As a school bus driver, this is truly our worst nightmare. The moment, the slow seconds, where we see disaster coming is the worst feeling in the world. We'd throw ourselves in front of that car to save your child, but we sit there helpless hoping somehow what we see potentially happening is avoided. I'm guessing it will be a time before that bus driver is able to get back behind the wheel.
Ironic, how I was just mentioning this to my husband 10 seconds before I saw this article on the front page of Yahoo!
It speaks of those who rely on their own reasoning - they wind up WRONG and follow whatever the majority turns to. With very simply influence, people got elementary and obvious things wrong simply because of relying on self and allowing fear to run and dictate their actions.
This past weekend was a weird one for us weather wise. Saturday was beautiful - sunny, no humidity, in the 70's. Sunday it was in the 80's, humid. Waking up yesterday morning I started out in shorts, tshirt and barefoot and graduated to pants and socks and eventually a fuzzy warm sweater. The day clouded over, the wind picked up and if I didn't know that the calendar said it was the end of May I'd have thought it to be early fall. It was just plain chilly!

These days the Spirit is moving in ways that to me sound like a freight train. A quiet one, slowly building, calling and speaking to those who are His. If you can hear it, it's a beautiful and spirit filling quickening like a freight train you cannot ignore. Hear it. If you don't, seek it. Be now what is eternal through faith, be dead to sin and alive in Christ.
25"For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will

Catchy tune, eh?
We've got a winter storm a brewin' here that is a nasty one. I had no idea it was going to be this bad until I overheard at work that schools were closing and the truck drivers were making comments for us to get out of Dodge or stay put. After checking the radar and growing list of school closings it took me, oh, about 5 seconds to decide that after I finished a few things I was heading home. Rural open roads aren't a pleasure to drive in a howling Minnesota winter
