My Hand Control Driving

inside my Smart car

Thank You Lord!

is what I said as I looked up and saw that.....

I was inches from hitting the car in front of me.

I believe the reason I looked up at the right time was that small still voice thought from God.

I almost had a near fender bender because:

I was distracted by that bag of food in the picture
I was tired
I am not used to these new hand controls

I will stick by my excuses, however,

 Distracted Driving is Dangerous!

Well, distraction IS bad, but, I'd like big bags of food anytime ;-)

i nearly rear ended a car because I looked down at the radio dial for a split second, looked up and traffic was stopped. it only takes a split second, so glad you looked up in time. your steering wheel is adorable.

You are right Distracted Driving Is Dangerous!!!

I am so very thankful God had his protectin' hand on you.

Yes, detracted driving is a most dangerous monster.

I'm just thrilled you have your little hand's free car.

God bless and have a fantabulous day sweetie!!! :o)

Thankful your safe. BTW, the knob on your steering wheel 'used' to be called a necker-knob...lol

It can happen so fast with any of us! Glad your guardian angel watched over you!!

So happy that you looked up at the right time.

Thank goodness you heeded the voice, Kim!

i have seen the steering knob but never actually used it myself. i imagine it would take some time to get used to. i nearly rear-ended someone recently. close calls are scary but make me a more defensive driver, which is always good.

Glad you are okay :)

Joanne said...

Thank God is right! So happy you are ok! That must have been very scary.
Blessings, Joanne

Thanks to God that you were safe and in time preserved from a collision.You are a brave woman, and I am glad you are one of our bloggers!

Debbie said...

Thank God you heard and listened to the prompting of God! I think it will just take some time to get used to, but I totally agree about distraction.

I had a SCARY moment last year at Christmas because I was so busy thinking about my "to do" list.

so glad you are ok...hand controls...wow, maybe that would give me more confidence...but not too much...driving IS dangerous. It has been a year since I've been behind the wheel.
