She was able to get pulled out of the ditch, and limped on to her work and worked the rest of the afternoon. She was amazingly calm about it all, and said that she felt the Lord's presence with her, even in the scary moments. My husband and I drove over to her job to switch out vehicles, and again, we were blessed in that a friend at her job took the tire that was blown, and the donut tire into town for us, and had them checked out. They decided that the tire was destroyed, and aired up the donut tire for her. By the time we got there, they had the donut tire on the car for us. We thanked him very much for his time and efforts. As we drove her car home we just continued to thank the Lord that the car was drivable, and that our daughter was okay!
You just never know when trouble can hit at a moment's notice. It can just be with a simple phone call. Even in the first moments of receiving the phone call, there is always fear in your heart, but then the peace of the Lord comes in and refreshes your heart, and makes you so very thankful for His protection in the midst of all situations we face.
So our family is starting off the New Year with very grateful hearts, and peace too, because we know that God is so very faithful to take care of us each and every moment!
