So since then I have been dealing with insurance, adjusters, and getting an estimate all while hoping we will have everything repaired before we leave for the wedding and our anniversary trip next week. I am not mad about the car. I have no anger, everyone makes mistakes. A car is just a car, the kids and their Mom, and Gracey are what I care about and what I did care about immediately after it happened. I am just sad that people have to be so mean to each other. If she was mean right away because of being scared and shocked that is one thing, but she decided to put on a show for the police officer who arrived 30 minutes after it happened. I can honestly say I am asking God to give her peace and that we can consider ourselves blessed and look at all our blessings more closely because life can change in a matter of seconds.

I realized in a new way how amazing 5 seconds could be when I was in a car accident yesterday morning. 5 seconds earlier or later I am sure Gracey and I would have died or the other persons precious children would have been very badly wounded. The odd thing about it was that I really never felt scared or shaky even after it happened. Sadly however the other lady was very upset and irrational. The officer had to step in between her so she couldn't talk to me. Of course you replay things like this in your head over and over again when it happens even though I KNOW my light was green. I had never been in a collision before so I was just trying to deal with all the "what if's" and making myself turn it over to the Lord as much as I could all last night. The damage was SO minor to her car because she was speeding, Stormy (our Faithful transportation station) suffered the brunt of it since I was going so slow. I believe it was a Miracle of the Lord that the airbags didn't go off. Gracey and I were on our way for a walk and then to PETS and she was in my lap. Bryan said she wouldn't have lived through an impact of an airbag, he said I would have been very badly hurt if that happened. Just the night before I couldn't sleep so I was praying and anointing my home and, get this, even Gracey with oil asking God for blessings and protection.
