To pause is to inhale life slowly, reflectively. – Linda J. Wolff
In this, “Soul Survival Quote Seedling,” I write of an incident that made me believe of angels, helped me believe I had a purpose to write. The 1983 Jeep Cherokee spins, 365 degrees of tires and black ice. Snow flying like darts with a northern wind. I correct the steering only to ride this Ferris Wheel ride again. I hit the brakes but its too late.
Tires grab the embankment; the Jeep flips, I see a video playing in rewind. Upright now in a snowy field, blinking through a shattered window, winter seeps in. I just sit. Rapping on the window. Voices. Voices yelling “Are you OK? I nod yes, realizing GOD sent his angel with better plans.
I can’t explain to the police officer why I am not cut or bruised, especially since there was shattered glass everywhere. My ribcage molded itself around the center console. But I did not hurt, nor was there any pools of blood. I came from the wreckage unscathed. GOD had put his hand upon me or an angel watched over me. What’s your analogy of this incident?
Just cause they say you’re done.
Doesn’t mean anything.
There’s still a seedling of hope inside you.
