There are times like that for a lot of people. I know people that had something unusual happen that saved them from death, and I have had the same.
I was driving on the interstate with my oldest, who was about 7-8 at the time. Completely out of character for her, she suddenly said, "Mom, get off
the interstate!" I was planning to drive further on it, but something told me to listen, so I took the exit that we were approaching. From the road
the exit led to, you could see the interstate for a good half block or so, and we witnessed a very bad accident, that involved the cars that had been
in front of us, and the one that had moved into our spot in traffic when we exited, and some behind them, and an 18-wheeler. I have no doubt we would
have died had we stayed on the interstate, and we were both sure God had sent a warning.
Another time, driving home,I was approaching an 3-way intersection, with no traffic anywhere, and had to slow because a possum ran across the road,
far earlier in the day than you would ever expect to see one out and about. That slowing down avoided another accident, as a car came speeding
through from the street to the right, without stopping for the sign, and sped through the intersection when I would have been there, had I not slowed
to avoid the possum.
Yet another day, when crossing a very busy intersection, I spotted a car that wasn't slowing for the street light, and could see that this car would
be in the middle of the intersection at the same time I was. I braced for impact, fully expecting to be smashed into. Then, I was somehow through
the intersection, as was the other car, and I have NO memory of crossing the intersection, or seeing the other car cross. it was like space folded or
something, and we passed unharmed.
All I can think is that I have been protected for some reason. We might not ever understand why in this life, but I appreciate it, nonetheless!
