Angels watching over me!


I have always loved the song "Angels watching over me," by Amy Grant. The song says, "Angles watching over me every move I make, angles watching over me. Angels watching over me every step I take, angels watching over me. God only know the times my life was threatened just today. A reckless car ran out of gas before it ran my way. Near messes all around me, accidents unknown. I only know the hand of God safely leads me home." I was reminded of this song last night.
Last night we were eating dinner with our friends the Sticklers and the Paynes. Judson and Morgan Stickler are very best friends. They can really get into some messes. After dinner they decided to go in the bathroom in the playroom and wash the dishes. What a precious mess they mades. All of Morgan's plastic dishes and a few toys are now squeaky clean. Once we found them, Darby and I began drying all their clean dishes. Morgan and Judson went to Morgan's room to find some dry clothes for Morgan. All of a sudden I heard Ann running down the hall saying "Oh no, What's the matter?" As I ran down the hall I heard Judson and Morgan SCREAMING!! When I walked in Morgan's room I got a very sick feeling in my stomach. Her dresser was laying on her bed. They were trying to climb the dresser to get Morgan's clothes and it fell on them. Morgan had a busted lip and a scratch on her back. Judson didn't have any wounds, but was pretty shaken up.
I truelly believe there were angels all around them protecting them. They could have been seriously injured if the dresser hadn't hit the bed. Thank you God for protecting our 2 precious children!!!

Amen, sister! :) Morgan keeps telling everyone the story and in the end she says, "God protected me!" And we all certainly believe it and know it! I'm so glad they were both ok and that little Raiger wasn't at their feet, like she normally is!!!

Do you remember the near boating accident when you were younger? I know angels protected you that day! So many times I've seen the hand of God in all of our lives protecting, providing and ministering in difficult times. I am blessed by your insight, perception and wisdom!
