God intervened and spared mine and my daughter's lives this morning. Katie and I were on our way to school and work this morning. I needed to pass the two cars in front of me, because they were driving at the average speed of 45 miles and hour...on a 65 mph highway...and we were running late. I started to pass and while I was directly in line with the car that was right in front of me, she decided to pass too. She didn't see that I was RIGHT BESIDE HER! At first I thought she was just drifting to the center of the highway, and I pulled over a little, then I realized that she was actually trying to pass...I honked my horn, but I don't think she heard...I ended up completely on the shoulder and almost into the grass before she saw me and pulled back in behind the car in front of us. It scared me to death...I'm still shook up about it. If she would have hit us, it would have been on Katie's side, and I just cannot even bear to think about that. Even now, my heart feels like it could jump out of my chest. God had his hand in this...and I think it might have been right there in between our two cars. You just never know the accidents and circumstances that God saves us from.
