Saved from death

Location: N/A

By: Sylvia

In the first years of my marriage, after the birth of my son Mike, I was terribly depressed. I wanted to commit suicide, and pointed my car toward a ten foot concrete wall and pressed the gas pedal. The car moved forward, then, Someone touched my thigh, and said, very audibly, "You are not done yet." All the depression was gone, all the suicidal feelings were gone, I was at total peace. A year later, I gave birth to my daughter, Mary Barbara and even though my marriage ended in divorce, I now have children and grand-children. Praise God!
