Many years ago, I was sitting at an intersection waiting for the traffic light to turn green. Can one dream while awake? Maybe it was what some refer to as a vision. I don’t know what it was, but I could see in my mind an accident on the street I was preparing to turn on. I didn’t think about it much after that day.
Three days later I was driving down that street. For some reason I looked in the rear-view mirror. I saw a truck coming in the middle of the street from a couple of vehicles behind me.
There was not enough space for that truck to get between my vehicle and the vehicles on the other side of the street. I slowed down and moved over as far as I could. There was a deep ditch on both sides of the street.
The truck driver forced his way down to my vehicle and hit the driver’s side rear of my vehicle. Three of my children were in the back and one baby in the front seat. This was years before seat belts and car seats for children.
The baby was in one of the carry seats that was popular back then. When the truck hit my vehicle, it shook us all. The children in the back were okay. The back of the front seat protected them.
Something I can’t explain happened with the baby. I have always attributed it to an angel. The seat with the baby in it flew straight up off the car seat where she was next to me. It then moved toward the dashboard and in slow motion gently landed on the floor of the car between the seat and the dashboard.
Ever since that day I have had no doubt that angels are watching over us. I have no other way of understanding how that seat came down so slowly, but for an angel carrying it down.
The police came and could see no injuries on any of us. They advised me to take the baby to be checked just in case. I took her to the ER where they declared her healthy and no injuries.
Have you ever had something happen that you can’t explain how it happened?
