After entering the free-way to make it to the other side of town faster-a blinding snow storm hit our area. I slowed way down to get off the exit and could barely see the signs. I made it to the neighborhood he was in, and called him on my cell-phone to get directions. When I told him I could not see the street signs-he came down the road to find me and I followed him back to the house he was working on. A quick hug, kiss and a bucket of tools out the door...and I was faced with the task of making it home without sliding off the road!
I did great all the way across town and then I was faced with the problem of how to make it back up to the hill that I live on...which way would be safer to take? Well, the city has put a new speed bump/water run-off at the bottom of one side of our hill. All my neighbors have said that this is sure to create a nasty pile-up during the bad weather. So, I drove past that road up the hill. I chose the road with the S-curve. I know, your wondering how much safer could that be?! Crazy choice-but the only other option would be to go clear around the mountain and go up Walmart hill (Also very steep!). I just wanted to get home to my kids and put my car safe back into the driveway. So, as I was driving with both hands on the wheel- I said a serious prayer in my heart-and stubbornly took the S-curve. I was giving myself a pep-talk and asking Heavenly Father to guide me all the way up. My kids were calling on my cell-phone-but there was no way I was taking my hands off the wheel! It was a total miracle to not slide off the road-I only had one scary moment of my car swerving. I didn't hit the brakes, just kept on steering the van in the dark snow-storm, till I saw my driveway and pulled up to the house.
Before going in, I once again spoke out-loud to thank the Heavens Above for truly guiding me and keeping my car safe. Every step of my life, has had miracles-even through darkness and uncertain moments. I may not follow the path that the world takes, but I am all the better for it. I know that we have challenges ahead of us all-but we can stay strong and ask for help from our Heavenly Father. He's always listening!
