QUICK RECOVERY FROM AUTO INCIDENT

One afternoon several years ago, I drove up the hill on the mountainside road near where I lived, put the car in park, and got out to check the mailbox. But as soon as I got to the mailbox, the car started to roll down the hill. I ran as fast as I could to stop it. My plan was to somehow turn the steering wheel, forcing the car to run into the brush. So I quickly opened the car door and turned the wheel, but as I did that, the door hit my chest and knocked me down. Then the car rolled over my leg and dragged me for a couple of seconds before releasing me and coming to a stop in the foliage. As all this was happening, I at first felt very afraid, but then quickly turned to God for help. And the thought came, "This is going to be a wonderful healing to share!" Well, that's all it took for me to release the fear and feel that I was in God's complete care.

As I lay still on the asphalt, people stopped to try to help. I'd banged my head and noticed there was bleeding. My hands and one of my legs were also cut and bruised. I was in some pain and didn't feel as if I could easily get up. People wanted to call an ambulance, but I asked them to please go down the hill to my home and get my former husband (who has since passed on).
