February 6th and a certain mile-marker on I-10 is one of those landmarks for our family. This week -- almost to the day of the accident -- we once again drove down that interstate in Mississippi. We found the place where we had experienced the mercy and protection of our God in such an incredible way. We still marvel at the great things He did in those few seconds that seemed to last for hours.

A sobering reminder of reality. We had recently purchased and remodeled our '84 MCI bus, investing countless hours converting it into a home. And yet, in those few moments, none of us even gave thought to the damage inflicted on the bus. It paled in comparison to our real concern...people. Life and death situations have a way of bringing you face to face with the important things in life.
It was nothing short of miraculous that all 15 of us walked off that bus without so much as a scratch. As we drove that highway once again, our hearts where filled with thanksgiving.
"O Lord GOD, You have begun to show Your servant
Your greatness and Your mighty hand,
for what god is there in heaven or on earth who can do anything
like Your works and Your mighty deeds?"
