Praising the Lord!

I was returning home on a Thursday afternoon and I ran over a piece of metal pipe on the road.  I tried to avoid it but traffic was heavy and I could not change lanes.  The metal pipe made a horrible sound as it hit the undercarriage. Thoughts raced through my mind of possible damage to my vehicle: punctured oil pan, transmission, tires, etc.   As I continued to drive the only thing I noticed was a loud muffler sound. 

The mechanic confirmed that there was a hole in the muffler. It was Friday and the only muffler shop that could check my car was closing in two hours.  I drove the twenty miles hoping my car would not need a new muffler.  The mechanic checked the car and gave me good news. The muffler needed a patch welded and it would take fifteen minutes to fix. He charged me a small fee and I gave him a tip and two GOD STORIES booklets for fixing my car.  I drove home praising the Lord for protecting me and my vehicle and for the opportunity to share God's Word.
