From Mr. Mom's Mailing List (261)

Diane, a young university student, was home for the
summer. She had gone to visit some friends one evening
and time passed quickly as each shared their various
experiences of the past year. She ended up staying
longer than planned, and had to walk home alone.
She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she
lived only a few blocks away.As she walked along under
the tall elm trees, Diane asked "God" to keep her safe
from harm and danger.

When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to
her house, she decided to take it, however, halfway
down the alley she noticed a man standing at the
end as though he were waiting for her. She became
uneasy and began to pray, asking for "God's"
protection. Instantly a comforting feeling of
quietness and security wrapped around her,she felt as
though someone was walking with her. When she reached
the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and
arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the newspaper that a
young girl had been raped in the same alley, just
twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling
overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could
have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord
for her safety and to help this young woman, she
decided to go to the police station. She felt she
could recognize the man, so she told them her story.

The police asked her if she would be willing to look
at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She
agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had
seen in the alley the night before. When the man was
told he had been identified, he immediately broke down
and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her
bravery and asked if there was anything they
could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one

Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her.
When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she
wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either
side of her."

Moral of the story... Don't underestimate the power of
