Yes, Jesus wept… and then he rolled his eyes…

So… this happened.

MARY ESTHER — A 28-year-old woman was taken to the hospital for evaluation after driving into a Mary Esther house Thursday morning. The woman told Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies she was praying at the time and had her eyes closed, according to the OCSO. The Fort Walton Beach woman was traveling eastbound on Marcia Drive when she failed to stop at a stop sign, went through an intersection and into the yard of a home on Miramar Drive.

Fortunately, no one was injured, but sometimes you have to wonder if God is sitting in heaven watching us and just shaking his head.
