God was watching out for us!

Posted in The musings of Erin at 11:18 am by Erin

Pardon me while I delve into religion for a minute.  Clearly, God is watching out for us.  He may not have blessed us with another child yet, but He knows that we’re here.  Last night, it was extremely windy and rainy and cold.  I had choir rehearsal, and normally in that kind of weather, I’d drive our SUV…it’s heavier and less likely to blow around the road.  But for some reason, I decided instead to take the Saturn.

I got home at about 10 and went to park the car in its normal place along the curb, and almost crashed into the enormous branch that came down from our Bradford pear tree!  It was huge–Jason and I working together couldn’t budge it.  Had the Saturn been there, it would have been seriously damaged, if not totalled.  But instead, it’s fine.  Because I took it on a night when there was no logical reason that I would take it.

And this morning, as we went out there with our little saw and clippers, trying to do what we could to get as much out of the road as possible (fortunately, it wasn’t blocking the road completely), our neighbor came over with his chainsaw and made a 3 hour project into a 20-minute one.  We’ve been blessed in so many ways evident in just the last 24 hours–the car is OK, no one was hurt, the branch also missed the 3 wires that are right next to the tree, and we have great neighbors.

I have a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!
