It didn't help that when we called our oldest son in Wisconsin today, his voice was a little bit shaky because he had just witnessed an accident right in front of his house - a car had hit someone on a bicycle. A medical person on the scene could not find a pulse, and our son said there was blood everywhere.
Life is so fragile.
I sent oldest son a check to buy himself a good bike helmet. It's not enough, but it's something.
We'll be getting up at 4:30 in the morning in order to see youngest son off to the airport, and we have a delegation of family members who have promised to pick him up on the other side of the world. I think he will be ok.
29 With your help I can advance against a troop ;
with my God I can scale a wall.
30 As for God, his way is perfect;
the word of the LORD is flawless.
He is a shield
for all who take refuge in him.
