The power of prayer

Early Wednesday morning at 5:00 am I was awaken suddenly with an intense "feeling" that I needed to pray that Lou would have a safe drive to Akron in the morning. I did so and fell back asleep. There had been a light dusting of snow overnight but I hadn't seen it. I woke up before Lou left that morning and made sure that I told him to be extra careful driving. An hour later, he called me and told me that he had been in an accident. He hydroplaned going 60 miles per hour on the Ohio Turnpike and hit the median on all 4 sides of the car. Windows shattered, bumpers flew but Lou walked away completely fine. Needless to say it was scary, but I am sure glad that we had God watching over us. Lou was a bit sore yesterday from the impact but other than that all the damage was done to the car. We are waiting to hear back from the repair shop if the car is totalled. This car is almost paid off so we are hoping that it can be repaired!!! The most important thing is that everyone is okay! And to all of you....be careful during these winter months!! :)

I live right outside of Akron (norton) and it was a mess yesterday! Not really snow just a slight dusting but lots of black ice they kept saying -- accidents all over. Glad he is okay.
