Today is a big milestone at the Camp house! You might be asking what is happening that’s so big it warrants a blog post? Well for us we are celebrating our son, Drew leaving home and moving back to Lansing. If you aren’t familiar with what happened to Drew you can read about it in detail here and here. But the short version is that on Mar. 9 we received a phone call that Drew had been in a snowmobile accident and that he was not wearing a helmet and the snowmobile hit a sea wall (they were on a lake) and he flew 20 yards and smashed and broke a shore station. He was air lifted to a hospital 40 min. away at the scene of the accident. It has been a whirlwind journey!
Yesterday while in church we were singing the song, Christ Alone, by Hillsong. There was a verse in that song that grabbed me:
“Christ alone; cornerstone
Here is the song if you’d like to hear it.
Those words were exactly what happened to our family! We saw God’s hand in so many, many little ways all along this whole journey. So many, I’d love to share a few:
1. I f Drew would have landed on his back at the scene of the accident he would have probably died. But him landing on his side and his broken jaw was a really good thing.
11. We had hundreds of people praying for us and supporting us in many ways. Each prayer lightened our burden and load. We are very grateful for those prayers and encouragement.
12. Drew’s boss saved his position for him so he will be stepping back into a job that he LOVES! So grateful.
13. The fact that yesterday was 14 weeks to the day of the accident and Drew is resuming his life today is incredible. Only God could do that!
Saying good-bye today is much different than this time.
There are many, many more blessings but these are just the highlights.
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good” Romans 8:28
