Narrow Escapes

This past weekend my family had a great time in and around Sheboygan, Wisconsin. We also had two very narrow escapes. On Saturday, a teen driving an SUV, without even slowing down, ran a stop sign coming from our left. My wife saw him just in time and slammed on the breaks, averting an almost certain bloody accident. Minutes later a beautiful red-tailed hawk nearly smashed into our windshield, and Christine again expertly applied the breaks.

On Sunday, we were stuck in heavy traffic south of Milwaukee when a terrible thunderstorm packing lighting, driving rain, and hurricane-force winds tore through. All we could do was pray, which we did, and God spared us.

Thank you, Jesus, and thank you, Christine.
