Lynn Smith, or valleylynn,as we know her best, shares a story about a miracle that happened to her many years ago. After hearing this story for the first time, I found it affected me deeply and with her permission, I am sharing it in her own words. This is no ordinary "it happened to me" story but one that will most likely leave you speechless and in awe.

That is a most beautiful story. I do believe and am so glad God saved you and your Blessed SIS.
God is great and you; my friend, are too.
Love you dear and Thank Becky for letting us read your story....
I too cried through the reading of your story, Lynn.
I know that miracles happen everyday, but I think they rarely happen in such a powerful, obvious way as yours did. So often people tend to brush them off as "coincidence." But it is just impossible to deny God's loving hand in this one!
My best girlfriend is not a believer, or wasn't when this happened. Until the car was brought up from the canal she insisted that I was the one that got myself out of the car. And in the darkness of being underwater I was just confused about the window I got out of. She actually got angry about what I was telling her and others on what happened in the car.
Afterwards she came to me and put her arm around me and cried and told me she just didn't understand, but would accept that I did not do it on my own. I believe today she is coming to know our Lord after all these years. Please keep her in your prayers.
now lynn i ain't got this story just exactly right in my head. so let's go back to the beginning. you were on your way to the orchard and had to cross this road......now how exactly did the wall of water get created? lol. and are you saying that the window you had to go through was too tiny for you to get out of? i am sooo confused. and it HAD to be the same window that sis got out of too, right? it is as amazing a story as i have ever heard but i just want the details cleared in my head.
Not crossing a road, just driving down a road Barb.
They are large irrigating jet type sprinklers Barb. Nothing like what we would use in our yards. : )
The window was definitely to tiny for me to fit through. That is why everyone thought I was just confused about what window I got out of. Until they brought the car up out of the canal.
Yes, both me and Sis got out the same window.
You are welcome Julie. It took me many years before I felt like I could share it with people outside family and close friends. They were all there, so the knew it was true and not just a fantasy or twisting of facts.
It was time and Nancy was the trigger God sent and Becky was there to publish it. Thanks to both of you.
Another part of God's plan revealed. He brought us together, then opened the door and there was you and Becky on the other side. You know how I struggle with writing Nancy. In that post over at ATP it was like a bolt of lightening. I immediately opened a work doc and it just all went onto the page.
I felt the same way about you. : )
God is so good.
