My Accident and Miracle
My Accident and Miracle Story – By Lisa Ann Pace Jorgensen
March 6th is a weird day for me . . . at least it has been since 2007. It was the beginning of a process for me. A process of change and how I looked at life. 10 years ago I was hit by an intoxicated driver while I was walking on the sidewalk with my little 3 year old son. We happened to be walking on a sidewalk that is on a bridge which crosses over a large cement ditch. The force of the van hitting my back threw me over the edge of that bridge and down into the ditch below. I fell about 9-10 feet. Oh, and I was 6 1/2 months pregnant at the time.
My heart beats just a little faster as I talk about this. I still hold some fears, but I also have overcome many. It was a day of miracles for me, but it also changed my perception of things. I was in a hard time of life (or so I thought) and this accident and miracle, taught me the goodness of life. I believe we all have things happen to us at one point or another that changes us forever. Turning points, so to speak. We have a chance to learn from these experiences and let them help us move forward, or we can let these experiences slow us down.
I’ve tucked a lot of the memories of my March 6th experience away in the corner of my brain, just because so much of it was so overwhelming at the time. But I’ve had almost 10 years now to soak it all in. Ten years to reflect. And now I want to remember. I want to record the details of this accident–the miracles, the pain, the worries, and the wonderment–here in this document. I do this because I don’t want to forget. And when I am 85 years old I want to remember who helped me and how this experience changed me forever.
This is a full account of my accident and miracle that happened after I was hit by an intoxicated driver in 2007. It’s a true story. It’s my testimony of faith and a journey of what I learned along the way. I hope by sharing this story, you also will be able to remember your own faith and the miracles that happen to you everyday. And that you too will know in your heart that each day of our lives is precious . . . that God does exist and we are part of something bigger than ourselves. May each of you be inspired in some small way to make your life meaningful. Thanks for listening.
