I Know God Protected Me

~Old style ( best) buckskin Morgan horse, belonging to my neighbor. Isn't she pretty?~
Yesterday afternoon I came inside from my back porch and entered my hall-way to come face to face with an intruder intent upon burglarizing our home. We scared each other, then he ushered me into another room of our home and told me "we have a gun, put your head down and count to 100", whereupon he yelled to his partner and they fled my home. THEY fled my home. I am thanking and praising my God who protected me. My family could be making funeral plans today as the intruders left with a loaded gun. "Do not be afraid of sudden fear, nor of the onslaught of the wicked when it comes ; for the Lord will be your confidence, and keep your foot from being caught." Proverbs 3:25, 26

Kathy! Are you serious! That is the scariest thing I've heard in a long time.I'm thankful that they left without harming you. Are there any leads on who they were? You have to still be shaken up. I'm praying that peace is restored to you. I'm praying for your continued protection and thankful that you are so blessed. Sending my love, too.Kerrie

That is beyond scary! I am so glad you are OK! I hope the police are able to catch who they were. It is very sad when we can not feel safe in our own homes anymore.

Kathy I am thanking God that you are safe! What a terrible thing to go through - to feel so vulnerable in your own home. I pray that you will find your home a sanctuary again. So grateful that the thieves were moved to leave you unharmed.

When I started reading, I smiled thinking you were going to say a raccoon or something. But I am shocked! And so thankful that you are not harmed and we have every reason to praise God for that! I am thankful for your safety and your life. I can only imagine how your family feels.
So happy to see your blog!

How scary that must have been for you. I'm so glad that he left you alone and just took a few things. You never know their intentions for sure, sounds like he just wanted to rob the house. That man will have to answer to God someday for the horrible thing that he has done.

Praising God with you, Kathy! Truly, I know because this has happened to me, twice. Once was an attempted rape and murder; once while I was asleep in my bed in the next room. God protected me as He protected you; bless His name forever!
Good locks on all the doors and windows happen next.

Do you have a dog in the house? If not, you need a big one.
So thankful for your safety!

Oh, Kathy. I am so glad that you are okay. Praise the Lord for watching over you, and protecting you. This gives me chills. We had a home invasion a couple of miles away a week or so ago (that lady was okay too).

I'm sending you a huge hug. God bless.
