Saved by inches

  • Print

Every once in a while, you hear about God’s angels here on Earth. To actually experience their grace is truly a miracle.

I lost control of my car on the icy road, on Highway 59, just north of South Beach Casino while on my home from Pine Falls. I was not driving fast, but the car spun around, flew into the ditch and landed upside down.

I know my car was filled with God’s heavenly angels as I was not hurt and very calm — and also because my car came to a stop only inches from iced-over water that would have been over my head.

The man who towed my car, Terry from Selkirk, informed me that when he went in front of my car to hook it up, he broke through the ice and couldn’t touch bottom.

I also know that I was surrounded by earthly angels as they came to my aid in the ditch. They called to me to let me know they were there, opened the door and got me out to safety.

They offered me the warmth of their hearts as well as the warmth of their car.

Once we realized that I was indeed OK, another angel drove me all the way to my home in Selkirk.

I did ask their names, but in my time of shock, sadly, I forgot them except for Lauren who drove me home.

I told them to read the Random Acts of Kindness column in the paper as I would be telling my story.

My family and I want to send the most sincere thank you to you all.

I pray that you all had a safe trip home that night. Thank you again, from my heart.
