About a year ago I got in a car accident. I hit a power pole and rolled over with the power pole on top of my car. I crawled out of the window and ran a ways down the street, dropped to the ground thaking God for saving my life and that no one was involved or hurt. I work in healthcare and know the great miricle of this accident. I saw pictures of the car and the pole was inces away from my head. I remember everything, including the fact that the impact seemed to be cushioned by something more than just the air bag. In fact I didn't see the air bag go off. For the rest of the week I was so confused as to why I was allowed to live. I prayed for an answer each night for hours. An angel came to me in deep prayer and answered mentally to be more like me. With this voice still in my head I bolted up and began to think about how I could be more like an angel. Then I thought about what exactly an angel is and that led me to who the King of Angels is and back to Jesus Christ, Mary and the Holy Spirit. I am forever grateful and growing in Christ. My prayer go out to everyone, especially those who are confused in faith.
