Blessed Be the Name of the Lord

Last week, David was returning from his great-aunt's funeral (in Oshawa) when he was involved in a car accident (he was not at fault). He suffered just minor bruising, but the car was totalled. It was a difficult day: the funeral, the accident, the reporting of the accident, the line-ups at the collision centre, talking to insurance agents, trying to get home, lining up at the rental car place, the traffic on the way home....

However, at the end of the day, he was able to tell us how good the Lord is. We are thankful, of course, that he was not injured, or worse. And we have seen blessings of the accident too. Tim has been wondering what God was trying to teach us. Emily was able to encourage David by reminding him our treasures are in heaven. And David says he was filled with a sense of the provision of the Lord while he was waiting for the tow-truck to arrive.

Blessed be the name of the Lord!
