Whose Report Do you Believe?

I know it has been months since I updated this blog, so no one is going to read it but yet I want to write. I want to write to get things out. I want to write so I can clear my head. I want to write so when I look back this will not just seem like a dream but I will know it was real.

My 21 year old nephew, Luke, was involved in a serious car accident early Friday morning.  He was airlifted to Maine Medical Trauma Center. He is currently in the ICU with severe head trauma and other injuries, but the brain trauma is the one they are most concerned with.  

I understand the gravity of the situaton, but I also understand that God is in control of all things.  This did not take Him by surprise, even though that may be hard accept.  I have to believe that He is holding Luke, even now, in the very palm of His hand.  Luke's fate is not a game, by a puppetmaster who is distant and unconcerned.  Luke's fate is not just up to chance.  I know everyone is entitled to their beliefs or unbeliefs, but I choose to believe the God of the Bible! I choose to believe that no matter the outcome, God is still in control.  He knows every single detail of our lives, before it even happens.  I believe that He loves Luke, more then we could ever know. I believe this breaks His heart. 

I don't know what is going to happen, but I know that God real.

I know that God is in control

I know that God has not turned his back on Luke.

I know that God loves Luke.

I know that God's mercy, grace, and love are extended to everyone.

If you read this, please pray for Luke and for his family.

Oh Lesley.... I don't know if there is any one God or more than one, but whatever the higher power is, it is on Luke's side.

I wish the kids and I could come home right now. I feel completely helpless right now. I know everybody does. I hate being so far away in times like these.

I didn't want to tell the kids anything but they kept asking why I'm crying so I did finally tell them. Gillian's very solemn and Matthew had a lot of questions.

I know he can beat this, I wish he would just hurry it up though.
