gail Posted June 7, 2003 Share Posted June 7, 2003 Trying to figure out what God was telling me yesterday . . I have always said, through my cancers, that my life could end instantly in a car wreck going to buy milk. Yesterday, I was on my way to school, and my very best friend was right behind me. She is the one I tell my deepest, darkest secrets to. The light turned to a green arrow for me, and I proceeded into the intersection. Out of the corner of my eye, a pickup truck was entering the intersection from my left. I knew if I got hit, it would be very bad, even fatal. I slammed on the brakes, as did the truck. All I was thinking was I can't get in a wreck with Suzanne right behind me. We stopped about 6 feet from each other. I checked the light again, to make sure I hadn't made a mistake, a prodeeded on to school. When I saw my girlfriend at school, she said she had her hand on the phone to call 911. And she thought how I had always said I could be killed in a car wreck, and here it was. Yesterday was Field Day, always a trying time for teachers. (Surprised?) I took it all in stride, because I was not dead. Meanwhile, I was questioning why I had stopped the car, and not rushed through the intersection. She called me later that night to tell me how she couldn't stop thinking about it. I asked her about the stopping, and she said if I hadn't, I would have been T boned for sure. This follows an event from the day before. I heard the interview on Good Morning America with the hiker who had cut off his hand to save himself. When commenting on the risks he took hiking alone, he said exactly the same thing I've been saying for years..."I could be killed going to the grocery store for milk." Too weird for me. A neighbor up the street died this week, and the funeral was today. The entire funeral procession drove past her house on the way to the cemetery. I think God wants me to get up and get moving, rain and all. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
