Romans 8:28!!

Boy, what a night we had last night!! I fixed supper early so Clay & Jon could go to a basketball game at Liberty. Well, they hadn't been gone too very long when Clay called to tell me that they had hit a deer out on the bypass! :eek: Praise the Lord, they were both ok.....but our van seems to be toast! :rolleyes: He didn't think it was that bad right at first....until he realized that he really wasn't driving it was just coasting. He was able to steer it off to the side of the road, thank goodness. The deer came from the median & hit the driver's side.The cops said the deer was totally busted in half & you could tell by looking at the whole side of our van.....deer poop, guts, hair, etc! Mason has a dolly-thing that you hitch behind the truck to tow a, after Chris got off work (They called me about 6:30...Chris didn't get off til 7pm & went straight from work to get them) & went to rescue them...they borrowed Mason's dolly & went back to go fetch our poor old van home. They didn't get home til 1am!! :eek: I guess the first order of business today will be to go out to the insurance place & proceed from there. Please pray that everything goes smoothly & we will know whether to try & get this van fixed or just get another one.

Praise the Lord we know that 'ALL things work together for good!' (Rom. 8:28)

Sorry to hear about this. I am so thankful that no one was hurt. Sometimes I wonder if deer don't go "vehicle hunting". Good luck getting your van fixed or replaced.

I'm so sorry that happened! I hit a deer a few years ago and it really shook us up.

Praying for wisdom for you to know what to do.

Matthew hit a deer over a month ago. It was horrible. So glad your all safe!
