Late last night we heard that two close friends of ours were in a bad car accident when two young people didn't stop at a stop sign at a blind intersection on a country road. The mother is is critical condition with head injuries(She's at UNMC in Omaha), and the daughter is reportedly not physically hurt. We are keeping aware of the situation and Mom and Dad will visit them soon, depending on how serious Mrs. P's condition is as the day goes on. I know this sounds like a sad and terrible happening, but what does Romans 8:28 say? We know that God causes all things to work together for good, to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. And I hope and pray that He might use this "accident" to bless this family with spiritual growth, especially Mrs. P, and use them to be witnesses to others.
I have always been a careful driver, even though I don't always stop at country intersections during the winter and spring when the corn isn't blocking the view. Now I will be even more careful. There have been so many young people killed driving on country roads in our community, just from driving too fast on gravel roads or going through stop signs.
