Weekend Recap :: August 6

6:30 PM

Alex and I always remind each other that tomorrow is not guaranteed. The next fifteen minutes are not guaranteed. 
It was supposed to be a relaxed weekend. On Saturday, I was getting ready to go workout then head to one of my good friend's son's birthday party when I got a call from my godson's mom. Asher (my godson) likes to take people's phones and call people out of the blue lol. Before I answered I thought it was Asher calling to talk to me. 
It wasn't Asher's voice, It was his mom's voice and not her typical cheerful voice. "We got into a car accident and Asher was airlifted to Cooks". My heart fell to my stomach and onto the floor. It was the worst feeling. One of the scariest fears is that something would happen to that little boy. 
I also have this tendency to think of the worst possible scenarios in my head. 
So many thoughts raced in my head.
I prayed Lord please please.
He gave me some comfort and reminded me of His sovereignty. 
All I could ask Keahna in the most frantic manner possible was "are you kidding?" 
If you know me at all - you know that I love this little boy to pieces ever since I held him on an afternoon back in August 2010. I fell completely head over heels for him. I love him more than he will ever know. I never believed in love at first sight but I fell totally in love with him when I held him in my arms. I would give up anything in a heartbeat to see him smile. And now this.
His mom informed me about his condition which was stable. He was wearing his seatbelt when a truck ran a red light which caused a lacerated spleen. He was sent to the hospital to be monitored because it was a grade 3.  
I drove as fast as I could to the hospital praying, praying, praying that God wouldn't have call him home. You see, the people in our lives are not ours. They are God's. I know that people don't like to hear that. God lets us enjoy their company here on earth. God lets us borrow them.
And sometimes calls them home. And God is sovereign, perfect, and loving.
I literally ran into the waiting room almost in tears but I didn't want Asher to see me cry. His spleen started to heal itself. Isn't it incredible how God created our body with such intelligence to heal itself?
I cannot thank God enough for Asher and his family. I love them so much. 
Asher was released from the hospital today. Praise the Lord!
Thank you for reading this. I pray that this story would remind you that life is short. Things happen unexpectedly. I hope you would live your life to the fullest and enjoy your time spent with loved ones. I know that this sounds like a total cliche but once you experience something like this - it's totally different.
