Some people call it coincidence. Some Karma. Some Luck. Some Intuition.
We call it the providence of God.
There are many times in our lives, where looking back we can see the hand of God. He is there guiding events, directing situations, leading us forward.
Usually when Magoo has a nap it is a rare occurrence. He is great though, and I don't have to worry about him. Usually I will grab the spare hour or so and weed the veggie patch, knit, call a friend. I nearly never have to check on him.
Yesterday I was sitting at the computer checking Arutz-7 news with Princess and had this very strong urge to check Magoo. I had no idea why, didn't really think about it at the time. Just got up and told Princess that I had to go check Magoo while he was napping.
I opened the door to find my son asleep, gasping for breath.
All I could think was, hospital RIGHT NOW. Since we live a bit in the country and going by past experience I knew it would be faster to drive there myself. I scooped him and Sprout up in my arms and RAN downstairs and threw them into the car and strapped him and the girls in.
Slight problem. We had only JUST arrived home from a week and a half up on Manitoulin Island and basically the trailer and car had vomited up all its contents all over the garage and house.
My purse was no-where. His health card was in my purse.
Get the kids out of the car.
by now his checks were pinpricked with burst blood vessels and his lips were turning purple.
And yes I told the operator off when she told me to NOT comfort my child as he was getting oxygen if he was crying.
Then of all things the doorbell rang.
Our neighbour is a volunteer firefighter and had been napping, he got the page and was there.
As it took the ambulances ten minutes!
4 firefighters (gotta love the fact the one from Home Hardware arrived on a bike, only in the village we live in!)
SIL arriving at my house to take care of the girls right away. The fact that the family all lives within 4 kms. Such a blessing.
Magoo is now home. Thanksgiving is pouring from our lips and hearts that Yhwh saw fit to spare him.
May you see God's hand in your life as well.
