Thanking God for the Safety of a Friend

You may have heard about the terrible bridge collapse in Minneapolis earlier tonight. When I heard about it I immediately thought about my dear friend Julie. Even though I was guessing she was ok I just wanted to know for sure so emailed her when I got home.

She emailed back to say she was fine but that had it been just one hour later she and a friend may have been on that bridge as that was normally the route they would take when Julie was taking Sandy home. Wow! Protected by the hand of God. They did pass near the site on a parallel bridge about an hour after the collapse and say that the damage is quite devastating.

There is concern that some people in Julie and Sandy's office may have been on the bridge when it collapsed. They still don't know. What we do know is that many families lives were forever changed earlier tonight.

Praying for all those who have lost loved ones, who are injured, caring for the injured and working at the scene. Please pray. Thanking God for the safety He provided to Julie and Sandy.

  4. Yeah, I did hear about that. Absolutely shocking. Will be praying for the families effected. When I heard it on the radio, they still didn't know the casualties etc. Praying that they are very few.

  10. How sad to hear about that...first I have. I'm glad to know that Julie is safe and so sorry for the losses of others.

    This does not help my phobia of those things...not one bit.

  13. I'm glad that your friends are safe. My SIL and her husband live about 10 minutes from the bridge (they're fine too). It's just so devastating.
