Last week we were reminded of God's love and protection over us in a big way. Pa, Mom, Matthew, and Micaiah were on their way to our friends house (Marscel stayed home with me because I was sick). As they were turning on their road they were hit by a car traveling 65mph. The other driver, an older lady, came over the hill and not thinking she could slow down in time she she had two options 1 swerve to miss them into oncoming traffic or 2 swerve off to the shoulder of the road. She did the second and lost control of the car hitting right near the passenger door of our van.

They were pushed 60 feet after the hit. That's our van on the left. We are so thankful it wasn't pushed into the road.

A close up of our van... the second to be totaled in our family. Mom was sitting in the passenger seat.

The other car. Her airbag went off and she was fine.

Pa and Mom off to the hospital in their first ambulance ride. Pa hit his face and has a huge blood blister on his lip and Mom bit through her lip. She had to get it glued and it's healing nicely and Pa's x-rays came back good! We were told most people that are in an accident on that road aren't so fortunate and don't make it out alive. Mom said the verse that kept coming to mind was Isaiah 26:3 "You will keep him in perfect peace,
       Whose mind is stayed on You,
      Because he trusts in You."

Back at the Cochrans. 
Thank you so much for taking care of them so well!

We are reminded of how fleeting our life is and rejoicing that though sore and bruised, the Lord protected them from any further harm!
