Jesus Took The Wheel

Buckle up and look at the road.

Jesus Took The Wheel
Jourdyn VanderVeen

February 11, 2017, my biggest fear became my reality. I was on my way to the REI Garage Sale in Bozeman and the unthinkable happened. I hit a pothole on the side of the highway and my car malfunctioned. My car went out of control going 70 miles an hour. I went through a fence into a ditch backward.

This has got to be one of the most terrifying moments of my life. I didn’t even realize I went into the ditch, I tried to drive out. Once I realized what happened I went into panic mode. I couldn’t find my phone, so I crawled out of the ditch and started waving my arms on the side of the highway. The first car I came across stopped and called 911 for me. I finally found my phone and called my mom.

All I could think about is how much trouble I was going to be in. I was panicking to my mom about how the insurance was going to go up because my car was totaled.

The police got there and they could not believe I was ok and functioning. The paramedics got there and told me the ditch is usually filled with water and I am really lucky.

The only thing that happened to me was my hat fell off and I got mud on me from crawling out of the ditch. If I would not have been wearing my seatbelt I might still be in the ditch because my car could not be seen from the road. It took the tow truck over two hours to get my car out.

Jesus definitely took the wheel on this one to make it a controlled crash.

That being said, it is important to remember life is fragile. No one knows when their life is going to flash before their eyes. Live every day like it is the last and have no regrets.

Let this be a message to everyone to wear your seatbelt overtime you get in a vehicle.

I truely believe Jesus was not just in my car with me that day, but that he took the wheel.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
