After checking my Facebook this morning, I was reminded of a memory that I hadn’t thought of in a while. So I am sharing. (Sorry for the blog overload in the past few days. I have simply been moving some of my Notes from Facebook to my blog here on Heart Tokens.)

I can’t get this song out of my head after a morning like today. I admit sometimes I take prayer and God’s protection for granted. Before driving many times I ask God to put a hedge around my children and my car.
This morning I felt the need to do this. I just had a feeling. I even took my grandson in my arms and prayed for him before we left. I prayed a hedge over him. After coffee, reading my devotion, Bible verse, and praying, my oldest daughter and I were on the way to take my grandson to the doctor.
We had been following behind an 18 wheeler in the westbound lane of a two-lane highway. While waiting patiently for a chance to pass, a service work truck going in the opposite direction, moved past us eastbound.
As the unexpected happened, it felt like I was viewing everything in slow motion. The tire of the work truck slung a baseball-sized concrete rock into my side of the windshield, sending shattered glass into my lap, all over me, except for my face.
By the grace of God, the rock did not come straight through the windshield! It would have been aimed at my head!!!
No one was hurt. My grandson slept through it all, even though it sounded like we had been shot!
Cars and windshields can be replaced. I am finding more and more every day, those things are unimportant. Thank you Jesus for answered prayer and Your loving protection!!!
🎶I’ve got a new appreciation
It’s not the end of the world…This is the stuff that drives me crazy..In the middle of my little mess
I forget how big I’m blessed
But I’ve gotta trust You know exactly what You’re doing. Might not be what I would choose, but this the stuff You use.🎶~Lyrics by: Francesca Battistelli
