I responded first of all with a little annoyance, but that quickly turned to praise. After all, I had been hit by a car, and neither I nor my bike had any damage. What a God thing! How could I not be thankful! Then, I began wondering if I should report it as a hit and run. Of course, no one was hurt. Also, I had little information to tell the police, except that it was a maroon colored car that looked like a Chevy Cavalier heading south on Wilson Point Road. I decided to not contact the police.
I cannot take biking for granted. My safety depends totally on God. Of course, that is true also for driving cars. Some people wonder if I am not afraid to drive bike on roads. Occasionally, fear rises, but usually I keep pedaling and trying to do so in a safe respectful manner. However, just because I got hit by a car means does not mean I will stop pedaling. My Rio has been in three rear collisions, should we stop driving? When I drove as a flower deliverer, I was hit twice. Did I stop driving flowers then, or did I stop driving period? Many years ago, someone crossed the yellow lines and had a head on collision with my car. My car was totaled. I didn't stop driving those thirty or so years ago either. So, if I didn't stop driving, I won't stop pedaling either.
Let me tell you a secret to driving and biking, and yes, for all of life - Trust God! Don't let anxiousness imprison you.
Let me give you a second secret for driving and biking and living - Drive/bike/live humbly.! Respect all others on the road and in all of life, even if they are different than you.
