My husband is okay Thank God

My husband was just in a 3 car accident. Apparently, there was something in the north bound lanes that caused a north bound car to swerve into the south bound lanes and hit the truck that was in front of my husband's car. The first collision caused the formerly northbound car to spin around a couple of times, still heading into the oncoming traffic. They hit my husband's car next despite his slowing and trying to avoid the scene. His car was totaled. Everyone in the first north bound car came out without injury. My husband has bruising and a bloody nose. But, the man who was driving the truck southbound and was hit first, died. He was not wearing a seatbelt. There were two other people in his truck with him that are hospitalized and should be okay according to the police.

The initial terror I felt when my husband called and told me he was in a 3 car accident, was replaced by relief and gratitude to God to hear he had minimal injuries. But, that has been replaced by grief for that poor man and his two passengers and their families. That man was in his own lane when a car just crossed over and hit him. I ask all of you who pray, please pray for this man's family and friends at this time of sudden shock and loss. He is with our Father now, but I can only imagine the grief and shock for those still here as they deal with this unexpected event. Also, please pray for his passengers to be healed and comforted. My heart goes out to them.

Oh, Lord. I just saw the story on the 10:00 news. The first driver that swerved to avoid an object in the dark road is 16. Please keep him and his family also in your prayers. http://www.rockymountainnews.com/news/2008/dec/06/one-dead-six-hurt-in-head-on-wreck/

Oh, Gina! How horrific--I'm so glad your husband is ok. What a shock to go through something like that; for him and for you. My husband saw a truck jack knife going the opposite direction a couple of weeks ago, and had it not been for the concrete divider...

Just another reminder to appreciate every single day.

I'm so glad your husband is ok. I'll pray for your peace as well as that of the others involved.

I drove into a parked car today, in a too-narrow parking lot. Our monster van was not damaged, and the other car just a little, but Really!
Mr. P remembered that as we left home we forgot our usual prayer for safety.

May we all be safe.

I was praying when this accident happened and I annointed myself in the name of Jesus for my family while they traveled on the roads. I had a worried feeling before then. I have no doubt that God heard my prayers. I'm so devastated for that young boy and the family of that man, though. Please do keep them all in your prayers.

Thank you very much for your kind comments.

Gina,

Praise God your husband is ok. I will say a prayer for the man's family and the 16 yr. old boy. Very sad.

Thank you for your prayers for everyone involved.

Annointing the sick documentation James 5:14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.

Mark 6:13 And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.
