I believe I had an angel with me at the time of the auto accident i had a few years ago. I was hit from behind on a busy highway during the morning rush hour. It was a 3 lane highway with the center median diving the north and south lanes. I was in the left lane and was hit so hard that my Cherokee vereed into almost the oncoming traffic, I quickly hugged the wheel and spun into circles from the impact and me slamming my breaks...I went into the the lanes to the right of me and did not get hit by a single car...I then spun back and flipped on the side and bounced back and somewhat ended up where I started. At the moment when I had to take major control of that wheel, I heard in my head and could have been myself thinking this "that now is not the time" for me to die, I cant die now. I did see parts of my life pass in my mind....and then thru the spinning and side flips, ended up back to safety. There were a few witnesses who stopped and the one man told me he could not believe I walked out of my car and was ok also. I think back to that day and also remember when the car finally stopped moving, the first thing I saw was the rosary hanging from my rear view mirror. I believe that if that was not an angel with me, it was God that saved me that day and gave me strength to make it thu it and had all vehicles not hit me. Another amazing part of this was that the damage to my car, was almost like it never happened...scuff marks on tires, no dents anywhere. Was amazing. I believe whole heartedly.
