Years ago I was married to a cattle rancher.
Our ranch was about 40 miles out of town and so I lived on our farm in
town with three little girls so that they could go to school. Weekends
we went to the ranch and/or my husband would come down. It was round-up
time and I was on the way to take "chuck wagon" to the guys sorting cattle
on the ranch. I had the back of our big station wagon full of food
and goodies and headed out expectiong to be there by noon. I was already
running a little late. On the way one of the girls had to go "pottie".
We pulled off or a forest service road and let her do her thing.
While backing back onto the road I missed the bridge and high-centered
with one rear wheel suspended in mid-air off of the road over a ditch.
I tried everything to get car back on the road to no avail. I had
just read where we should "Praise God in all circumstances" and began to
do so. I was concerned about being late with food and my husband
could get pretty unpleasant sometimes so was double afraid. After
being stranded at least 1 hr. I praised God continously and heard a noise
coming over the hill. I sent my daughter to have a look. It was just the
Cab of a large forest service truck equiped with a chain and hoist who
was able to pull me out in a few minutes. When I got to the ranch,
it was noon. I was not late and it was like I had lost nearly over
an hour of time. Time had stood still. By all rights, I should have been
over an hour late. We all enjoyed the food and I praised God for his miracle.
