We found out this morning that our teenage nephew TJ, was in a horrific car accident last night. The truck he and a friend were in flipped four times and when it came to a stop was facing the opposite direction on the other side of the road. TJ and his friend were ejected from the vehicle.
TJ suffered some serious lacerations and contusions to his head, He has staples and stitches in his head and face. His nose is broken and his body is battered. I am not certain the condition of his friend at this time. Please pray for him and his family as well. They must be going through so much fear and worry also. He was driving and that I think adds a burdened feeling of guilt as well. It would for me.
Please pray for my sister-in-law as well. Kayla has still not had the baby which is a GREAT thing but a day to day and now this with TJ. She drove up on this scene with it's flashing lights and TJ lying on the ground. The police officer caught and stopped her as she started running to him. I could not imagine the fear that consumed her at that moment. She is a strong woman and we admire her for the strength and courage she has.
As she and I shed tears of thanksgiving that his life had been spared, I am certain that several of them were tears of fear and what ifs. Thank you dear precious Father God for saving his life and holding him close!
