After a few minutes, she got out of the car to inspect the damage, which we both saw was minimal. As we started talking, she shared that she was on her way to the hospital to visit her father who was having heart problems and wouldn’t listen to the doctors. This, on top of losing her mother two years ago, was what I was seeing as melodrama. Can I tell you I felt guilty for my mean thoughts?
I asked for her father’s name, explaining I was on my way to churchand would pray for him, and would ask the prayer team to pray for him as well. Her eyes lit up and we made an instant connection. I think the police and emergency people were surprised by our behavior when they arrived. She kept defending me, saying it was the driver in front of her who stopped for no apparent reason that caused the accident.
- One of my earthly father’s favorite sayings, “Accidentally on purpose” This was his usual reply to my defense of, “I did it by accident.”
- God is very involved in the details and He turns all things to the good.
