Some good news, for a change–
Two-year-old child hanging from the ledge of a second-story window, and nobody around but a woman in her 33rd week of pregnancy. Child can’t hold on, and he falls–but the woman, who has stationed herself below the window just in case, catches him and neither of them gets hurt (https://www.breitbart.com/pre-viral/2023/05/09/pregnant-iowa-woman-catches-falling-child-two-story-building/).
We’re used to saying God moves in mysterious ways. But sometimes His providence moves in, well, action movie ways! What could be more dramatic than this incident? If that woman hadn’t come walking along just when she did, if she’d been a minute earlier or a minute later, there probably would have been a tragedy. She only noticed because the toddler threw a few things out the window before climbing out himself. It’s too bad, but toddlers need a lot of watching-over.
When is it going to sink in on this lady that God used her to save a human life? She’ll have to sit down…

Wow! That’s an amazing work of providence.
Things like that seem to happen around this blog. Maybe we’re doing something right.
The fact that the woman hero was pregnant made it even more or a wonderful story.
They haven’t yet succeeded in turning us all into Eloi.
