Car Accidents & God's Mercy

Mike got in a car wreck yesterday. The likelihood is that his car is totaled. A teenager had pulled out onto the road and t-boned straight into Mike who was traveling 45 mph.

Thankfully no one was seriously injured. Both passenger side doors of Mike's car cannot be opened at all. The police officer ticketed the girl and she was held liable for the accident. He has a very stiff neck and shoulder and back as well as headaches. But all in all it could have been much, much worse.



No kids were in the car with Mike. PTL

I wasn't in the car with him but was close by and able to help. PTL

Our insurance provided a rental car. Again, PTL

No one was seriously or permanently injured. PTL

I'm so thankful for God's mercy in my life. I must confess though I held Mike very tight and I could hardly put a cap on my tears. It was really hard to hear my husband tell me he was in an accident. It brought up losing my sister and nephew in a car accident all those years ago.

But this was NOT that accident. And God was merciful.

In the meantime Mike had to miss a day of work and he doesn't have work for the rest of the week.
Time for rest and icing and ibuprofen. We are also on the look-out for a new car. Just something that can get Mike to and from work safely and reliably.

Thank you Jesus for your mercy and protection and that you are working out all things for our good for those who are called according to your purpose!
