Jesus Took The Wheel

We were driving the road--in our lane--heavy traffic.......Carrie Underwood's song "Jesus Take The Wheel" was playing on Ashley's phone with the girls singing at the top of their lungs.  Then it happened--in a split second--in slow motion.  A taxi cuts in front of our lane, going from the right lane to make a left hand turn.  I slam of the brakes for this crazy taxi driver to turn in front of us (later we would find yellow paint dust on the front bumper where he grazed us).  The taxi turns--horns blaring from stopped traffic during rush hour and from my mirror I see a traffic cop running toward the the taxi who is stopped in traffic trying to cross the next intersection.  I hope he got a fine.....he deserved it....if he caused an accident it would have been his fault.  But, he did not sideswipe us or put a dent in our fender.  Why?  Because Jesus took the wheel.  He took it from my hand for a split second.  Thank you Lord for your protection from crazy drivers.  Amen!
