19 minutes

19 minutes.

That is all it took for things to change.

Yesterday, Kacey phoned at 4:20 to let me know that
she and Jay were on their way to drop off Ellie and Hudson.

They were going to have a date!

Nineteen minutes later, I get a call from Kacey.

There were nervous tears in her voice.

Mom, we've been in an accident.  Can you come?

Rachel and I hustled on over to the new stoplight in town.

Someone didn't see it and plowed into the back of Kacey and Jay's car going 40 - 50 mph.
(that is what I think - not necessarily what occurred)

Following the ambulance to the hospital with Ellie, Hudson, and Kacey inside was surreal.

I had just spoken to them.

They were headed over to our house.

Now we were headed to the hospital.


Thank you, Lord Jesus!

Would you join me in prayer thanking the Lord for His providential protection?

Would you pray that Jay and Kacey wouldn't be discouraged in this setback?  (doesn't look as though the family vehicle will be worth salvaging and the other driver was uninsured)

Would you pray that there wouldn't be too much pain and soreness from the impact?

Thank you,

This is a pretty hard post to respond to. What to say?

You have my prayers of gratitude because everyone is ok.

My next prayer will be that Jay and Kacey get a vehicle ASAP.

The third prayer will be in how to deal with the traumatic event for all involved.

I'm so sorry that happened - accidents are terrifying. I am glad you are okay, but I will guess you are very, very sore today. I hope your insurance company will do the right thing and get some assistance for you. I will be praying for you. Love, Mrs. L
