Yesterday started like any other day, but it could have ended like no other. Hubby and I went to the apartment clubhouse to study and work. Before long, he left for class as usual.
Not by coincidence I’m sure, we also heard an interesting story yesterday. We heard the story of a husband and wife who kiss, exchange “I love you’s,” and pray every time they leave one another. They do this even if they’re just running out to the store.
Hubby and I chuckled about this story, because it seemed to be so extreme. I didn’t know that he could have lost his life minutes later. We take so much for granted…
A short while later, he called me and told me that he had been in an accident. I assumed it had been a fender bender, but when he told me the details and how they had shut down the highway, my heart sank. I realized that it was only God’s protection that had spared my husband’s life. The story we’d heard earlier that day didn’t seem so extreme after all.
Being young and only married a few years, I haven’t really thought about losing my husband. I’m so glad I didn’t lose him. We have another day to love one another. Thank You Jesus.
