Tough Day

As days go, this is a tough one. And it’s only 3:16.

I’ve been dealing with some job-threatening persecution at work. That’s another story and it’s been going for several weeks now. Needless to say, it’s caused some stress knowing I may loose my job again, all because I’m a Christian.

This morning, I was downtown taking care of some business. As I was pulling out of the street parking, I was rear-end by a Grand Cherokee. Never heard brakes squeal. I didn’t see him and he didn’t see me. The collision threw me back through my parking space and up onto the curb. My car is messed up pretty bad in the back, but it is driveable. I am ok, but I think I’ll need some serious chiro work. My neck feels pretty messed up.

Three hours later, my wife had a wreck. She rear-ended a new Chevy Tahoe. The Tahoe literally didn’t even have a scratch. Sherri’s car was totaled. Austin was with her and was able to call her attention to the stopped car just in time for her to slow down a little, but it was a pretty hard smack. They are both ok, but Sherri’s chest hurts pretty bad from the air bag. She sits very close to the steering wheel and there wasn’t much space for the bag to do its thing.

So we went from two cars to one car with a hole in the back in the space of three hours. Thankfully, Ashley is away at camp. As long as they don’t call and say she broke her arm, I think we’re safe for the rest of the day. We’re not leaving the house. No one is walking upstairs or they might fall. No one is showering for fear of falling and breaking something. We’re not going to cook lest we burn down the house.

Ok, maybe not quite that much. But thanks be to God we’re all well…
