Nearly every morning Erica and I go on a walk. On our walk we pray about our friends and family, the day at hand, our future, and for protection for each other. Well today our walk got interrupted. As we were crossing a main street near Warner Brothers Studios a crazy man nearly ran us over. Seriously.
We were in the middle of the crosswalk (we had the right of way) when a silver car zipped around the corner. When he saw us he didn't slow down, but instead sped up. It all happened so fast that I barely had time to push Erica out of the way and just barely missed getting hit myself. The car was so fast and so close that it nicked my pant legs.
Thank God for prayer and answers to prayer, because with as fast as it all happened we did not have much time to think in the moment. Had I not pushed Erica out of the way she most definitely would have been hit. To be honest I am not fully sure how I avoided getting hit either. All of the other cars stopped on the busy street to see if we were alright, because it was so close they all thought we HAD been hit. I believe one of the cars even tried to follow the silver car to get his plates.
So after are heart rates returned to normal we finished our walk and our prayer. It is turning out to be a good Thursday after all.
