Small Mercies, Large Mercies


I was on my way to a delightful church function yesterday morning at 10:00 a.m. While making a left turn on a green light, a large vehicle (I drive a small car) ran a red light and slammed into my driver side.  After the dust had settled I was amazed when a policeman told me my car would be taken to a pound as a write-off while I walked away, (or crawled away as I couldn’t exit the driver’s side) with a painful right wrist.

A visit to a nearby hospital emergency, insisted upon by paramedics, confirmed that the wrist was not broken and would likely be painful for a couple of days. After reassuring everyone that I suffered no other pain, and had not so much as a scratch on me, I came home to ponder the events of the day. I took some extra strength Tylenol and prayed my way into a much needed nap.

How often do we go about our days taking everything for granted, not knowing one minute what the next minute holds.

For the rest of my life I will not forget to thank God for small mercies…although I do believe this was a very large mercy. TYG!

For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; Psalm 91:11
