The day my Guardian Angel saved my life
If it weren’t for my Guardian angel’s help on this particular day, I believe I would very likely not be here.
“See, I am sending an angel before you, to guard you on the way and bring you to the place I have prepared, Be attentive to him and heed his voice.” Exodus 23:20-21a
It all started when I had my tires rotated. Afterward, it seemed like the car was acting odd. I asked my husband about it and he said that they were just not worn evenly so that was making them feel different so I kept on driving on them.
A few days later, I was late for work. I got on the highway and went directly to the left lane. (Something I almost never do!). My car was heading down a steep hill at 85 mph onto a bridge under construction. Suddenly my car started to slide back and forth. Almost like I was driving on ice but way worse! I was driving a car that can easily flip over, straight into the construction barriers.
I heard a voice that said, “Take your foot off the accelerator and move to the right lane.” I took my foot off the accelerator and did not touch the breaks. I suspect if I would have slammed on the breaks, I definitely would have flipped and you would not be reading this now. I slowly kept driving in the right lane the rest of the way to work.
Once at work, I was talking to some of the guys and they said that it could be a loose lug nut on my tire. So at lunch which was only 30 minutes, I went down the street to the tire place at noon. They had no other cars there! I told them what happened and they looked at my tires. They brought me over to the car and showed me that for one of the tires ALL the lug nuts where loose. When my tires had been rotated, they forgot to tighten that tire’s lug nuts! One of the lug nuts had completely broken off! The tire shop was able to fix it enough for me to make it back to my home town.
Miraculously, I was able to get back to work before the end of lunch. (Have you ever spent less than 30 minutes at an auto repair shop?!) After work I drove back to the place in my home town that rotated my tires and they fixed the tire.
I’m very grateful to God and my guardian angel for protecting me on that day.
