Praise God! Not so good day on the bike

Well, you know how people say, "I feel like I've been run over by a car", I only say that because it actually happened. I was out for a 63mile ride today and was 51miles into it when a gray Hyundai ran a stop sign and I smashed into the side of it. I flipped over the handlebars and landed on my shoulder. So there I was lying in the middle of the road clutching my arm and checking to make sure all of my parts are still around. I eventually crawled to the side of the road and started checking my collar bone to see if it was broken. It wasn't, but still hurt. After seeing the EMTs and the State policeman I eventually made it home. Now comes the long process of trying to get things replaced by the insurance company. The strange thing is that my most distinct memory of the accident is when my helmet hit the ground, the sound and feeling of the helmet crushing and absorbing the impact and saving my life. God is truly wonderful.
