That's it. We didn't hit a rock or a bump that sent us rolling. Darik didn't overcorrect. We weren't in a hilly area or one with cliffs. In fact it was pretty much the only flat, safe part of Oregon to run off the side of the road. Darik gets out to the check the car and all that's wrong is the fender (obviously) from taking out a reflector pole. But not even that or anything else tore up the bottom of our car. He hops back in and we're on our way.
I have never had such a testimony of answered prayers than that moment. We literally should not all be in one piece right now. Several times since then we have taken a few moments to literally Thank the Lord for his protection.
p.s. There must be something out there that we're supposed to do in this life because with all our cross country trips it's a miracle we're even still alive.
