A deer hit us yesterday afternoon, just after we had spent six hundred dollars having major maintainance done on our Honda Odyssey. Only 2 hours before, we drove away assuming the van was good to go for another 100,000 miles. Then, as we neared Chipley, Florida a deer literally jumped onto the hood of our van. Honestly, the deer flew over the car we were meeting head on and landed on our van. It was surreal!
Thankfully, we were safe. Our sweet children said, "Mommy, we are going to praise God in all circumstances." "Yes we are," I replied. And we did! Friends rescued us and a tow truck came for the van. We ended up having dinner with our rescuers, Connie and Frankie Pittman, along with their children. It was a good night full of laughter. We chose to praise God in our circumstances. After all, everything we have is His.
Yes, Lord! It is all Yours.
