For my dear sister Maria

My awakening

This was the beginning of my understanding of the great depth of God's love, His sacrifice, and my salvation......

Twas a dark foggy drive a chill was in the air
This morning started out no different as it had done for years.
But coming round the bend I saw with fright my fate
The elbow cornered curve and hastily did brake
For sure I lost control and to a culvert met
The collision sent me airwards gaining forceful threat
Spiraled, twisted, turning - a distance I was thrown
But on earthly impact shattered metal, glass and bone
Blessed to be unconscious even more to be alive
Then it was a mystery how it was that I survived.
Panic heightened from the blood running in my eyes
Reaching for my legs in shock I realized
I couldn't feel my flesh - only cold sharp steel
My leg was trapped inside the space that used to house the wheel.
I cried my self unconscious but awoke to hear my name
I felt strangely different as though I'd never be the same.
Suddenly now standing in the open air I stumble
Abrogating gravity had made me very humble
The man who called me forward told me all was well
I truly felt at peace and spoke with him some more
I've had no thought of death till then or what the consequence would be
I gave no thought to God I had only lived for me
The ambulance arrived and the paramedics wheeled me in
I begged to thank the man but, the paramedic saying with a grin
"There was no one standing with you, you really took a blow.
If someone else was standing there we surely would have known."

Hebrews 1:14
Are not all angels spirits that serve Him--whom He sends out to render service for the benefit of those who, before long, will inherit salvation? (WEY NIV)
