Run over by a truck!!! [Christian Material]greenspun.com : LUSENET : Freedom! self reliance : One Thread
The old 1934 Chevy truck was loaded full of 90# bags of fertlizer. I sure did want to ride on it but pap said "NO" -you'll fall off! He set me on the left front fender of that old 36 Chevy car and told me to stay there. He went ahead and got inside the truck and started to move it towared the barn so's he cold unload it. I just coldn't stand sett'n there on that car while a perfectly good ride went without me. I jumped down when he wasn't watch'n and ran about 10 feet to the truck. STarted clim'n up the left rear duel wheel. When I got one foot on top of the outside duel the truck moved forward. Down I went and next thing I knew the truck was runn'n over me. I hollered! Pap Stopped! I shuldn't have hollered. He stopped the truck with it sett'n right on top of my legs and feet. Nothin to do then but drive on over. Boy, was he excited! Don't remember too much about it now as it's been well over 50 years ago. I do remember the hospital in Olney and the Doc tell'n them I'd never walk. Too much damage to those feet and legs. Numerous broken bones, torn ligaments, damaged nerves and bruised and torn muscles for me to ever walk.
Well--here it is over 50 years later. I'm walked a bazill'n miles mmore or less and still am navigatin along quite nicely. Oh, I won't win any foot races but then again---don't believe anything would be settled even if I could.
I've been busy runn'n the race of life here on earth and while I'm still entered and my pace has slowed a mite---I'm still in the runn'n! Glory to Almighty God!
Jesus Christ is coming for His own very very shortly. The signs spoken of the the Word are quickly being filled to such a degree that He could come at any time. Wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes, pestilences, plagues, unrest----turn on the news and listen! The Word has to be preached to all parts of the world and then the end will come. Have ya'll been keepin up on TBN? They are almost to the point of TOTAL coverage of the entire earth with the Gospel! China and Russia are building up arms at such a tremendous rate ---the Jews are being isolated more each day and now America is starting to turn her back on Isreal. Soon they will stand alone!

But Hoot, did you mind your parents better after that? Or did you, like most kids, figure that it was just a fluke and it couldn't happen to you again? LOL Glad that doctor was wrong. Shows to go you that you just cain't always believe everything you're told.

While doin some think'n this mornin I was really amazed just how many time the old scummy devil has tried to kill me over the last 50 plus years. Strep infection when I was 3, truck thing when I was 5. Yellow Jaundace when I was about 8. It gets worse as I got older. I can remember things happen'n to me that would've kilt an ordinary kid and later man. Only by the Grace of Almighty God and bein watched over by His Angels, have I made it this far. I can't count the number of times my life has been spared by Him over these last bunch of years. And this is just the times that I know of!!!! Apparently He let me live for a reason. That reason is to tell EVERYBODY about Him! I'm not special at all and don't know why He's given me this gift to write. As I've said before--I hated writ'n in school-hated school work too. Amazing how things change in ones lives. I'm awaiting more of His Gifts to use for His Glory! Good friends are also a gift from Almighty God to be cherished and appreciated while we have them. I've met so many friends over the internet that I can't count them. Ya'll are part of that list.
Gotta go mow--anybody wanna ride the old troybilt? LOL.
Jesus is working Mightily now. I can see His hand at work each day as I just look around and especially as I watch the News! "Therefore be ye also ready for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh"! Matt.24;44
