Guardian Angels on our Shoulders

I’ve been struggling with finalizing my draft of the next post in the anxiety series and found life throwing us a curve ball again.  My husband’s best friend was in an accident around 1 AM this morning.

To give you an idea of why we are convinced his best friend, who we’ll now refer to as Mr. K, had God watching over him is because of where the accident occurred.

Below is a picture of the Mopac 183 exchange in Austin.  For scale, the light posts are 175 ft tall and the ramp is 100 feet up in the air.

Last night, on an overpass much like this one, just as tall, and just as frightening, Mr. K. lost control of his car and struck the side of the overpass.

These marvels of modern day road construction are built in such a way that if you hit the walls, instead of being launched over the sides, your vehicle will roll over.

With a head wound, broken foot, broken shoulder, ribs and crushed lumbar he managed to climb out of his car as it was catching fire.

One surgery down to pin his foot back together, they’ll be taking him in to put his shoulder back together tomorrow.

During the wee hours this morning, those overpasses did exactly what they were supposed to do.  With a care schedule coming together for his family we’ve already dropped off bread and fruit for tomorrows breakfast and are planning to take dinner and snacks.

I’ve done the ‘live in the hospital’ routine before and know that it’s going to be frustrating and scary for awhile, but we’re thankful to our Heavenly Father for watching over him.

There are miracles, I’ve seen another one.

The Women With Faith Project

Over the past couple months, I’ve been stewing over becoming closer with my Heavenly Father and then I realized that drawing closer still is not 100% about me.  It’s about you as well no matter what denomination you are, what we agree or disagree on, the focus is our Heavenly Father.

Yesterday at about 430 in the morning I woke with the impression that there were a handful of people that I needed to ask if they wanted to be involved with this project.  So, as crazy as it is, since I’m incredibly introverted, I reached out to some of these people to ask them what they thought and if they were interested in coming on board for a huge, but possibly amazing project.

So far, while I think it may end up only being two of us, I am very excited!

In the course of only a few hours, it was decided that following Lent and prayer that we would revisit this thought and see if the impression is still there.  (One of my friends is an amazing Catholic woman of faith)  The more I pray about it, and think about it, the more the answer I am hearing is yes.

I’m very blessed to have such an amazing friend who is even contemplating a journey like that one and who knows what will grow out of it.

That said there are a lot of things in the works, domain registration, BlogTalk, Video Blogs, Podcasts, blogging, reviews of things marketed and geared toward children but aren’t, overall book/movie/TV reviews, resources and events reviews, oh and my favorite, things that are for ‘Adults’ but not ‘Adult’ and more. 

It’s a huge overwhelming project when we started talking about it, but in the long run it sounds like a lot of amazing fun.

And in the long run, while we may not agree on the road back to Heavenly Father, or to Heavenly Father, the most important message to remember is that we are Daughters of Heavenly Father.
