Oops, Almost got killed towards the end of February!!!
Good morning, good afternoon, or good evening, wherever you may be.

I guess I haven't written in a while. Well, I guess I shall delve into why my title for this webologna thingamajiggy entry says what it does.

Anyways, within the past few months, I have been mastering riding the public bus. I was doing well with it.

Now, there was a drawback of having to cross a busy street with fast cars whizzing by. I always figured that the danger was in crossing the street and that once I sat down at the bus stop, I was safe. The second to last week of February, I found out how wrong I was in that assumption.

I had experienced difficulty crossing the street that day, due to a car making a u-turn and heading towards me right as I crossed the street. I had to run to get out of the way of the car.

I made it to the curb and walked to the bus stop. Normally, I would stand right next to the bus pole/sign. However, due to being out of breath, I chose to sit down on the bus bench.
I began to check my phone. I then got a thought, as if from the Holy Spirit, that I should " pay attention to my surroundings. " I looked around, didn't see anything, then looked back at my phone.

I then heard a horrendous noise to my left. I looked left and to my horror, I saw that an suv/sedan had jumped the curb and was headed straight towards me. I froze. As I watched the car hit the trashcan I thought "oh, Jesus! Oh, God!" Time felt like it froze. I thought I was going to die. My mind took a snapshot of the car headed towards me. I thought "do I scream? "And got the thought of "if you're going to scream then do it now."

Suddenly, time unfroze, as I watched the trashcan go flying above my head sailing fifty feet from where it had stood, I began screaming. I looked back right as the car was passing me and briefly saw a bright white light. I then saw the car hit and shatter the bus pole that I had been standing at just a few minutes before. The car continued on the curb a short distance till it hit a telephone pole so hard that the car spun back into the street.

The front of the car was smashed and I couldn't stop shaking.
When the firemen arrived I talked to one who said that I basically had "a front row seat." He said to tell the police what I saw. Moments later, the police arrived. I talked to an officer who said that "had it been over a few feet, I would have been killed. "

I talked to a person who lived near the bus stop who said "someone up above must like me." I said" Thank God! "

As the firemen began to leave, the one that I had talked to earlier, aproached me and said to "count my blessings. "

When the bus finally came, the police signaled it to pick me up a little farther from the area.

As I walked towards the bus, I encountered the elder woman who had been the driver of the suv/sedan. She asked me if I was ok, I said yes. I then asked if she was ok, she said yes. She looked like she wanted to talk more, but the bus was waiting for me, so I said "sorry, I have to go, my bus is here." And left. I went to where I was going and even took the bus home.

I hadn't taken the bus since then...until yesterday.
I am more jumpy around cars now and very leery of being too close to the curb. However, I still plan on taking the bus in the future and I still enjoyed riding the bus, despite what I have survived.

I know it was Jesus/God who saved me. I am extremely grateful that He did.

Anyways, I hope everyone who reads this webologna thingamajiggy is doing ok.

If anyone has read all of this, you have my appreciation!

If I have offended anyone or triggered anyone, I am very sorry.

Thank you for reading!

I hope that I have been more of a blessing and less of a burden.

Finally, I hope you have a Blessed day!
