a phone call.
Laura (our precious daughter)
was calling from the Holy Cross Hospital in Taos, New Mexico.
She and Ryan (her husband - whom we love dearly)
were on a ski trip to Angel Fire.
They were skiing...
when a snowboarder ran into Ryan.
Long story short:
Ryan is recovering
to repair his broken leg -
the shin's 2 main bones
into 9 pieces.
If you would, please pray for Ryan..
... for good recovery
... and for Laura
- which may be as early as tomorrow.
She'll be driving Ryan's stick-shift car (a Volkswagen Rabbit)
that she learned to drive just two weeks ago.
By the time they get back to Denton she'll be an expert at driving that car.
UPDATE: this afternoon Sam and I offered to go out there with our much more comfortable car--- and they took us up on it... we leave tomorrow morning. - thanks for your prayers!!
One wonderful thing about this is that Ryan's brother, Zach, 'happened' to be there with them when the accident happened... so he could help out in all the ways that needed help. He's since left for home, near McKinney.
(I know, that picture at the top doesn't look like an 'Oh dear' picture... but isn't it good?)
Well, that's my post for the day.
We're just glad nothing worse happened.
Thank you, Lord.
