I had a similar experience just last month. I drove over a huge metal rod that punctured my tire and instantly flattened it. My tire guy fixed it for free!
God is Good!
Thats exactly what I thought. They tell us all the time that angels are all around us and I believe it. We don’t know who they are until they show up! Praise the Lord.
Thanks, Luv. He even stopped and found my hub cap. I suspect he saw it fly off and where it went. It was sorta nerve wrecking though. Maybe things bother me more than they used to! Thank goodness for our phones we carry with us!! With my hip problem, I can’t walk too far.
You had an angel, too! Not everyone is out to rip us off as we sometimes think.
I’m glad he was around and also glad that your family members were close enough to get there quickly. I would have been totally unnerved, too! I can walk ok, but not with my knees shaking like they would have been. :)
I had a CA Highway Patrolman stop for me once. Only time I ever had a flat and thankful for that. He said the same thing to me about 'that's why we're out here'. LEOs get a bad rap but I'm guessing there is a much bigger % who are kind and helpful to those in need than the ones who are power happy!
Thanks teenie. I will have to have the hub and new tire. I’m going to call my insurance man in the morning. That would be called a road hazard and I may have insurance for that but I will surely check. (I’ve been asleep already) so now I’m heading for bed, thank goodness.
See you tomorrow if the creek don’t rise!
(((((Loving Hugs to you, and Thanksgiving to Jesus Christ!)))))
(((((Goodnight, and God Bless)))))
My dear friend Kitty, You truly lift me up with your loving and comforting words. You always know just what to say when any of us are having troubles. I do thank the Lord for saving me from a horrible wreck. When I hit that thing, it sounded horrible and I think thats what scared me so bad. Of course I didn’t want my car damaged but my life was foremost (even I didn’t think so at that moment.)
Thank you for your (always) kind words and for making me feel a little easier. You’re one of a kind, my friend. ((((HUGS)))) May angels always protect you! We all need you in our lives.
We hear so much about bad cops its great to hear that many are good decent men that help out a lady when in trouble...also to follow up with a great letter to his commander is good, it goes into his file and is a good thing to do..GG
Praise God you are safe!
Thanks, GG. I’m like you, the last time I had a flat, it just gently went down overnight. When I had it repaired, it had a big nail in it. Stuff happens. But when you’re driving along about 40 MPH and hit something and feel that shake, after hearing that thud. it is so unnerving!
I’ve always had respect for policemen and firemen as they risk their lives for us in the call of duty. We can’t let a few rotten ones ruin the good names of others. There’s more good than bad ones, thank goodness. See you later!
Absolutely, yorkie. You and I have talked about angels being around us all the time. I've always believed it but now I believe it even stronger. Not to prolong the thing but it sure could have been much worse. After something is over and you go to bed and think about it, it makes you even more nervous. But I just gave thanks to God that he once again pulled me through and prevented a worse situation. Thank you friend, for the lovely graphic and words. It means so much to me having true friends like you. ((((HUGS)))))
Driving a huge truck over the icy roads of northern Alaska would seem to be a task that requires a sense of humor. But when one driver heard another driver named Alex laugh often and rather loudly over the truck-to-truck communication system, he grew irritated. So he made some disparaging remarks about Alex and his good-natured guffaws.
Not long after that, the critical driver lost control of his big rig and ended up in a ditchup to his axles in snow. And guess who came along the isolated road and saw his predicament? Thats right. Alex.
So, what would you do? Keep on trucking right past with a hearty laugh at the other guys trouble? Thats not what Alex did. He stopped and spent several hours helping dig his critic out. When he was done, he simply said, Any opportunity I can have to make amends, Im happy to do it. And then, of course, he laughed.
What a lesson for all of us. Isnt that what Christ commanded us to do in Luke 6to help out even those who seem to be our enemies? The next time someone says something about you that you dont like, think of Alexand dont just laugh it off. Do something positive for that person, and in so doing, you may make a friend.
Read: Luke 6:27-36
What a GREAT story you’ve told, jaycee. Blessings showered down on you in so many ways.
Three years ago Lin and I were leaving Spokane to head back home to California. I began to feel a pull to the right and I was losing power.
I pulled over to the side of the freeway and our right front tire was flat. I had to move suitcases and boxes to access the jack and spare tire.
I was about half done with the project when a Washington State Dept of Transportation truck pulled in behind us. The guy finished the job for us plus he checked the tire pressure on the spare and added some air. I couldn’t thank him enough for what he had done.
Five hours later we purchased and new tire and had it mounted. The doughnut spare was re-mounted underneath and we were on our way home - again.
I never knew DOT provided that service on the freeways.
This sounds as if it might be an Irish blessing.
A very nice blessing!
