The good Lord and his angels were watching
over me yesterday. My middle son sells specialty cheese
at a farmer's market and I needed to use my
husband's big pickup yesterday so my son
could go to the warehouse and load it up with
all his coolers full of cheese and tables, etc. to
set up at the market.
After I dropped him off at the market and was going
through town to head back home, all of a sudden
I heard a really loud sound and I thought my tire
had popped, but the next second, the truck tilted really strange.
A split second later, as I was trying to steer the truck off
the road, out of the corner of my eye I see my entire
wheel flying across the road.
I had one eyeball on the tire and the other eyeball
on where I was trying to steer the truck.
I held my breath, watching the tire go flying.
It was heading directly for a small bank with
all glass windows in front, but suddenly it
sharply turned toward a tall concrete retaining wall.
That tire was rolling so fast, when it hit the wall,
it didn't stop or bounce off, it JUMPED the wall!
On top of that wall is a row of duplex homes,
so then I wondered if it would destroy something
on one of them, but it hit a lamp post.
I felt certain it would fly off that lamp post,
and head back down the hill toward the road,
but it started spinning and eventually fell over.
I'm still amazed that the tire crossed the street
when there was no oncoming traffic, and it
didn't hit the glass windows on the bank and
it didn't damage any property at the duplexes AND
it didn't come flying back down onto the road and
start the whole process over again!
You want to hear the really amazing part?
While waiting for my husband to come help me,
I walked up and down the road and was
able to locate all 6 lug nuts so my husband was
able to put the wheel back on again!
GOD IS GOOD!
I was scarce in blogland last week because I worked
at day camp all week at our church.
It goes from 9-4 every day and I decided to be
smart and not try to blog and teach at the same time.
I hope to be back to some regular blogging this week!
So...what does this photo have to do with this post?
Absolutely nothing...I just don't like having a post without a photo!
I sold this window last week and it was so pretty!
Hope you have a blessed Sonday!
