It’s a Miracle in the Form of a Shovel


🚗 We were driving down the freeway and saw a piece of metal get hit by the car in front of us but there was only a small “ting” when it hit so it appeared to have gone under our car.

A few miles down the road and people were pointing at our car as they showed something to their passengers.

🏠 Upon arriving home we found THIS.  


A few inches higher and it would have gone through our windshield and straight through Carrian.

1/2” deeper and it would have hit our radiator.

Every time we travel we say a 🙏🏻 prayer before leaving for safety for ourselves and others on the road and we are grateful for that protection. ❤

“Has the day of miracles ceased? Behold I say unto you, Nay’ ‘My beloved brothers and sisters, I testify of angels, both the heavenly and the mortal kind. In doing so I am testifying that God never leaves us alone, never leaves us unaided in the challenges that we face. [N]or will he, so long as time shall last, or the earth shall stand, or there shall be one man [or woman or child] upon the face thereof to be saved. On occasions, global or personal, we may feel we are distanced from God, shut out from heaven, lost, alone in dark and dreary places. Often enough that distress can be of our own making, but even then the Other of us all is watching and assisting. And ALWAYS there are those angels who come and go all around us, seen and unseen, known and unknown, mortal and immortal.” Jeffrey R. Holland

❤❤We promise he is there and knows specifically you. ❤❤

  • I ask God to keep me, family, friends and strangers safe on the road. First thing I do when I get in the driveway is to thank him for getting me home.

  • Carrian & Cade,
    I usually don’t post comments but your post inspired me to.
    I always say a prayer when I get into a car (mainly because I’m a terrible driver). I believe God is always watching over me, especially when I’m driving. Yesterday, I was making a left turn don’t have a clue where this car came from but there he was right in front of me, I missed hitting him by inches.
    I swore I looked to the right and then left, saw no one coming and pulled out but there he was. As it turned out we were going to the same place (groceries), so I was able to apologize. Thank goodness he had a heart ❤️
    Praise the Lord is all I can say🙏
