Do you believe in angels?

I do. And I believe God sent one down to protect me today...maybe even save my life.

Daddy and J went out to get haircuts and I got on the road to the outlet mall in search of J's Christmas outfit for Christmas pictures tomorrow. I was driving on the main highway to get to the interstate and the speed limit is 55mph. I was going 50mph in the middle lane. All of a sudden an SUV merges onto the highway and hops directly in front of me going VERY slow. I had to hit my breaks and of course I was thinking "WTH are you doing?!?!" As soon as I thought that another SUV ran a red light and was crossing the higway I was driving on along with several other cars. I don't believe this lady knew she ran the red light b/c when she saw all of the cars coming at her and swerving off the highway, she slammed on her brakes and stopped in the middle lane,directly in front of the SUV, right where I would have been had that SUV not hopped in front of me. Not to mention, I was going 50mph before the SUV slowed me down. Cars on the right side of me swerved off to the side, horns were blowing, brakes were screeching, but the SUV in front of me simply slowed down with no effort and so did I b/c I was caught behind it going about 30 by then. Had I still been going 50mph, I am almost certain I would have collided with the lady running the light. So I have no idea who it was driving that SUV that cut me off and mad me angry, but thank you God for sending that angel to keep me safe. In fact, thank you God for sending that angel to keep EVERYONE on the road (including the lady that ran the light) safe!!
