Yesterday was the nine year anniversary of the car crash that nearly killed our entire family. A 8 time drunk driver came across the median on the interstate and hit us head-on at 70 mph. Our world changed that day in so many ways and none of us were ever going to be the same. At one point I was given a 1 in 100 chance of survival after 8 hours of surgery just to get me to those odds. I never imagined that I would be now calling that day one of the BEST days of our lives.
We were saved physically and spiritually that day by a multitude of angels who were placed in our lives. Dr. Jerry Lang, my primary surgeon at the hospital and his gifted team, the EMT’s who got us out of the mangled car and stabilized us until we got to the hospital, as well as all the friends and family that helped pull us through were all angels to us.
My book “Getting to Heaven By Going Through Hell” tells how this terrible day didn’t destroy our family but saved it in a very real way. We could have never foreseen how it would but this was God’s plan, not ours. We did not know it but we HAD to get into that crash for our family to survive.
Like I always say, “If you want to hear God laugh, just tell Him your plan.”
