I didn’t know what to call this post… so I called it what I’m about to tell you gives me. Goosebumps.
This isn’t going to be anything long – a super fast read really. This is something that occurred to me not long after my husband passed away back in July & as I’m sitting here reflecting on the past 4 months and I started thinking about it again. I figured I’d share what gives me goosebumps.
I had collided with a semi truck going about 45 mph just a few days before. The date of the accident was exactly 30 days before Michael passed away. It was a bad accident, as you can well imagine with hitting a semi truck and all. But by a miracle, I walked away without any life threatening injuries. A little battered, bruised, & sore… but I walked away. I had an angel that my mother gave me clipped to the visor above my head & right before my face collided with the airbag, I saw it sparkle out of the corner of my eye. Not a light-just-hit-it sparkle… but a full on sparkle. It effected me so much that I wrote that post. Needless to say, that angel is in my new car to this date.
It literally sends shivers up & down my spine..and goosebumps on my arms when I think about it. 30 days to the date. To me, as sad as it is, someone upstairs knew that we were going to lose our precious Michael… and our 3 children were about to need me more than ever.
Lots of shivers down my spine. Tons of goosebumps. Super thankful to still be here with my kids. I need them just as much as they need me. ~Crystal ♥
The angels were watching over you Crystal; you have come a long way; God bless
Oh Crystal, God knew what he was doing when he protected you, He loves you. I lost my husband, I had 6 kids to still love and be needed by and I always remember to thank Him for that.
Oh, Crystal, I am so sorry for the loss of your husband. I had no idea – I joined your blog after that date and didn’t read up on your history; I am sorry.
Aside from the fact that you survived at all, I find it amazing that your vehicle was a total loss, but you and your angel made it out.
Blessings to you and your children. You are so strong.
Our Lord is watching over us. He knows what lies ahead of us and prepares us to make it through the storm. I have witnessed this personally. Blessings to you and your precious children. Keep and eye on God, for He is the lighthouse that brings us home when it is stormy.
Gave me goosebumps and tears. Life can be so cruel, it would be easy to mire in that dark. I’m so thankful that you are letting light in. I know Michael is so proud of you! Always in my thoughts and prayers!
Bless you & your children as you toil through these hard times. I remember how hard it was to lose my soulmate & 24 years later I still think of him nearly every day (it just doesn’t hurt now). God has a purpose for your lives & He will see to it that you accomplish those purposes.
Thank you for sharing that, Crystal. God’s grace is so precious…You and your children are in my thoughts and prayers. Christ’s peace and richest blessings…
There is always someone watching over us if we just let them in-God Bless.
