Visiting Earth on a Guest Pass

To be sure it's heard, since I'm not at all sure mine are on the A-list right now.....

I'd like to ask that anyone who sees this stop for a few seconds and thank the Deity that the chunk of cement someone chucked off the overpass tonight hit my car's doorpost and exploded, rather than landing six inches left, where it would have punched through the windshield and killed Ratette..... I lost a windshield but not a wife.

....help me out here, eh? At this moment I'm not convinced that what I'm sayin' is getting through the clutter (or should).....but I'm grateful.

Wow, thank God!  I am so very glad neither of you were hurt.

For the sake of a foot the woman was saved
in prayers of relief the pathway was paved
in giving of thanks the new heart was made
and all for the sake of a foot

For the sake of relief a new way was found
and giving of thanks became heaven bound
laughter flew forth instead of a shroud
and all for the sake of relief

prayers shall arise in the giving of thanks
from those who know and those in the ranks
those with God's ears and those near his shanks
shall give out the blessing of thanks

I can pass on my thanks to God's ear but he is more likely to listen to you because you are the centre of this tapestry.
Keth

Here in the midst of my lonely abyss, a single joy I find...your presence in my mind.  Unknown

Your request would be my pleasure... however, if He is going to listen to a Marine AND a musician (neither profession of which is known to be very pious) then you should have no hassles.

We are all equal but we’re individually different
and able to reach the impossible if we try.

We don't often recognize miracles...until they scare the heck out of us.  Yes, I'll thank God, and His angels, and never stop believing in miracles...of all kinds.

Give your wife a warm hug from your poet friends.

The noise was so loud that someone in another car called police about someone shooting a gun....

We ok, but Ratette's almost-new car has looked better....sigh....we were thinking about riding up into the San Gabriel Mountains today, but I guess that ain't gonna happen......

She did get a little glass shower, but that beats the heck out of cement hail!

Believe me dear leader of one of God's creatures, He is hearing you loud and clear! It is all about intent--and your thankful intentions are ringing throughout the Universe!

P.S. and don't forget to thank the intervening angels!

I am so sorry that your weekend plans have gone down the tube... but so very, very grateful you're dealing with aggravation instead of tragedy.

I've been pleading with and/or nagging God almost constantly lately... I'm sure He will be glad to hear thanks coming from my lips instead... *S* I am SO glad, my friend, that you and Ratette are both safe.

YIKES! That must have terrifeid both of you!
I have no direct line to any powerful figures, but 'poetic justice' calls for intervention...may the creature that did that dirty deed be re-gifted with a pair of concrete gloves.

OK, OK, vengeance isn't mine.

But what if the overpass is simply falling apart due to lack of long term highway maintenance? Is that a possibility?

Ed, I am very glad niether of you were hurt.What a sick thing for someone to do.Sounds like that even if you and God are not on the same wavelength, he was looking out for you anyway.

Smiling...I don't believe any of us here need to tell Him how grateful you are, I'm sure He's hearing you just fine. But on another note, I'm glad you both are okay, quite frightening I'd imagine.

I walk with your shadow
With your silhouette
Leave the light on
It always comes
Back to you

Ed, I also thank God that His Angels of protection
were watching over you and your Ratette.
Give her a heart hug for me and keep one for yourself, too....
