~THANK YOU, GOD!~
Early Saturday evening my daughter Adrienne, SIL Michael, my granddaughter, Miss K (son's daughter), were involved in an automobile accident. Although our girl's car is probably totaled, somehow the three of them escaped serious injury. Adrienne's a little banged up but she's going to be fine. You may remember a year ago our son, Brandon, was in an accident where his SUV was flipped over and he had to crawl out the hatch... He was also unhurt even though his vehicle was totaled as well.
~TOWING CAR AWAY~
After meeting up with my little family at the accident site I called my Mr. AGPMan and together we decided to go to a local restaurant for dinner. While I was out shopping he'd been busy working on our kitchen remodel and was ready to take a break. Just after the five of us sat down and ordered our food his cell phone rang. Incredibly it was our local police department informing us our aging pickup truck had been hit while parked in front of our home. It was hit head on and knocked so hard that it jumped the curb and landed onto the sidewalk...
Two vehicle accidents in one day...totally unrelated and miles apart.
~HUBBY'S 3/4 TON TRUCK~
This morning I'm incredibly grateful my beautiful girl, her hubby and our Miss K were uninjured. I rejoice over their lives being spared in the T-Bone accident. Although I'm sad over our pickup being heavily damaged (remodeling needs a truck!), I'm thankful the driver wasn't hurt or killed. Apparently he had some kind of seizure and blacked out. If the 3/4 ton truck hadn't been parked where it was he easily could have crashed his car into our home (he was taken to the hospital but we don't know anything about his condition)...
Last night I couldn't escape the thought that none of us know the mind of God, or why He allows what He does. I only know in my most difficult circumstances, I will miss the peace of his presence unless I continue to trust that He is always faithful and always good. Cars and trucks can be replaced...it's just stuff. But, not my family.
"When you go through deep waters, I will be with you.
When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown...
For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior."
Blessings as you rejoice in His goodness!
Love to you...
