Counting #211-212

I have my list of things I have been counting this week, and even though each one is significant in and of itself, there are really just two things that I would like to list this week...

211. complete protection from a car accident I was in
212. that this little girl's car seat did it's job and kept her safe when the accident happened


Despite the damage to the car and it needing to be towed and my nerves being shaken, all is well. I've gone over in my mind how if I would have stopped at Hobby Lobby like I had planned then the accident wouldn't have happened. Or, what if I would have taken longer in the grocery store, would it have happened then? I don't know. But I know God is in control and when you experience something like this, it puts it all into perspective how things can change in a split second. So thankful for His protection on us.

I'm linking up to count....

Tears in my eyes, what grace that you're all safe! Nothing scares a mommy's heart like her little ones in danger. I pray your week is filled with reassuring moments of peace and joy!

Every morning when I wake up as I'm drinking my first cup of coffee, I always ask God for a "hedge of protection" around my family. So thankful he heard my prayer regarding my sweet grand-daughter and daughter-in-law. Thank God you and Molly were spared. The car can be replaced. You 2 cannot be.

Thank God you were safe. Having been in accidents, I think you immediately start thinking what if... Again, thank God for his protection.
