Thnaks for letting me Live

(Caribou,ME )

The summer started out with long days spent with the best friend Jessie. She spent time up in Caribou, where i live, for a few weeks, and then i went down to Bangor, where she lives. When we arrived down there, everything was great, we laughed to the point of crying, we went to the mall and took pictures, and goofed around in Home Depot(the place that knows us by name,lol, in a good way:) This particular day, we decided to go to the Bangor Mall. We went into Macys, and we were playing hide and seek in the bedding/home essentials department. As we were playing, we decided to go to Justice, so as we were gunna go down the escilator, Jessie told me my shoelace was untied, but we were so much in a hurry to get to Justice(our favorite store) I decided to tie it at the bottom, BAD IDEA. it was either my shoelace or pant leg that i triped over. I took a crash down the escuator. I knew a pastor from a penecostal church up home by the name of Brother Vincent. He was in charge of the christian school i was attending that year. anyways, as i fell, he and a buisness buddy were walking into the store and seen a girl fall. at the time, they did not know it was me. He ran and pressed the emergancy button. I was sooo close to having my hair go down into the machine, and be scalped, but thanks to him, i escaped that. I was out cold. An ambulance came and took me to eastern maine medical center, where i was put into a trauma center there. I escaped the crash with a few dark spots on my brain, a slightly cracked cheekbone, and scrapes up my back, but it could of been worse, i could have been scalped. As I was lying in the hospital bed with nurses all around, i recieved a phone call. it was a man who sounded familiar, but didnt register who it was, as i was just waking up. It was brother vincent. I feel it was God who put him there at that moment to protect me. Now he lives 3 hours away from Bangor, but just happened to be in that store, as i was falling. He and his buddy needed to pick up something on their way back home. I cant belive that Jesus would do anything like this, but He is all good. i could have died that day, but God loves us, and it wasnt my time. I thank God for giving me my life, and letting me live. Thank you Jesus:)

Keri I am really glad and thankful for what happened right there in your life. It could only be explained as God's hand and protection over your life. Just reading your story has really encouraged me today that God will not let us fall too far. He is there to catch us.

How are you now?
I'll pray for you as you recover, that you would fully recover.

Love you girlie,
Let God's hand be always be over your life.
