Close call...

I had to go out of town for a couple of days for business to Ashland, OR.  I love Ashland and actually went to college there so I was excited to be back.  My Regional Vice President was going to be going with me and I was so so excited about that.  She is an amazing person, not to mention she is 6 months pregnant and was not going to be able to make this trip on her own, so this really worked out for us.
We were getting going...about an hour out of town on the freeway and Eva was driving.  We were in a solid line of cars in both lanes of the two lane freeway and everyone going about 65-70 mph.  At the very last minute we saw the car in front of us swurve and the next thing we knew, we were coming up on a HUGE ladder laying sideways in the middle of the fast lane!  Eva turned a hard left and half of the car went over the ladder which did damage to the bottom of the car.  The scariest part was that the car started going back and forth, back and forth, about 6 times...ready to go out of control in any second.  What was going through my mind was that if we did go out of control...we wouldn't make it.  We would have rolled the car and been an massive multiple car pile up on the freeway.  The song "Jesus Take the Wheel" by Carrie Underwood is exactly what happened in our car yesterday!  By the grace of God, Eva was able to straighten that car out and continue on!!!  We pulled off to the side of the road, held hands and thanked God immediately.  I know in my heart, He is the reason that we are still with this world today. :)
