The Accidental Motorist

I need my Insurance Company quick!


There are two sides to every story when accident-prone drivers fill out insurance claims. The following explanations were taken from actual insurance forms.

“But, officer…”

• Coming home, I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I don’t have.
• The other car collided with mine without giving warning of its intentions.
• The pedestrian had no idea which way to run, so I ran over him.
• I collided with a stationary truck coming the other way.
• A truck backed through my windshield into my wife’s face.
• A Pedestrian hit me and went under my car.
• The guy was all over the road; I had to swerve a number of times before I hit him.
• In my attempt to kill a fly, I drove into a telephone pole.
• I pulled away from the side of the road, glanced at my mother-in-law and headed over the embankment.
I had been driving for 40 years when I fell asleep at the wheel and had an accident.

• To avoid hitting the bumper of the car in front of me, I hit the pedestrian.
• My car was legally parked as it backed into the other car.
• An invisible cat came out of nowhere, struck my car, and vanished.
• I told the police that I was not injured but on removing my hat I found that I had fractured my skull.
• I thought my window was down but I found out that it was up when I put my head through it.
• I saw a slow moving, sad-faced old man as he bounced off the roof of my car.
• The indirect cause of the accident was a little guy in a small car with a big mouth.
• I was thrown from the car as it left the road. I was later found in a ditch by some stray cows.
• The telephone pole was approaching. I was attempting to swerve out of its way when it struck the front end of my car.
• I was on the way to the doctor with rear-end trouble when my universal joint gave way causing me to have an accident.
• I was unable to stop in time and my car crashed into the other vehicle. The driver 
and passengers then left immediately for a vacation with injuries.                                                                                               By: Steven Dohanos ~Toronto Sun


For those who speed on the Highway—-here are a few hymns for you:

• 45 mph…………………….God Will Take Care of You
• 55 mph…………………….Guide Me, O Thou Great Jehovah
• 65 mph…………………….Nearer My God To Thee
• 75 mph…………………….Nearer Still Nearer
• 85 mph……………………..This World is Not My Home
• 95 mph……………………..Lord, I’m Coming Home
• Over 100 mph………………Precious Memories

“Friends are like pillars on the porch: Sometimes they hold you up and sometimes they lean on you.”

It is such a delight and privilege to share each week with you, I call my friends. I thought I would share what is happening in my life this last month.  As many of you know I have been struggling with pain after my fall, and the doctors have been trying to find the cause.  Last week after reviewing an ultrasound they sent me for a CT scan and found a mass.  I will be going for surgery possibly next week.  I would ask that you remember me in prayer this month and I will keep you upto-date.

Even this week God is showing me His love, comfort and how His timing is perfect in all things.  In a matter of days I have been able to get an appointment with a specialist and surgeon, which I know is under God’s guidance and control. 

I know God’s plans are perfect and with each plan He has a purpose.  And when God has a purpose for our lives He gives us promises too.  

2 Corinthians 12:9 (ERV)

But the Lord said, “My grace is all you need. Only when you are weak can everything be done completely by my power.” So I will gladly boast about my weaknesses. Then Christ’s power can stay in me.

Lovingly, Karan

Have a great weekend sending love and hugs to you.

    From one lead foot to another- we all need to slow down! Not only driving, but in our daily lives. When we have health issues, it puts
    everything else into perspective. Thank you for sharing with us so we can pray and see and experience God’s amazing power at work.
    Love you so much. Joanna
