Constance Effie of Kansas City says it's a miracle she and her husband are alive after a bullet flew through her home.

Effie, 70, said the pair were sitting in their living room Saturday evening when a blast tore through a wall, just above her head. 

"I thought maybe our TV blew up," Effie said in an interview with WDAF. "I thought I was in a war zone because that was the loudest noise I ever heard."

She added, "We looked all around and didn't see a hole anywhere and I thought, 'Look, that picture - the glass is all broken."

The picture was a framed metal plaque of the Lord's Prayer.

Effie believes God blocked the bullet from hurting them.

"It hit and fell down behind the couch," explained Effie. "But if it hadn't had the metal there, it might've come on in and hit one of us."

Many on social media agreed.

"Elizabeth Inman tweeted, "God's protection is real." 

"The Lord works in Mysterious Ways," Derek Z. Wathen wrote on Facebook.  "He always said we were to Love His Law."

Meanwhile, Effie was briefly hospitalized after the shooting due to a minor stress-related heart attack. 

Police are investigating the shooting.
