Was it LUCK that saved the child?

Did you read these article?

A 15-month-old boy who leaned against a window screen in his family's third-floor apartment fell all three stories, but was lucky enough to land in a freshly mulched flower bed. The Northeast Philly apartment building is otherwise surrounded by concrete and parking lots, and a neighbor says the garden bed was lined with only gravel just a few days ago. After a brief four-hour stay in the hospital for evaluation, the baby was back at home with his family.

The family of a toddler who fell three stories in Northeast Philadelphia Monday afternoon may have a freshly planted flower bed to thank for saving his life. The incident happened at about 2:37 p.m. in the 2300 block of Tremont Street in the city’s Bustleton section. Police say the 15-month-old child was in the care of his grandmother when he apparently leaned against the screen and fell to the ground approximately 30 feet. Fortunately, the toddler landed in an area covered in mulch. According to neighbors, the flower bed had just been installed over the weekend, covering an area that was previously gravel. Police say the little boy was rushed to Aria Health Torresdale Campus where he was hospitalized. He was treated and released home with a family member just four hours later. The toddler’s family says he is doing OK. Police say the fall has been ruled an accident.

It makes me sad to think that no one mentioned the miracle that really occured here.  It wasn't just LUCK as they would want us to beleive or the mulch miraculously saved the child.  It wasn't even fortunately that the child fell in the only area covered by with mulch not concrete.  

Regardless your belief or your explanation of this event.  I can not see in my heart how GOD's GRACE did not protect this child.  It just strenghtens my belief in HIM even more and I give THANKS.

To all of you with children, bundles in the oven, DH or even a friend on MH.   Give them a HUG and tell them you love them.

I  LOVE you all.

Two days ago in Ma. a two yo baby boy fell out the window and landed on black top and survived. This is so sad and happy I guess since he survived. Yikes, I love this weather but if your gonna open your windows and have children in your home maybe you should think about opening the windows from the top

We love you!
