We witnessed a miracle that took place right in front of our eyes yesterday.
Ray, my husband, was driving to work and I was going with him so I could have the car.
We were stopped at a red light when we saw a young woman running across three lanes of traffic, directly in front of us.
She had two children with her. She had one by the hand and the other one was following behind her.
The one following her was a girl about 6 years of age, I'm guessing.
The woman could see that two lanes were stopped for the light, but what she could not see was that a van was racing down the outer lane.
But my husband could see it in his rear-view mirrors!
Ray shouted and honked for her to stop but she continued and just as I saw what he was shouting about I screamed at the top of my lungs "JESUS HELP THEM!"
The mom and first child got across with no problem, which is a miracle in itself, but the little girl was directly in the path of the van.
I remember seeing her fall to her knees and her little knees were about to be crushed by the wheel of the van...
but suddenly she bounced backwards and then she jumped up quickly.
By then Ray was out of the car and had her in his arms and gingerly carried her across to the sidewalk.
I did not see the angel, but I have NO doubt that there was an angel there that protected them, because the name of JESUS had been called on.
The paramedics arrived and soon after it, the ambulance, but she walked to the ambulance and she was taken to hospital.
I continue to pray for them, only God knows the rest of the story.
I don't usually talk about my faith on my blog, but, my friends, I felt like I needed to tell this story.
The word of God is clear about the power that is in the name of Jesus.
And it's also clear about the use of that name and who has the privilege of using it.
Not everyone does.
I'm so very grateful to the Lord for His protective hand that day.
All I could think and say afterward was "Thank you, thank you, thank you, Jesus".
I'm sure some of you have witnessed miracles such as this.
It's terrifying, but oh so wonderful to know the power that is in the name of JESUS!
It pays to read the word of God and stay on speaking terms with our sweet Lord, doesn't it.
Have a wonderful weekend and I pray that all of you know Jesus as the lover of your soul.
All of the above photos were taken down by the Red River that runs not far from our house.
The first one was taken at 3:30 in the afternoon yesterday.
I could not resist documenting, in photos, the setting of the sun a few days ago.
Unfortunately, they are not in correct sequence.
