Part of the reason I am thankful for this today is because of the scary dream I had last night. I won't go into detail other than to tell you that it spooked me enough to remind my husband - twice - to lock the door on his way out to work. Yeah, it was that bad. Blech...
The other reason is because I just experienced this protection the other day. I was pulling out into traffic from a parking lot. Just as I pulled in to an empty lane, a very, very large pickup decided he was going to switch lanes and he wanted my spot. I sped up as fast as I could in my little soccer mom van but the faster I went, the faster he accelerated. I know this may sound paranoid but, to be honest, I think the gentleman was trying to cause an accident. Just as all I could see in the rear view mirror was chrome steel bumper, the truck came to almost a complete stop like he'd run out of gas. The whole incident probably only lasted 15 seconds but it took my breath away and I was thanking God for his protection all the way home.
Whew! There is a reason I don't drive in the cities - I can barely handle the dangers and perils of small town America.
When in your life have you felt 'protected'?
