Yesterday, while I was cleaning on the house our pastor came by and I went to the door thinking this is new I usually don't see the pastor at my house unless Lonnie is around. Then he said, "Lonnie is ok he has had an accident and he had the hospital call me and tell me that your husband was ok they were just checking him out as normal proceedure."
Something told me that it wasn't completely normal and that he must be hurt to some extent because I have been in accidents and gone straight home. Yet, if it was in his work vehicle which was a dump truck, then maybe that was the proceedure just for the insurance purposes and such.
So I calmed myself and waited for Lonnie to call me from the hospital. I gathered the children together in the living room and we all had a word of prayer for Daddy because I know that there is power in God's people praying and in families praying together.
Then I let them go and got on facebook and asked my friends and followers to pray for Lonnie and us. Thank you to all of you out there who saw the message and took time out of your day to pray for our family. Later, I finally found out that Lonnie had a blow out and the Dump Truck rolled with him in it. It was really scarry for him and scarry for me not knowing what would happen.
I was so glad when I heard his voice on the phone telling me that he was getting a ride home with his supervisor. I wasn't able to just jump in the van and drive over there to Austin an hour away and it wasn't serious enough to warrent getting a baby sitter to come over or so it was reported. So I was frustrated and nervous at home. Thanks so much again for holding us up in your prayers. God is faithful to provide and care for us!
Lonnie is now at home with very sore ribs and back. They said that they didn't find any breaks but because of the sharp pain and all there could be something they missed so please keep sending the prayers our way. It's so nice to hear his heavy sleep breathing behind me as I write this post. He could have been taken yesterday. We are SO BLESSED!
