little scary last nite!!!
My son and I picked up his tux for formal and I took him to the mall to get some Chinese food, it was pretty empty, we never!! go to the mall in the evening or on weekends, just weird kids there....anyway I asked if he wanted to take it home or just eat there...we decided to eat there, I asked him if he would like to go and check out American Eagle and see whats new...
he says, "no, I am getting a headache" well we are eating and he says, his headache is getting worse and he wants to just take his food home, ok,
home we go...
here is the scary...
there was a shooting in the mall,
if we hadn't left when we did, we would of been right next to the store where the shooting happened!!!
thank GOD for giving him a headache right then!
They think its gang related, of course!
so, a little scared and relieved!!!

ps. after we were home, his headache was gone.


  1. Praise the Lord for leading you to safety...Amazing how something we think is a bad thing (like a sudden headache) can lead to being a huge blessing...Just shows we should not question what God is doing in our lives.

    And yes I find malls scary in the evenings too.

    Blessings Kelsie

    PS: Hope your sons headache is better now.

  2. Thank the Lord for your son's headache ! This world grows more and more concerning by the day.

    Wishing you a sweet and Beautiful day ..!

    Blessings ..Sara

  3. Sad to say but thank God your son got a headache and wanted to go home, the good Lord was sure looking out for you both.....

    Blessings to you both,

  4. OMG! So glad you both are OK

    Divine intervention!!

  5. Thank God you left when you did. This was scary!


  6. O my! This made me so choked up! What an answer to prayers to have God watch over us! He answers them before we even ask sometimes.... if we only could "pull back the curtain" and see what we are saved from. Thank you so much for sharing this with us, I read it to my 10 year old and 8 year old and they loved it, too.


  7. Amazing, angels were indeed surrounding you and your son. What a scary experience and very glad you both are safe. Diane

  8. Wow doesn't that just shake you in your boots? that was quite a story.

  9. It's amazing not only how much the Lord takes care of us but also his means of doing it. Thanks for sharing. ; )

  10. That will give a person the shivers! Glad you got out of there!

  11. Oh thank goodness for the headache and so glad that you got out of this safely.
    Very scary and hope you are now enjoying the weekend


  12. Thank God that you all left when you did!!! He was truly watching out for you and your family!
    Please take care and have a lovely weekend.

  13. Your angels were looking out for you both. My angels are always protecting me. I have goose bumps - love this post!

    Do you remember the mass shooting at Virginia Tech a few years back? Well, my husband worked there and even though he wasn't there at the time, it still shook me up!
