I don’t know if all of you read the BCWE Blog so I wanted to include here what John Pearson wrote about Andrew Pearson’s accident. We thank God for His goodness in sparing Andrew to serve God. We do not know what the purposes are for everything but we know that He works everything for His honor, glory and to conform us to the image of His Son.
We had an eventful night. Andrew was in an accident on his motorcylce just about the time that VBS got rolling. Someone at the scene was nice enough to call us and let us know that he had messed up his leg (really his foot and ankle) pretty bad. They took him to North Fulton Hospital (where my dad is a volunteer) and after 3 hours of surgery and some hefty plaster work, he is resting in his room with his wife at his side. This is a night that Sandy and I are very grateful to God for sparing our son from what the paramedics said could have been much worse. They said lucky, I know we were given a grand measure of mercy.
Some other things I am thankful for. I am thankful that my son is alive. I am thankful that he married one of the sweetest young ladies I know and that they love each other very much.
I am thankful for Austin and Betty who never cease to show us and so many others true friendship. I am thankful for a church family that loves us enough to spend the hours with us while we wait to see how surgery turns out. We had a waiting room full.
I am thankful for a God that loves us and delivers all things for our good.
I am so very thankful for my wife, Sandy who is the greatest.
