Just what I didn't need...... I some how broke my glasses yesterday afternoon. I thought that I might be able to get a little more wear out of them though. I mean it's not like I've only had these glasses for like 15 years. So this morning I go into work, check the calendar, then ask my boss if I can leave a little early so that I can go have my eyes examined and order new glasses. Thank goodness she was okay about it.
So, I leave my office about an hour and 15 minutes early. The weather was overcast with storms brewing. Typical summer weather in Florida. I was driving along in the busy traffic, wet roads, and so on. I was approaching a busy intersection where there was an on ramp to a major interstate, when the light turned yellow. I thought I could stop in time, but I couldn't. My car started sliding.... Everytime I tapped my brakes my car would start to fishtail....... So I just said "sweet Jesus", and went sliding through one red light, and almost another. I thought, if a cop is around I will suck it up and take the ticket. I was praying that I didn't hurt someone else or myself. I made it through......no cops and everything still intact. I didn't think much more about it until one of my younger brothers called me. I was complaining about having to just drop $300 for an eye exam and new glasses. I said that I didn't understand why God didn't answer my personal prayers. He will answer when I pray for other, but my prayers go unanswered. Then like a lightning bolt from the sky...... I said, wait just a minute! He answered my prayers........... When I went sliding through the traffic light and intersection I could have been injured badly or gotten killed. Worse than that, I could have killed someone. I told my brother that $300 is not a bad price for having my life. Sometimes when you don't think the big guy unpstairs is listening, he is.
