Lilee and I started our Monday out like any other Monday, working on her preschool work and doing chores. Then... Karlton calls me asking for the police station # or should he just call 911 because some old man just had t-boned him pretty good. I told him to call 911..... ;0) Poor guy I knew he was upset and not thinking straight to call me first.... but, I was flattered.
So, Lilee and I jumped in our clothes
and ran out the door. This happened
right in front of Jordan's High School on his way to work , one mile from our house. By the time I got there the mess was cleaned up and the cars were on the sides of the road.
The old man who hit Karlton was at a stop sign and Karlton saw him starting to pull out as he was driving down a strait stretch of road. He swerved in the other lane to try and miss him but the man never saw Karlton and plowed right into him knocking Karlton off the road, a few feet from an embankment, then his car spun and hit the back end of the Karlton's van.
After Lilee and I inspected Karlton and the damage, the tow truck came and took the van away. So then I chauffeured Karlton around to talk to his worker, the insurance agent, and then the rental place. I kept asking him if he was sure he was alright and he would say yes. But, on the way to the last stop he said he hated to say anything but his back was hurting. I told him then lets go to the Dr., he said he was to busy that he had to get to work. But I can assure you he Will be going to the Dr. even if it is tomorrow. I will drive him myself if I have too!!!!! ;0)
The police doing what they do best. There were 3 more Police cars and a truck but they were behind me parked on the other side of the road. The old man sat in his car until the police made him get out.... Praise God no one was hurt badly!!!! I had just prayed this morning for our day today.... I prayed the Lord would put his hand of protection over our family .... And I was not let down!!!! Thank You Jesus!!!!
Now after all that excitement how will Lilee and I get our day back to normal ???? Lol.....
BTW.....Lilee's said, "Man.....we need to get daddy a new van, his is broke!" ;0)
Verses that really spoke to me and helped me get through our adoptions.
(John 14:18) " I will not leave you as orphans, I will come to you."
(Isaiah 43:5-6) "Do not be afraid, for I am with you, I will bring your children from the west. Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth."
(Proverbs 25:25) "As cold water is to a thirsty soul : so is good news from a far country."
(Matthew 6:25-34) The do not worry chapter. This is the chapter that told me we would adopt again and the baby girl woud be named Lily (Lilee). "The lilies of the field". This is a great reminder of why we should not worry, God will take care of his people!
(Psalms 82: 3-4) "Defend the cause of the weak and the fatherless; maintain the rights of the poor and oppressed. Resue the weak and neady; deliver them from the hand of the wicked."
(Psalms 68: 5) "A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling."
(Deuteronomy 10:18) " He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow and loves the alien, giving them food and clothing."
(Philippians 4:13) "I can do all things through him who gives me strength."
(Philippians 4:6-7) " Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your request to God. And the peace of God,which transcends all understanding will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
(Romans 8:28) " And we know that all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."
(James 1:27) "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after the orphans and widows in their destress, and to keep oneself from being polluted from by the world."
I am a mama to 5 kids. 3 handsome boys and our 2 Guatemalan Princessa's. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 15 yrs. I have had a love for the orphans since I was 13 yrs. old. I knew one day I would adopt.Now that we have are we finished? I guess we will have to wait and see what God has in store for us!
