God Was With Us...

This morning, my husband and I drove out to the parking lot where I worked to fix a flat tire on my car (I left it there overnight) and while my husband was underneath the back end of the car trying to knock the flat tire loose, the car jack gave way and my heavy 2 ton car came crashing down on top of my husband. those 5 seconds he layed there motionless, was an eternity, I thought he was gone...My soul seemed to fall right out of me, and then I heard him gasp for air, and he strained to tell me to jack the car back up, but I knew there was no time, I went to the right side of the car and proceeded to lift up that side of the car the very best I could...evidently, my super adrenaline charged strength lifted the side of my jeep grand cherokee and my husband wriggled loose... (it raised maybe less than one inch, but just enough for him to slide out). After he got out I dropped the car and collapsed from exhaustion. My husband crawled to me and we were sitting on the pavement propped up against my crippled car and we held each other for maybe 10 minutes straight. I believe God gave me that extra amount of strength to help my husband. Thank you God for watching out of my husband, I have only been married for 6 months, and I wasn't ready to let him go just yet...I thank God for second chances.

Oh my gosh Lauren.. you are both so lucky. God was definitely watching out for the two of you. And for those of us who have grown to love you through your words and photographs.

I forgot to tell you in our conversation this afternoon that this morning around 11:00 I suddenly had the urge to pray. I didn't know why...I just knew I should pray. Is that when this happened? God has always been there for you honey, and J. and always is. Thanks be to Him! Love, Mom
