Prayers Please...

Coffee of the Day - Eggnog


I have a very personal request of each of you this morning. As I was making my morning coffee about half an hour ago, my hubby came downstairs and told me that our oldest son was in a car accident on his way to school. he appears to be okay, but it looks as if our car is going to be totalled. I am on pins and needles waiting for each scrap of news.

My husband had spent yesterday working on our son's car, which is why Tyler took ours. as I am typing, Dave is out in the garage frantically trying to complete work on the car, keeping his mind off of what is going on elsewhere.

you can't even imagine how hard it is to not be able to leave to go to my son - to offer him comfort or check on him. we only have the one car. I know my husband feels the exact same way.

I will update as I hear more. but I do covet your prayers for him, please. thank you from the bottom of this mom's heart.

edited as of 9:45 am: a very kind police officer brought my son home to me. a bump on the head along with abrasions where his head hit the window, plus a nasty headache, seem to be the only injuries so far. you can't even begin to know how very grateful I am. the other driver is okay as well. thankful on that front, too.

if the car had hit even 12" different from where it did, my son would not be here. God kept him safe. and I am singing my hallelujahs...

this is the same son who was hit by a speeding car while he was bike riding back when he was in jr. high and should not have lived through that accident either.  

don't ever tell me God doesn't keep an eye out for each of His children. we may not understand what goes on day to day, but He sits on the throne, and that is all that matters.

So happy to hear your son wasn't seriously injured! We never stop worrying about our children....my daughter had a cancer scare this June & I was a mess until she came out of surgery & the doctor told us everything was ok. Hearing those words lifted a huge weight off my shoulders that I hadn't realized was even there! They will always be our babies!
Hugs, Renee

I'm so happy you had a good update to share. What a scary event! I'm sorry to hear about the car, though.

Oh my Jen, I am so happy to read your update! I'm relieved to know he is home safe. I bet you feel like you NEVER want to let him out of the house. I am praying for him and you guys, even though he's home and of course thanking God!
Peace,

I am so glad yourson is safe. My son totaled a car several years ago, new driver on ice. He called us to let us know so I knew he was Ok but I wanted to die, I was so worried. when I saw the car I broke down, not because of the car because my son was standing next to it apologizing to us. I believe Gd had a plan, we just dont understand

Do hope your son continues to be OK & that you all manage to get a good sleep tonight. Hope the car situation can be resolved soon too.

With love & prayers for all the family, Gill K
