I said in the earlier post that I'd be back later today, and here I am, but I've changed what I was going to write because my busy day took a very different turn. While having lunch with Dr. Karanja from Beulah Heights University, I got a call that my parents had been in a serious car accident in Covington. The driver of an enormous cement mixer truck wasn't looking, and plowed into them, virtually destroying their car, and knocking it about 40 feet, and into the woods beside the road. Miraculously, they walked away in one piece. Dr. Sheila X-rayed them, and is going to treat them for possible whiplash, but apparently it defies logic that their necks weren't broken.
They're shaken, but OK. Mom said that she read today's AYITN entry this morning, and particuraly concentrated on #2: Today I will walk in safety, with no fear of accident or calamity, for the Lord is my confidence!
She prayed the affirmation, and believes that that is why their lives were spared. If you saw how huge the cement truck was, and how bad their car looks, you'd know how blessed I am that I didn't lose my parents today.
Anyway, I'm sure that you'll keep them in your prayers. Also, I've returned most of the calls, e-mail and texts that I've gotten today...a lot is going on with a lot of people right now...but I ask for your understanding if I don't get to the rest of them tonight.
I love you all.
