On Thursday afternoon, my best friends husband was in a motorcycle accident on Highway 24 here in Colorado Springs.
I still truly feel like I'm constantly getting knocked down. Josh is in Texas (and doing very well there so far) and I feel like I've been crazy busy ever since then.
I am so grateful that this was not another goodbye! He will live and we pray God's full healing over him every day. He has some serious injuries but he will recover and we pray have full use of his body again very soon.
He's been in ICU since Thursday and his wife needed a rest yesterday. I was blessed to be able to have friends come and care for my children so that I could stay with him while she went home to get a quick nap. She didn't want to leave him alone and I was touched to be one of two people that she would trust to care for him in her absence.
Please pray for them. They have a 3 year old son, her husband just returned from a year in Afghanistan and they both have an amazing faith in God, he is struggling with "why me?". Pray for healing for him.
I'll be heading up there again today and he should be moving to a regular room today so that will be wonderful for him and for her (she can't sleep in ICU and she hates to leave him so she's struggling to find balance) since she will be able to stay there and live in his room with him. Pray for peace for them both.
