A missile projectile, called a Dodge Charger, ran through a stop light smashing into Susie Crowell’s car.

Several months ago I wrote in the Words of Hope about Jay Williams book, LIFE IS NOT AN ACCIDENT; His story of his near fatal motorcycle crash.

Today I write about my wife Susie Crowell’s near fatal crash. Susie came out of it with a broken sternum, possible concussion, two sprained ankles, a bruise on her back and I never quit attitude.  

Susie’s dear friend came out of it with a broken neck, three broken ribs, a punctured hole in her lungs and a badly bruised body.  

Was Jay Williams correct when he said life is not an accident? As I watch Susie and Neta battle through with hard work, prayer and positive attitude, I’m encouraged to believe life is no accident.   

Once again I am reminded that life is precious, health is golden, love is enduring; all the pain, all the sorrows of all the accidents are worth the many rewards living life fully offers.

As always I try to link life experience with motivational and inspirational scripture. My first thoughts go to Peters words, “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” – 2 Timothy 3:16-17

Another scripture passage that pops into mind, is Jesus’s remarkable passage about the worries of life, “Do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? “Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? “And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life?” – Matthew 6:25-27
