In the first bulletin of this year (dated January 4, 2017) I wrote about my experience being involved in an automobile accident late last year. (Remember? The guy didn’t have insurance, so the next time he tries to renew his license or registration, he’s in trouble!)
Actually that incident had several unexpected and positive results. First, I felt so loved because several personal injury attorneys contacted me because they saw I was in an accident and care about me! Isn’t that special!!
I also got a new rear door, bumper and spare tire case on my car...now they don’t match the rest of the car with the car door dings, etc...but it is nice to have part of the car look new again.
Third, before the accident my 6 CD disc changer was not working. It had 6 of my CD’s in it and would not play or eject them. I don’t know what possessed me, but before I took my car to the repair shop, I tried to eject them...and they ejected (except for the disc in #3...which has been stuck for quite a while). Now the “was going to be replaced at Christmas stereo in my car” works fine.
I mentioned this to the repair shop guy and he said something may have just been jammed and the jolt from the collision unjammed it. I think his name is Holmes...Sherlock Holmes.
Anyway, the wreck I experienced on December 20 was not fun at the time. It became even less fun when I learned the guy who hit me did not have insurance.
But now I know that several law firms care about me (cough, cough). I have a car that looks about 1/3 new. And I have a CD player in my car that actually plays 5 of 6 CD’s.
While I won’t say the wreck was a “good” experience, I will say, “And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good…” (see Romans 8:28).
