On Tuesday afternoon, we left our house on the north side of Atlanta heading for Dallas. Our plan was to drive until at least Tyler, Texas (about 80-90 miles away from Dallas.) We got gas just east of Birmingham, Alabama, and drove until we needed gas about 45 minutes east of Shreveport, Louisiana. We stopped, got gas, and got back on the road. We thought all was OK, but we were wrong.

It was a very windy and rainy night, so when I felt that the car was a little hard to control, I assumed it was nothing more than weather. But as time went on, I began to realize that the difficulties I was having handling the car weren’t due to the weather.

I knew we had to be in Dallas at 1pm, and we had to keep driving, but as we kept driving, I knew we really did have to stop. I pulled off in Longview, Texas, and realized why we were having problems driving.

We had a flat tire.

It wasn’t completely flat, but there was a screw in the tread, and it had slowly been letting out air. For almost 2 1/2 hours, we had been driving on a flat tire. And as we had been driving, the tire pressure was getting lower and lower, and that explains why the car had been getting harder and harder to control.

I changed the tire out for the spare, and we stayed the night in a hotel. The next morning, I took the car to the tire store, they patched and re-inflated the original tire, and we were on the way.

We look back at it now, and praise the Lord for keeping us safe. We are so thankful for your prayers as well. We know that many of you are praying for us, and ask the Lord to keep us safe on the roads.

And you can know that God has answered your prayers.

Thank you for praying for us as we travel, and keep on praying! God is hearing and answering your prayers!
