Miracles happen everyday and oftentimes you really have to pay attention or you’ll miss it. But sometimes, the miracle is so profound that it will find you. Wrecked and stranded in the Nevada mountains in below zero temperatures, Christina McIntee, James Glanton, and the four kids accompanying them, received their Christmas Miracle well before anyone else.
Wanting to venture out and enjoy the newly fallen snow, the couple took a road trip to the Seven Troughs mountain range. Driving downhill in their jeep, they hit an ice patch and careened over into a bank. Trapped and with the vehicle turned over, the couple had to make some quick decisions. Ultimately, they decided it would be best to stay together with the jeep and hope someone would find them soon. Using supplies in the jeep and what they could gather, they burned a spare tire and used heating rocks to keep the jeep warm. They gathered together and for three days and two nights, they waited. Miraculously, rescuers found the family safe and without harm.
No matter how bleak the situation may seem, it is amazing how when we come together and unite in mind and body, what we can achieve. Because the adults didn’t panic, neither did the kids; they thought it was a camping trip. Saw a phenomenal quote earlier today that read, “Just because you are burdened does not mean you are bound. Get free from whatever baggage is holding you down.” Do not let your situation determine your state of mind. The “miracle” is in knowing, this too shall pass.
