Chapter 1: The Log Truck

It was nearly 5 pm on Wednesday afternoon when my father would always call my mother to say, “I’m coming home, do you need anything before I come home?” This particular day was different. When 5pm arrived my father was caught up working on an emergency that had came in at a quarter until 5pm. Usually, if my father didn’t call my mother before 5 p.m. she would call him to check on him and see what was keeping him from coming home. However, her mother had called to talk about something going on with her aunt’s health. This completely side tracked my mother from realizing the time.

This was completely unusual that neither of them were calling the other and were completely side tracked. It wasn’t until 5:45 p.m. that either of them had realized the time was nearly an hour past their regular time to call each other. My father usually quit work around 5pm but not this day. It was close to a quarter until six when he finished up with the emergency that happened right before closing time. Usually, if he didn’t call my mother would come to the office to check on my dad and I. This wasn’t the case this day since her mother had called and distracted her with the news about her aunt being sickly.

At 5:45 p.m. my father called my mother and said we are coming home. As we loaded up and began riding toward home we happened upon an automobile accident involving a tractor trailer log truck and a car. The couple in the car died at the scene of the auto accident with the truck that had crossed the center line. As we stopped and waited my dad asked about what time did the accident occur and the state trooper said around 5:10 p.m. This was approximately the time that we always passed through this point on our way to our home each and everyday. On this one day however, our guardian angel was watching over us and because of a miracle of Heaven I’m alive today to write about this mishap that occurred over 35 years ago.

Since this time, I do believe that we are all spared at times in order to be able to tell others such as I have been able to tell you my story. This was a miracle that came from Heaven.

Chapter 2: Time Line of Purpose Thoughts:

You know I don't believe that we are just placed here to float through life. I feel that we all have a connection and a contribution to make on this Earth during the time that we are here. The reason I say this is because if it were not for Thomas Edison with the light bulb and Menlo Park along with Alexander Graham Bell with the telephone. The technology wouldn’t have allowed Bill Gates to develop Microsoft or Steve Jobs to help develop the iPad. If the later had come first then what would they have invented or would they have even invented anything? That is just my tidbit to ponder on.
