Jesus Take the Wheel

What a weekend?! Yesterday, I got to go to see the University of Memphis Tigers clinch the C-USA men's basketball title. It was pretty awesome and I am ready to see the Tigers in action.

Last night, Fred and I went to an early St. Patrick's Day party at my friend, Crystal's, house. It was great to see my girlfriends from high school. Overall, the day was wonderful.

Today was a whole different story. Fred and Mason left driving to our plant in Nashville, Georgia at 7:45am in the Tahoe with a U-haul behind it. This is a drive that I've been on many times. Around 3:00pm, I got a call from Fred saying that he and Mason had been in an accident. Thankfully, they are both ok, but the Tahoe is totaled.

A car in front of them lost control, swerved in front of them, hit a wall, hit them, and they then hit a wall. The U-haul jack-knifed on them. God was with them and the other driver. They have a witness who saw the driver driving erratically because of a bad tire earlier.

I've been a wreck ever since I received the call. Jesus took the wheel.

They're spending the night in Atlanta tonight. They have to meet with insurance companies tomorrow. I am just so thankful that they are ok. Please say a prayer for them as they deal with the insurance companies and continue on with their business trip.

I can't wait to hold and kiss Fred when he returns. I don't think I am fully convinced that they're ok until I see them in person. Unfortunately, it may not be for another two weeks.

Praise God they are okay! That sounds so scary. I know you will be SO relieved to see Fred when he gets back.
