The Best Laid Plans...

Not two hours after I had taught my Ladies Bible Study group in which I said "We don't know what the future holds. God does not hold back bad things from Christians in this world or else every one would want to be a Christian, but He does bring good out of bad."  This is what our next two hours held:


I'll dispense with the details, but suffice it to say that Barry was alone in the car, both cars were totaled, but neither driver was hurt.  The other driver was going 'way too fast in a congested area and hit our car so hard he took off the front end and it went flying.  Fortunately there was a witness as to the cause of the accident.  So it is a BIG praise that no-one was hurt and no, we are not exempt from the troubles and trials of life.


So the next couple of days will be dealing with insurance and getting transportation. We have only the one car.  But our life could have been drastically changed in  a second.  So thank you Lord, for safekeeping, and may we always be ready to meet Him.

Praise and thanks that your husband was not injured--nor for that matter, the person who caused the accident.

My goodness look at those pictures. I'm so glad Berry is OK. Cars can be replaced...

I love that song that says "We know not what the future holes, but we know WHO holds the future!"

God's mighty strong arm was protecting your MOTH!!

My goodness Chris - thank goodness no-one was hurt. Still, I bet Barry was shaken up. As you say, we never know what's around the corner. Hugs. x

A huge praise indeed, Chris. I am so thankful that no one was harmed. Sometimes in the midst of trials and troubles it is hard to keep our eyes on God, isn't it? To see that good can and does come from the bad...tough lessons to learn and to accept at times. I thank God for his patience with us; definitely not always deserved.

It does my heart good to see MOTH standing there, not so happy of course, but at least whole. Our God is faithful, even in times like this!

As long as no one was hurt then it doesn;t matter - it is only metal. Is that a pigeon I see surveying the wreckage.

I was going to ask but now I know why you are going car hunting.

Thank God no one was hurt. That has a major case of "ouch'.
