Good morning tree on my car..

So it was 5:30 a.m. My husband was on the couch reading his Bible before going to work and I was nursing a certain little girl (who had been up since 4 a.m. - in her bed, though) when all the sudden we hear a big cracking noise. Of course, it seems to last an eternity as I hold my breath waiting for the "crash."

Now what made this event "funny" was the fact that just yesterday we had an insurance adjuster out here (from homeowners) to file a claim on our house because the storm that came through on Sunday night did damage to our roof. Result: we need a new roof.

So now we have some car repairs too. Oh it could be a lot worse, damage wise. And for that we are very thankful.

The pictures don't do justice to the enormity of that tree limb.  But the front window is shattered and the driver's side mirror was taken off. 

Bad picture quality.. but his car was spared a major part of the limb.  

that's how close it got to the car ( the bigger limb, that is).  The smaller branches are what got the window and the mirror.  

We are so thankful that the Lord is in control of all things.. even in the details of where a limb could or can fall.
