God’s Sovereign Protection

God, in His mercy, chose to protect Itacyara and my sister-in-law Emily from the effects of a serious accident last night. Another driver ran a red-light and collided with their car.

As you can see from the picture below, God’s sovereign protection did not extend to the Rav4 they were driving.

Nobody was seriously hurt in the accident, although Itacyara is still nursing a sore arm. She was sitting in the passenger seat, shown below.

In another act of God’s graciousness, our three-year-old son Nathanael–who was supposed to be with them–ended up staying with me, and thus was not in the crash.
