Several years ago, I was driving and came to a blind curve and hill. As I rounded the curve and started down the hill, a car was in my lane. They were passing a semi truck on the hill. This is a narrow two lane road, with only about a two foot shoulder and a ditch about 3 feet deep. There is just enough roadway for two vehicles. The speed limit is 55mph. When we were where we could see each other there was no time to react. We were about ten feet from each other, and neither of us had anywhere we could go. I swerved hard to the right and as I said these words aloud, "O sweet Jesus", all three vehicals passed each other safely. My car was a large car as was the other one, and semi's are huge. I was the only one to react. There is a road sign there and about twelve feet past the sign is a utility pole. My car missed all of that as well as never leaving the road. If you were to see this curve you could easily see that this senario is physically impossible. The only way this could happen is by devine intervention. I spent the next 5 miles crying and thanking God.
