Divine Protection and Superman Meet on Mothers Day

Ever get one of those nights you couldn’t sleep? Or two in a row? Yeah, me too. I woke up 3 times each night for two days in a row. And tried to go back to bed, no luck. I have learned that when this happens it may be God asking me to pray for someone or something. So after the 2nd time, I finally got it. I prayed without really knowing why or who it was for. This went on for two nights. Again, no idea who or what – just pray.

I heard about it on the third day. I’d like to to meet my 2nd daughter, Amamda. She is so strong and courageous. She truly is a strong woman that has overcome major obstacles in her life. She is a beautiful Artist, Jewelry Maker, and a bartender at a local Madison Cafe.

It was Mothers Day night. For whatever reason she told me her fellow co-workers decided to stay late after work that day and hang with her as she finished her shift. She works till like 3 in the morning. There were a few customers sitting down at the bar and one with a Superman shirt on.

Amanda told me a man came into the bar and pointed something at her. Demanded she empty the cash register. There have been multiple robberies in Madison bars lately with perps using semi-automatic weapons. She complied. She told me she took out the money from 1’s to 20’s out of the register, hesitated a minute, and something told her to lay the pile of money on the bar. She did. And here is where the customer with the Superman shirt on saw what was going on and stood up.

And here is where you’ll have to read the rest of the story…
Really does restore you hope in humanity, as Amanda said.

At 10: We talk to the @AlchemyMadison bartender who was working when a customer took down an alleged robber. #nbc15 pic.twitter.com/ZepHsR2DKD

And another:

KUNG FU TRAINED CUSTOMER STOPS MAN FROM ROBBING EAST SIDE BAR

All I can say is thank you.

Thank you to Amanda for keeping her wits about her and calling the Police. You stayed calm and kept people safe.  (I would have lost it!)

Thank you to the co-workers who decided to stay later. (You rock!)

Thank you to the Superman customer who saw what was happening and decided to act, to protect, and stop the robber. He actually held him until the police arrived! (What a true hero!)

And thank you to God – for putting everyone right where they needed to be that night. Thank you Lord for keeping my daughter safe. Thank you Jesus for answered prayers (even when we don’t know what we are praying about!)  I love her so much, Mom/Diana Rasmussen 🙂
