    it was not your fault — it was hers. no need to take the blame!

    Too, I am glad you are okay. And I’m thankful you shared the other thoughts…much needed word in this season.

    Did you at least dent her truck? Maybe leave a little blood on it?

    At any rate, glad you’re ok. And the bike too.

    Good thoughts. Glad you’re OK. Glad the Psalms are in the Bible. Glad I’m never invisible to God. Thank you….

    Got hit by a truck 20+ years ago now coming up 15th Street in DC rush hour traffic–truck door, into shoulder, fell sideways but did not go down in front of a car. Grace. Accidents just happen. Grace does not. I am reminded that the root of apostasy is the failure to remember. I forgot about that until today. Thanks for reminding me David of how God cares for us. Put a stone down on this one, too.

    Every time I get angry at a car, I try to remember that there are pedestrians whom I have wronged while on my bike. That being said, while I realize either of you could have been at fault, the driver’s lack of demonstrated concern for your condition reveals incorrectly ordered priorities. It is a good reminder of the importance of keeping ourselves centered on others.

    This reminds me of the riveting sermon you gave at TFC about the bike ride you mistakenly took on the GW parkway. You are a tough guy…you must have had on the whole armour of God this time too. I am so glad you are all right.
