The Scratched Windshield

I've had my 2002 Honda Accord for nearly nine years. I'll hit 200,000 miles before this week is over.

When I bought this car, the right side of the windshield was scratched deeply. When driving into the sun, it was difficult to see clearly. I asked the dealer if this could be buffed out, but the person who did this told the salesman that the scratches were too deep.

Fast forward to today. I just finished washing and waxing my car and, when cleaning the windshield from the inside, noticed that the scratches were gone. Totally.

Apparently, using the windshield wipers these past years has slowly worn down this defect. I remember the rubber buildup on the windshield at first, but this is now nonexistent. I did go through wiper blades more quickly than usual, and I'm sure that the glass ridges caused this.

When I have a problem, often it is resolved in a similar fashion . . . slowly but surely. In like manner, my windshield was made whole over a long period of time. Damage to the blades occurred, but it is now corrected, without any effort from me other than turning on the wipers.

Having faith is necessary when resolving problems. Believing that the end result will be all right is a must. Humanly, however, we must be involved. Trusting that God will provide all we need to support us is comforting.

Blessings and peace,
