department after their weekly meeting last night, he approached a major intersection and his light turned green. A woman ran the red light and he t-boned her right in the passenger side. The force sent him spinning around several times until his truck ended up facing back in the direction he'd been coming from. Had their timing been off by just seconds, she would have hit him right in the driver's side and probably killed them both. As it is, he has a bad sprain, some sore muscles and a totalled truck.
Thankfully, God's timing is never off, not even by seconds. His angels were keeping Fluffy safe just as they had been commanded. Thank God for His promises today. Thank Him for watching over you and your family. And let me know how YOU need prayer!
Photos tomorrow, I promise!
*Fluffy is the nickname bestowed upon Oldest's best bud when he was working his very first house fire and the chief couldn't remember his name. Well, he has a head full of shaggy hair!
