My mom borrowed my car during church service today.  When she had gotten back to church, she was hit on the driver's side.  I have (had?) a Beetle.  The officer on the scene said that it was a miracle that no one was hurt.

I got mad.  The driver has no insurance, no license, and the plates didn't match the car.  But after I got mad, I started to cry.  My mother was apologizing to me (???).  I could feel myself getting angrier.  But then, this sense of calm came over me and I started singing, 

It's a new season

It's a new day

A fresh anointing

Is flowing my way

It's a season of power

And prosperity

It's a new season

Coming to me

Then I could laugh with the other women and talk about how we were right where we were supposed to be because God knows how ghetto we can be.

Anyway, just thought I'd let my girls know what was behind my thought bubble.

God is so amazing!

We're blessed in the city

We're blessed in the field

We're blessed when we come and when we go

We cast down every stronghold

Sickness and poverty must cease
